    Hi Emily,

    I am under the impression that you have to make your own way. I am flying out to ******church a day earlier than my tour and staying at the hotel pick up point (as its an early start) – I have been told to just jump in a taxi… not sure if that helps?

    Hi emily18 i was just wondring if you were going to be starting christchurch as i am and if we arrive at about the same time on the plane then i throught that maybe we could meet and catch the johnsons shuttle bus and that way we would already have met someone that is going on the same trip as us,i have six weeks tomrrow friday the 25th of august until i fly out of sydney, my half brother who lives in auckland has just sent me an e-mail to say that the south island has just had a BIG SNOW FALL he said that the pitcures have been on tv and look so pretty he sasid that when i come that their probley be only snow on the mountins so PACK WARM CLOTHS, if you would like i could find out what time my plane gets in at christchurch and then if it is the same time and flight we could meet up what do you think. i know that i am flying with air new zealand. hope to talk ot you soon.

    hello there, you have to make your own way to the hotel or where the contiki bus is leaving in this case Pacific Park or Bealeys hotel. No one will be there to meet you. your options are taxi or shuttle.

    hi nick yes thanks i know that we have to make our way from the airport to where we are to meet with contiki as i am staying at the pacific park hotel so i guess we just meet out the front of the building on the day the tour is to start, do you know what time we are to be leaving. are you on this tour. susie
