Review by Jane on 13th August, 2011
5 stars "An excellent reference to carry when travelling round NZ!"

A great guide and an excellent reference to carry when travelling. Not sure if I agree with absoloutely all his choices (and there's few he's left out that I personally would have included), but we're working our way through them!

5 stars "Great if you like unusual and interesting accommodation"

A fascinating dip into history with informative descriptions, very good photos, and useful facts on the type of accommodation and approximate costs of food.

I would never of even thought of buying this book or even known that it existed, but I spotted it on the daily deals and it was perfect for our pops :) MIGHTY APE is a wealth of great gift ideas.

An informative and informal guide to 150 of the most interesting pubs in New Zealand, divided into North and South islands. A companion book to the successful Vineyard Visits, the book has the same design and organization, providing location and pricing guidelines as well as potted histories of the people, places and personalities associated with each of the featured pubs.

Competition for selection was fierce, and some tough calls had to be made, but the 150 featured pubs have all been personally checked out by the authors. These are their selections as the best places to stop for a drink, a meal or an interesting stop over for the responsible traveler. From pubs whose histories go back to the days of the goldfields to those which have played important roles in their local communities, the characters and the ratbags are examined and the features that make each one unique are listed.

About the Author:

Peter Janssen, who lives in Auckland is developing a solid reputation as the expert on domestic travel within New Zealand, this is his second book for HarperCollins. Steve Reid lives in Blenheim, and is a Zephyr and swap meet enthusiast who has traveled extensively in the South Island.
