Adelaide
City Tour Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
We took an afternoon ship sponsored city sights tour, which in my opinion was good value for money at just $52. The tour took in much of the main attractions of both Adelaide and North Adelaide with a stop at the statue of Col Light's vision of the city. Many of Adelaide's old colonial buildings have thankfully been preserved. We then travelled to Mt Lofty and did some Koala spotting on the return journey. We felt that the tour guide was not all that great and was constantly being prompted by the driver. He also concentrated his commentary to the front seat passengers.

The cruise terminal in enclosed and also serves as the Tasmanian Ferry Terminal. The distance from the terminal to public transport and nearby shore facilities is about 500 metres. Allow extra time for public transport as the trams cannot cope with an immediate onslaught of cruisers.

Outstanding experience and the operator supplied a shuttle bus from the terminal to the station. A town tour was also offered at minimal cost after the train trip. The views were spectacular. A cafe operated on the train.

Port Rating: Not Rated
Tender port at Akaroa, 90 minutes from Christchurch. Akaroa should remain as a permanent port. Lovely little French village with lots of history and local tours of scenary and wildlife.
