What You Can Expect

Christchurch Sightseeing Tour by Classic Double-Decker Bus

Christchurch Sightseeing Tour by Classic Double-Decker Bus

You’re picked up in central Christchurch, where you’ll take a seat on a traditional red Routemaster before departing the city center for its outskirts on a second vehicle.

Throughout the 1-hour city tour, hear live narration on board an open-top London-style double-decker bus that provides optimal viewing of the city sights. Your driver-guide points out key attractions such as Hagley Park, the Bridge of Remembrance and New Regent Street, and details the city's history, including recovery after the 2011 earthquake that devastated much of New Zealand’s second most populous city.

Afterward, board a closed-top vintage double-decker bus for a 2-hour tour of the greater Christchurch area. Travel to the Sumner seaside, stopping for free time on the beach with views of the spectacular Southern Alps. Enjoy more vistas of the Canterbury Plains at the Port Hills, then make a final stop for a stroll around the lovely landscapes of Mona Vale Gardens, before returning to the city center where your tour ends.
