What you'll do

I will pick you up outside the Canterbury Museum. First we will do a driving tour of the city, this will include commentary while pointing out places of interest. We will stop for some photos and a have little time to explore at certain points along the way. These may include the terrace, Earthquake damaged Churches, New Regent Street and Riverside market. From the center of city we will travel towards Sumner Beach for free time / walking / photographs. Sumner beach is regarded as Christchurch's best beach and is popular with locals and surfers. Dip your toes in the water if you want or if you are really keen go for a swim. You might also want to grab an Utopia ice cream! Delicious!! From Sumner we will travel up onto the port hills. Enjoy amazing views of the southern alps, The pacific ocean and above the city. Enjoy a hot cup of tea, chocolate or coffee and have a real chance to chat with me, Scotty, a Christchurch and Canterbury local. After this we will return back to Christchurch to complete the tour

Where you'll be

The Central Business District of Christchurch is a hive of activity after the 2011 earthquake. So many new spaces, artwork and shops. Lots of history also Sumner beach is a great place to take photos, walk on the beach and enjoy your evening, Famous for its good surf and cool sea side village. Our sunset point is high above the Sumner township on the port hills. This is a great spot to watch the sun go down and stargaze
