Full description
Take the unique opportunity to see the best of Christchurch and Akaroa on this shore excursion. You will begin by departing from Akaroa, before traveling through the Banks Peninsula and on to the city of Christchurch. Upon your arrival, there will be some time to explore the Botanical Gardens before commencing on a sightseeing tour of Christchurch City.

A tour of the city will highlight the various landmarks, as well as the damage and rebuild efforts from the 2011 earthquakes. You’ll then make a stop in the city center, which offers you some time for lunch (own expense) and to explore the city on foot.

After departing the city, you will head to the Sign of the Takahe on the Port Hills for some magnificent views of the Christchurch, Canterbury Plains and Southern Alps. Afterwards, you will return to Akaroa for a guided tour of the famous Giant’s House, complete with its beautiful mosaic sculptures and pristine gardens.
