Clare was our guide and was not only charming but enthusiastic and informative during our trip. Fabulous way to see this city and hear about its past, especially the recent past. Pace was perfectly attuned to our small group, distance covered was surprising for the length of the tour and we seemed to cover loads of ground. Great afternoon all round. Try it!

Thank you for your comments Mary - Clare loved meeting you both and showing you around Christchurch by bike. I hope the rest of your trip went well and that it wasn't too chilly heading back into winter at home. Regards, Stephanie Fitts

My husband, 3.5 year old and I did a tour with tour guide Clare in August which we say was the highlight of our NZ trip (even better than the skiing).
We first saw Christchurch Bike Tours on the Australian travel show 'Getaway' in 2009 and had it on our list of things to do since then!
Clare was lovely and our little boy loved her!We were lucky to have a personalised tour since we were the only ones that morning.
It was a nice easy ride but we saw everything we wanted to and more- including the Cardboard Cathedral which was the highlight.
Our heart goes out to you Christchurch for what you have been through and we wish you all the best with all the wonderful things to come. We can't wait to do the tour again and recommend it to family and friends.

We were really lucky to be able to go for a bicycle tour around Christchurch, focusing on the impact of the 2011 earthquake and the progress made so far. I'm sorry I can't remember the name of our tour guide but she was so lovely and so interested in Christhurch's development that it was a wonderful experience! We had loads of pictures taken with the sculptures dotted around town and a very easy ride. A fantastic way to see more of Christchurch then you would ever get time to walking around.

We had family in from Tennessee and organized a trip to Christchurch. The bicycle trip we took was definitely the highlight. We booked it literally the night before and a tour was quickly set up for us, when one wasn't originally scheduled - which we definitely appreciated. Tour guide leader was top notch, and we saw and learned a LOT we never would have seen (or heard about) otherwise. Without a doubt, definitely a "must do" if you ever go to Christchurch.

I prebooked this tour by email before we left for our trip and was really happy with the ease in which everything was completed. Not having internet access until the day before we were due to ride, I was so impressed that I got a response back to my confirmation query on a Sunday.

Lucky for us we got a perfect autumn day, and the lovely Jacky as our guide. I loved, loved, loved the fact that Jacky gave us the choice to design our tour before we took off. It was really special to ride through Hagley Park and Riccarton House with the golden autumn leaves falling around us. We then went to the CBD and rode around the red zone before riding through the parts of town that had been rebuilt.

Our 2 hour ride turned into 2.5 hours and could have been longer if I didn't have to leave to catch a plane (how I'm regretting not booking for a day earlier now). The bikes were so comfortable, and Christchurch is so flat that this is a really easy and enjoyable ride. Also loved the baskets on every bike to store our gear as we were riding.

The ultimate compliment on how good this tour is comes from my 16 year old son. After protesting quite loudly beforehand that he didnt want to do this ride, he came away saying it was one of the best things we did on our trip.
