We start from the heart of Christchurch, the Cathedral Square where you can see the earthquake damaged Christchurch Cathedral. Then we visit some iconic Gothic Revival buildings include the Canterbury Museum, the Christ's college and the Christchurch Arts Centre. Next to the museum are the Botanic Gardens and Hagley Park where you can see a wide range of exotic and local plants. We will visit the famous Re:Start, a temporary mall built from shipping containers where you can find a variety of quality retailers.

After lunch, we visit some of these places, depends on the time and your preferences. The Port Hills is a great location to see the panoramic view of Christchurch and the Southern Alps.
