Informative and beautiful

The 2 guides were awesome. I really liked the second part where it was for 2 hours and we went to the overlook of the city and then the beach. Andre had lots of good information and was knowledgeable in many different things. He also answered any questions we had and made some recommendations about other activities to do and which restaurants and coffee shops he thought were best. I would highly recommend this for anyone who wants to get a view of the city and the area around it.

On a rainy day, LOL

Finally had the opportunity to ride in an open air double decker bus. Although it was a cloudy, drizzle day, the bus driver wipe off the seats on the upper deck and a number of us sat up there. Although it did get a little windy and chilly after while you had a much better view of the sites in Christchurch. The driver was very informative. Just keep in mind that if you do the 3 hour tour, that after the first hour you swap to an enclosed double decker bus. By the time we got to Sumner everyone was ready for a hot cup of coffee. Although I had an enjoyable time, it would be a much more enjoyable day if the sun was shining.

Beautiful way to see Christchurch!

If you're in Christchurch and short on time, I can't recommend this bus tour enough. It's a great way to see a lot, learn on the go, not kill your feet from too much walking, and get a taste of everything from a small coastal town to the rose gardens and shopping mall. There's a bit of everything about the city included, so you'll be happy no matter what floats your boat!
