Departure Location & Times

The tour of the city is thorough and informative of the Christchurch earthquake destruction, the guides explained with great detail the events that have unfolded since the disaster. It is a moving and emotional tour on an open top decker for roughly 45 minutes and 3 hours if you purchased the more expensive ticket which is roughly 90 dollars and goes right up into the hills over looking the plains and you go though the hills which have many destroyed houses. Well worth the trip! - Luke, Thailand
The bus is gorgeous older and charming. The bus driver could tell u every inch of the city. Would highly recommend.
This guided tour included history and up to date information in the rebuild and was enlightening and entertaining. The view from top of the doubledeckerbus was a great way to get your bearings in this revitalised city with so many historical sites mixing with amazing modern architecture. Thoroughly recommend!
