Milford Sound cruising or overland tour?

Recommended Posts

Actually, when I said that we don't go to Akaroa I wasn't entirely correct. The port is Lyttelton, from which evidently there are excursions to Akaroa instead of going into Christchurch. If you could only see Akaroa or Christchurch, taking into account that there's a lot of driving time to get to Akaroa, which would you choose?

Akaroa is nice, I've been there three times, however there is lots to see in Christchurch. Traveling to Akaroa and back takes a big chunk of time out your day.

Agreed, the area around Akaroa is pretty but Christchurch has more interest for me as well.
