Christchurch Scenic Coach Day Tours | Christchurch Grand Tour

Board the Grand Tour luxury coach for a guided tour of the best things to do in Christchurch.

Punting on the Avon has been one of Christchurch's iconic attractions since 1986. Come aboard a classic punt at the historic Antigua Boatshed Landing and an Edwardian punter will guide you quietly past trailing willows, woodlands and the leafy banks of the Botanic Gardens.

The Christchurch Botanic Gardens were established in 1863, and host the finest collection of exotic and indigenous plants to be found anywhere in New Zealand. Join the "Caterpillar" shuttle to ride around the gardens in comfort and discover their natural beauty, history and culture.

Next is the Christchurch Gondola which whisks you nearly a kilometre to the Crater Rim of the Port Hills. Experience the Time Tunnel, a dramatic reconstruction of the history of the Port Hills and Christchurch. Reinvigorate yourself with a snack at the Red Rock Cafe, and browse what is on offer in the shop (own expense).

Visit the delightful seaside village of Sumner with its boutique shops, cafes and restaurants situated across from the beach. En route we pass by the "earthquake artwork", created by shipping containers designed to strengthen the seaside hill suburbs.

You will be dropped to one of the Christchurch Tram stops where you will be given a ticket to explore the city centre on the trams at your leisure. You can also get on and off the trams at any of the seven stops to visit nearby attractions such as New Regent Street, the Transitional "Cardboard" Cathedral, and Re:START container mall to see these developments breathing new life into the centre of town.

We thoroughly enjoyed the whole Grand Tour which was conducted by Barry (past local council member). Barry was extremely professional, knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and a great ambassador for the company. We were all looked after so well that we weren't left wondering what was happening next. Would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone.
