Christchurch has been through so much with the devastating earthquakes the last few years, this was a really good way to and appreciate the rebirth of this beautiful city.
The open top was good. Good explanations about the town on how they have recovered from the earthquakes from 4 years ago. On the cover bed bus, I was the only passenger on it so was quite personal when I was speaking to Carl and getting explanations
So glade we did this tour, the Double Decker buses were great with a wonderful view, well worth the money
Unfortunately I can't remember the name of the driver but was excellent. We had a very insightful commentary on where Christchurch is at at the moment and it brought out al sorts of emotions and ideas. The driver did an excellent job showing us the inter city and what is happening etc. As my father in law and I were the only ones on the bus for the second part, we were taken by request, to Sumner, Redcliffs, stopped for a cuppa and the driver then took us up some hills. We had frequent stops to view the city and surrounds and to see, first hand the devastatin that Canterbury has suffered. We had lots explained. A wonderful Christchurch experience. My thoughts are that the council/government should get on with the housing and the sports fields and cathedral,can wait!!!!!!!!
gorgeous day for riding on the open upper deck.
very interesting seeing what still has to be done nearly 4 years after the first quake to make the city whole again!
Great Experience. An open air trip through the city was great. It was great to see how they are rebuilding. Well Done!! Following that a closed tour to the outskirts and seaside towns then up the mountain for spectacular views. Returning to the city on time. Our guide was informative as well as entertaining.
The tour was great and the commentary on both coaches was very good we felt as if we were with old friends and were especially grateful to be dropped off at our accommodation - a nice very much appreciated end to our tour.
A very informative tour of city centre, with a very compelling story. We'll done.
A great way of seeing the sites of Christchurch at a reasonable cost.
The reconstruction tour was both informative and heartwarming.
The first hour seeing the city was well worth my time, and quite insightful regarding the impact of the earthquakes on Christchurch. The second part of the trip - 2 hours out into the countryside - was not at all worth the extra time and cost.
Despite the destruction of the city by the 2011 earthquake, the guide made the tour iinteresting.
The tour lasted for less than one hour. Too expensive for what you get to see. We basically drove up and down about 10 square blocks looking at rubble. Id drop this from your list of tours.
