Full description
Hop aboard and prepare to take Christchurch head on! With an eclectic mix of new and old, Christchurch is truly a city like no other. Take in the historic sights from the top deck of a double decker coach and hop-on and hop-off completely at your leisure.

The central tour red loop is operated on an open top double decker coach and is a one hour long tour, or you can choose to spend all day hopping on and off at the different stops along the way. On this tour, see how the earthquakes have completely changed the Christchurch central city landscape and see and learn about the exciting rebuild, which is now well underway.

The discover tour blue loop is a two hour tour operated on a classic London closed roof double decker coach. This tour travels into the ‘red zone’ which is a residential area where more than 6000 homes were demolished after the earthquakes.

Your guide will talk about the many exciting opportunities that are being explored to redevelop this area. The tour then heads out to the beautiful seaside area of Sumner where you will have time to enjoy an ice cream on the beach, before heading to the Port Hills to enjoy breathtaking views over the city, Canterbury plains and out to the Southern Alps.

Prepare to explore a truly stunning city with both an epic and recent history which will leave you feeling completely inspired.
