Our short visit to Christchurch proved to be a very eventful and productive experience when we jumped on the Grand Tour. Starting from pickup at our accommodation in town, we went around in a bus to the punting, gardens tour, gondola and the tram, riding along with an extensive commentary given by our driver Dave, an ex-teacher with a relaxed demeanour. Along the way to each activity, we he explained the history and the constantly changing landscape of the city, as well as the suburbs out towards the coast. Although lunch is not supplied on the tour, the driver recommended us to grab some lunch from the café at the top of the gondola, which proved to be delicious and was supplemented with a great view of the harbour and the city. We were also pleasantly surprised with being supplied with bottled water and a free key ring gift to remind us of our great experiences of the journey.
Thank you for taking the time to post your review. We're pleased that you enjoyed the tour and commentary as well as the visits to our attractions. I will pass on your comments about the tour to your driver Dave as well as to the cafe staff at the Gondola. Thank you for choosing to take our Grand Tour!
