Question

Sweet as South, Departing Christchurch, 27th Dec

LukeCarruthers

Just thought id see if anyone here will be on the "Sweet As South" tour departing Christchurch on the 27th December 2012. I've booked already, getting pretty keen, NYE in Queens Town should be awesome to say the least!

This tour departs and returns to Christchurch, I think there is a couple of different ones to avoid confusion.

Cheers, Luke

    Hi Tegan.

    I chose this tour because I can fly into Christchurch, which makes life easy. I also have some family in NZ and will be visiting wellington with them!

    I was looking for something pretty action packed and thought this tour looked the best, 9 days which are pretty full on with heaps of different and unique things to do throughout the tour (I imagine these are offered in the tour you suggested also)

    And new years eve in Queens Town, that will be crazy to say the least!… well i hope so!

    Hey!I was going to fly out of Sydney on Boxing day, but finding it hard to get a direct flight to Christchurch at a normal time!! lol so thought id just fly into Wellington!! I havent booked yet, so it could change! How long are you heading there for? Yeh NY in Queenstown – sounds awesome!! :)

  • 4 Sep 2012 LukeCarruthers said

    LukeCarruthers

    Yeah the flights are pretty average on boxing day, I fly Adelaide – Sydney, Sydney – Auckland , Auckland – Christchurch.

    I will be there for a little over 3 weeks, which will be pretty good, Im also doing the contiki before and after nights accommodation, so that adds an extra 2 nights to the tour with the people you are traveling with.

    After the contiki Im flying up to Auckland to travel around the north island for 10 days.

    I really want the trip to be a big party with lots of adventures, traveling alone should be interesting!

    Tegan

    They sure are. I have found one (little pricey..) I think i will book it!! Gosh you go on a trip just to get there!!
    3 weeks – awesome :) I will need to book the accomodation before and after for 2 nights each too, im going to be flighing out of Christchurch on the 9 Jan.
    Im keen for a big party too!! Have you done contiki before!? You will be fine travelling alone! Im sure there will be heaps of us solo.

    LukeCarruthers

    Yeah its a bit of a stint on a plane for sure, It doesn’t bother me that much im use to it!

    I Haven’t done a contiki before, nor traveled alone, so it should be a pretty good experience! Yeah a few of my friends have done europe solo and loved it, that’s next on the list for sure!

    Can’t wait for Bungee jumping, sky diving, and white water rafting! hopefully ill get to do those 3 things in Queens Town!

    How old are you? I’m 21!

  • 4 Sep 2012 Tegan said

    Tegan

    It will be a great experience! I did europe solo and it was awesome! – you really should do it
    The sports are going to be fun. Not to sure if i could bungee though!! ahhh.. we will see!
    Im 23! Where else have you travelled?

  • 4 Sep 2012 LukeCarruthers said

    LukeCarruthers

    Hey Luke,
    I’m doing the Kiwiana Panorama which starts the same day as yours so i’m pretty sure we’ll be on the same bus as our tours are identical. NYE in Queenstown should be unreal and good choice going on Contiki when travelling by yourself.
    Cheers
