SIT, RIDE & RELAX AROUND CHRISTCHURCH TOUR
Full or Half-Day Tour
Available All Year Round
Mix and match a range of activities in and around the Christchurch city area.
Drive a short distance to shop at "The Tannery". Be guided to shop where the locals go for quality and bargains all at once.
For those with a quality budget, I will take you out to the Possum, Merino, wool factory shop, gorgeous and good value garments, then visit the shop out the back for fabulous garments at a better price. You just have to know where to go.
Explore the only native protected forest at Riccarton Bush. This is where the first successful Dean brothers made a home in Christchurch, the bush has never changed from the 1800's and remains the same to this day. This is a flat, easy 20-minute walk in the spectacular untouched native forest. The birdsong is beautiful and has a boardwalk so you can walk in your street shoes.
Drive through the "Red Zone", where the earthquake has decimated residential areas. I'll take you out to Brighten Beach, the pier, and beach fronts.
View the earthworks to stabilise cliffs on the way to Sumner Beach. Take a walk along the Esplanade in Sumner for those who want to stretch their legs.
Return to the city along the Port Hills Summit Road for views of the Pacific Ocean and the Southern Alps. I pack a lot into this tour, so sit, ride and just relax.

Vicky met us at our hotel and took us on a tour of the surrounding areas in Christchurch. She is obviously someone who has extensive local knowledge and who loves her city very much.
