Enjoy a fun and informative Christchurch City tour on-board our classic 1960's London double decker buses. First, take a one hour highlights tour of the 'must see' central city attractions aboard the open-top double-decker bus. Our local drivers provide an entertaining and informative commentary along the route highlighting various points of interest including the Arts Centre, Hagley Park and Botanical gardens, Cathedral Square, Re:Start Container Mall, New Regent Street, Margaret Mahy playground and much more. Learn about the history of Christchurch including the vision to rebuild and restore the city following the 2011 earthquake. Once your central city tour is completed you then board a closed-top double decker bus and spend 2 hours exploring the outer suburbs of Christchurch. We visit the spectacular Mona Vale Gardens and then journey up the Port Hills to enjoy incredible views of the city, mountains and ocean. Next we take a scenic drive out to the seaside village of Sumner and take time to enjoy an ice-cream or walk along the beach before returning to the city.
