Hey anyone doing this tour? I've booked in and paid it off! YAY! Feels good.

Just wondering if this tour has been confirmed for going ahead. It just seems that there is a lot of people going on the tours before and after this tour, but not on this one.

How can I find out if there is a guaranteed departure on this one?
Thanks!

    Hi,

    I’m Olivia i am 29 from Melbourne.I am travelling on my own and i will be joining the tour from Christchurch on the 8th but i am going to be staying at the Bealeys Hotel the night before.

    Its good to be able to find others that will be on the tour as well. Have you guys decided on any of the optional things that you can do?

    I no the time has just flown by. I arrive in Auckland on the 28th mid afternoon. I think most people will prob arrive a day or so early so some of us should get a chance to catch up before the tour starts.

    Hi Ashlie,

    I am joining onto the Scenic Southern. I’m sorry for the late reply for some reason i didn’t get you reply until today.

    I have been thinking about the Fox Glacier flight but i am not too sure about what to do in Queenstown as yet.

    I hope that you guys have a ball on the North Island and i am really excited to be meeting you all in Christchurch.

    C u on the 8th!!
