Unforgettable experience

Even though there were linger driving periods troughout the trip the destinations were gorgeous and one of the most beautiful places I ever visited. Our guide had lots of stories to tell about the regions and landmarks. Very pleasant driving and guiding over the course of the day! I’d 100% do it again!

Amazing views, nice people and well organised tour

Highly recommended to go and see the best of the best around the top of the South Island with Karin and her Tasman Tours. Clean and comfortable van/mini bus. Very gentle rides. Well explained local history and geography. The cafe in Takaka that Karin recommended offers the best bakeries/pies that you can't normally find in busy cities. Light to medium exercise level (only a couple of 20 minute walks). Overall, it was an unforgettable tour. I'll definitely recommend my friends and colleagues to join Karin's tours. Thanks Karin for making my Nelson trip much much better than I expected. Ta.
