Nice way of seeing the Able Tasman National Park in one day. Coach not always punctual, but good service overall.

Loved the "at the door" pick up service from backpakers around Nelson. Typically laid-back and friendly Nelson style

Told us to wait in the wrong place, so we waited for an hour and a half for no reason. But OK from Motueka in to the National Park.
