Great tour guide. We were amazed at how much destruction there was in Christchurch after the earthquakes. They are rebuilding. We stopped for ice cream which was great, too. Highly recommend taking the full tour not just the downtown one

Amazing - I have lived in Christchurch most of my life yet I really enjoyed the city part of the tour including the walk through Mona Vale. I had Australian family with me who had never been to NZ before and we were really surprised when the bus went up Evans Pass Rd to the top, then came down through Mt Pleasant and St Andrew's Hill. The commentary was excellent but a little hard to hear above the noise of the engine.

A brilliant tour not only of Christchurch itself but also the surrounding areas in a lovely old London Routemaster RM bus. We went merrily up hills and down dales in the Bus, luckily they have put in a reinforced engine to the one we were on, as we certainly chugged up and down with the bus working very hard. Lovely commentaries both inside Christchurch on an open-topped bus and then afterwards changing buses to a closed-topped RM for the views around the bar and environs.
Be warned - Christchurch is still looking rather poorly after all the earthquake activity over the past few years. They are working hard to restore it, but there is plenty of work still to do and plenty to see and hear about on this brilliant tour.

If you are in Christchurch you have to do this tour. We ha not really appreciated how much of the city was destroyed 5 years ago. They are doing a great job rebuilding. If you go before next January make sure you visit the restart mall, you will see just how resilient people can be.

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

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.

Wish I could have taken it. We were on a cruise ship that docked in Akaroa, we did not know that Christchurch was 1 1/2 hours away. Busses run only in the morning from Akaroa so we missed out. Make sure to plan on that bus trip into Christchurch to catch the sightseeing tour. The company was great to work with after getting home.

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.

Is a cool tour. Wouldn't recommend the add-on trip to Sumner but the city tour is definitely worthwhile. Really interesting to see the earthquake damage still in the town.
