Christchurch Grand Tour

See the best Christchurch has to offer - beautiful parks & gardens, quaint seaside villages and amazing views of Christchurch and the surrounding area. Your guide will also explain the plans for the re-juvenation of the city following the major earthquakes of 2010 & 2011.

Your tour includes the following attractions:

Punting on the Avon: Refined, relaxing & romantic – punting on the beautiful Avon River is an iconic Christchurch attraction not to be missed. The waters of the Avon ripple by as you sit back on deep cushioned seats in a classic punt while your Edwardian-dressed punter guides you quietly on a 30 minute ride past trailing willows, woodlands, leafy banks and the sights of the garden city of Christchurch.

Botanic Gardens: The Christchurch Botanic Gardens were established in 1863, and host without a doubt the finest collection of exotic and indigenous plants to be found anywhere in New Zealand. While on our ‘Caterpillar’ shuttle discover the natural beauty, history and culture of this central city oasis while at the same time being taken around the gardens in any weather in comfort and style.

Christchurch Gondola: The Christchurch Gondola whisks you into the air nearly a kilometre to the Crater Rim of the Port Hills. Experience the Time Tunnel, a dramatic reconstruction of the history of the Port Hills and Christchurch. Revive your spirits with a snack at the new Red Rock Cafe, and browse what is on offer in the shop.

Christchurch Tram: Enjoy a journey in style through the changing face of Christchurch’s city centre on board our beautifully restored heritage Trams, one of Christchurch’s leading attractions.Cathedral Junction, the Avon River, Gothic-style Arts Centre, the Canterbury Museum and New Regent Street are just some of sights to be seen from the comfort of your Tram, or accessed from the 17 stops en route.
