Comfortable seats!

It was enjoyable 2 hr bus from Christchurch to Akaroa, and the driver gave us some lessons about the city which is really helpful. The best highlight of the bus route is the lookout and the small river town stops. I am sure that you will have enjoyable trip in Akaroa after this.

Great experience. Driver very helpful and nice. Bruce was quite funny with his commentary which was great. Thought getting a free map of Akaroa was really nice. The stop at little river was too short to use the bathroom and get a drink. Perhaps make it a wee bit longer. Would recommend this day trip. Wear your walking shoes as i walked all around the town.

From CHRISTCHURCH to Akaroa - BUS Service (One Way)

Hi Jenny, Its great that you enjoyed your trip! We do keep our little river stop very short as some people have cruises booked early and have to be there on time. We will look at leaving enough time for both the bathroom and a drink though. I'm sure we can arrange this. Thank you!
