 "AMAZING - Must Do!!!!

This was without a doubt the highlight of our trip, so much that we went twice on our two day visit to Akaroa.
Lydia our guide was brilliant and we learnt so much about these adorable alpacas that are extremely well cared for and loved. As soon as we arrived, we knew we wouldn’t want to leave. We will always treasure the special time we spent cuddling , feeding and patting the beautiful alpacas and learning about their funny personalities. They are truly amazing and the babies so gorgeous, the fantastic views are an added bonus.
If we could have taken a couple of alpacas home we would have but managed to take home some beautiful knitwear from the well stocked shop instead. We will be back and already planning our next trip just to visit you, this time bringing more family.
Big thank you Lydia, for welcoming us and making this memorable visit an experience we’ll never forget :-)"
