Christchurch experienced a devastating earthquake in 2010 which closed the city for 2 years and forced hundreds of homeowners to sell their property back to the government to minimize future flooding and damage. The town is just starting to get back to normal but there is still a lot of work to rebuild the city back to its former glory.

There tour of the city shows the devastation from the 2010 earthquake and how the city is starting to come back to life.

Kia ora. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review it's very much appreciated. It sounds like you really enjoyed your tour. I just can't understand why you gave it a rating of average when others have rated it highly?

The Tour driver was fantastic, I think when its a rainy day you should cancel. We did not see much of Christchurch do to bad weather. Tour guide attempted everything.

This unfortunately is a no win situation. You will see from the reviews for the same day many customers have provided 5 star reviews for the same tour. If we had of cancelled due to the weather it is certain we would have received as many 1 star reviews for cancelling.

Our guide Sally was lovely and admiited straight off she was relatively new. She did not need to say that as her own personal insights were brilliant and not from the tour book. In fact given the events of 2011, her words gave a realistic account of what happened. A few turns around the CBD then to the gardens followed by a trip through the burbs and up the hill to the Takahe look out. A great view. Then up and over the top and down to Lyttelton round the coast to Sumner and the back to town. Would recommend it. Back in CBD on time. Great to do if only in town for a few days as we were. Sally is a real character.

My friends bought this for me as a birthday present while I was in Christchurch and it was a lovely day out. Our driver was Ron who was friendly, informative and a very good driver of a small coach. We visited Cashmere, Beckenham, Sydenham, the port of Lyttleton, Sumner and then on to the Antarctic Center. Even though I had been in Christchurch for a week on my own, I still saw lots of sights I hadn't visited and the Antarctic Center was amazing. We were picked up from our hotel and dropped back again at the end and it was a great day out. Highly recommended.
