The perfect introduction to Christchurch Gardens, Wine and Heritage


This tour aims to give a personalized introduction to every thing that is Christchurch. No mater your arrival point you will visit the heritage area which includes the museum, botanical gardens and the Arts Centre.
Along the way we should be able to taste wine or visit a brewery, enjoy the views. The call is yours.
If you do have specific interests I can accommodate these, be they art, heritage, rugby, cricket, education, shopping or coffee. With a little warning I can ensure that you will have a day full of interesting activities.

Itinerary

As this tour is a private tour it can be individualized to meet guests needs. However you can be assured that the Heritage prescient with its gardens, museums, arts center and gallery's will be included as will the opportunity to visit a Canterbury Vineyard. If the collection point is Akaroa then the famous cheeses of Barry's Bay will be tasted and the countryside visited, coffee tasted (and Art Viewed) at the Little River Store and Kaituna Valley visited. If your collection point is Christchurch then Riccarton House or Deans Bush are on the itinerary as is Sumner Beach, the Port Hills and the Tannery. All visitors will have a chance to look how Christchurch is rebuilding after its devastating earthquake. With its quirky graffiti the City has become the home of some interesting street art.
