What you will visit:
Christchurch (by Hop-On Hop-Off double-decker bus)
All aboard the Hop-On Hop-Off bus, a fun and flexible way to see all the top sights of vibrant Christchurch. The largest city of the South Island, with a population of about 380,000, Christchurch is named after a college at the University of Oxford, England, although its reputation as a decidedly British city has changed recently as it wears its Kiwi pride with style. Situated around the River Avon, its beautiful Gothic architecture and blooming gardens were hit hard by the devastating 2011 earthquake, which leveled much of the city's infrastructure. But rising like a phoenix, Christchurch today is revitalized and growing and has turned much of the damaged areas into modern and beautiful outdoor public art galleries.
What you will see along the way:
Ride in style through the eclectic streets of Christchurch on a double-decker bus. Your loop takes in the city's historic and cultural sights and showcases the rebuilding that has strengthened the city since the 2011 earthquake. Insightful commentary accompanies your ride, and you are free to get off at a number of key attractions to explore independently. Key central city landmarks include the Earthquake Memorial Wall, Cathedral Square, Margaret Mahy Family Playground, Cardboard Cathedral, Mona Vale Gardens and much more.
