We had a free day in Christchurch and took this great tour. Three main attractions: wonderful guided tour of beautiful botanical garden fun gondola ride and beautiful views and a very relaxing punting on the Avon river. Highly recommended.
The food was beyond perfect, the staff attentive and friendly.
Fabulous way to see the highlights in Christchurch. We went punting on the Avon, toured the botanical gardens with a guide, rode the gondola for views of the city and then had the ability to hop on and off the tram for anything else we wanted to see. It was the perfect way to tour the area.
Fantastic trip! Barry was very helpful and had so much information about this beautiful city. Well worth the price! A must for every visitor to Christchurch. Once you've done the tour, it's easier to go exploring on your own, now that the lay of the land is familiar.
This tour was fantastic, great overview of the city, Our driver was great, there was enough time spent at each place and we were not rushed.
A must if you are in Christchurch ! The punting on the Avon was so relaxing, the Botanical Gardens beautiful, and the ride up in the gondola was breathtaking for it's view's of both Christchurch and the Pacific Ocean. The restaurant up on top was also very good.
This is a brilliant way to see the highlights of Christchurch. Tom our guide and the driver of the bus is caring and informative...we felt we had made a friend. Hard to ay what the highlight was...maybe Tom's commentary! :
We were the only two passengers on the hop-on hop-off. What a treat! Our driver sorry cant remember his name shared lots of interesting stories and was lots of fun. The tour of the Botanic Gardens on the caterpillar bus was excellent. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions about the beautiful gardens, trees, flowers and history of the place. The punting on the Avon experience is certainly unique. My sunglasses fell into the river while I was trying to take a picture and our punter, Rafael, was kind enough to stop the tour to help us look for them. We did not find them, but that gesture speaks for itself. We visited beautiful Sumner beach wish we had had more time there, felt a bit rushed and then headed up for a ride up the Gondola. Breathtaking!!
If you are not staying long in Christchurch sorry for you and want to see what the city has to offer, this is the best tour you can do.
The Gide we had was a loverly local full of knowledge. This was one of our highlights to our stay in Christhurch. Everything was first class and very enjoyable
Easy way to get around Christchurch. We loved Punting on the Avon and the Botanic Gardens were beautiful. The sights from the Gondola are amazing!
Great day's experience!. Tom our very hospitable, knowledgeable guide showed us many of Christchurch's wonderful sights. Loved the punt ride on the Avon River, the tour of the Botanical Gardens with David was so spectacular with the diversity of plant life within the gardens, the tour of Christchurch's earthquake devastation, Sumner Bay and the excellent gondola ride to the peaks above Christchurch. Amazing! To top it off we could ride the Christchurch trams when we arrived back in the city. Greta tour to get to know Christchurch.
This tour is fantastic. I felt we covered every aspect of the city in a very short amount of time. We were the only ones who booked the tour that day which meant having a private guide. Raj was super nice
Christchurch is re:starting now. We can see the energy of people who try to rebuild there.
This was a great trip. It just ended up being our party of 4 which was fantastic. We skipped the Botanic Gardens and opted for more time at the top of the mountain. The punting boat ride was excellent. Highly recommend this tour :
Great tour, its worth while if you want to see Christchurch and surrounds.
It was fantastic. Thank you to our driver and guide Barry. He is a wealth of information with a terrific sense of humour. The tour enables the tourist to see the diversity of Christchurch and surrounds. Great value for money. Memorable.
Wonderful way to see Christchurch. Recommend it to everyone. Highlight was the magnificent botanical gardens. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly and very experienced. The weather was not great but we were undercover most of the time.
This was the best city tour I have ever been on the driver Reg was excellent and kept his cool mid adversity
Super way to see Christchurch. Puntng on the Avov, caterpillar tour through the gardens and a gondalar ride to a gloreous view with a fiendly knowledgable guide. Great value
An excellent way to see highlights of Christchurch. The gardens are a must. Wish I had more time to explore. The punting on the Avon was a fun excursion--very touristy but still fun. The gondola was broken down when we got there--a first for our driver. He then prompted to find some other touring around there for us to do while waiting for the gondola to reopen--which it did not. Disappointing. The company however did refund the gondola portion right away. The hop-on hop-off tram was also a fun way to tour some of the inner city sites. Very easy and informative.
Best way to see Christchurch. Punting on the Avon was so much fun, the Botanic Gardens tour was wonderful, and the hop-on hop-off tram was excellent.
Really enjoyed this introduction to Christchurch and New Zealand.
