Punting on the Avon

There is nothing more iconic than punting along the Avon River. Not only is this a truly refined and romantic activity but it is the most relaxing way of enjoying the sights around you. Relax and enjoy the comfort of the cushioned seats as your Punter, dressed in Edwardian attire, guides you along the rippling waters of the Avon River. This 30 minute ride takes you past woodlands, willows, leafy banks and various notable city sights.

Caterpillar Botanic Gardens Tour

The Botanic Gardens were established in 1863 and here you will find the most amazing collection of both indigenous and exotic plants found anywhere in the country. Enjoy the natural beauty of the gardens while learning about the history and culture along the way. Regardless of the weather, you will enjoy your tour in comfort and style.

Christchurch Gondola

The city’s Gondola is one of the biggest attractions of all. As you travel through the air, you will enjoy the amazing sights and views all the way to the Crater Rim of the Port Hills. Once at the summit, you can enjoy the Time Tunnel which takes you on a dramatic historic journey of the Port Hills and the city of Christchurch. Enjoy a snack at the Red Rock Café and don’t for get to browse around the shop too.

Christchurch Tram

We will take you to one of our Christchurch Tram stops and hand you a ticket with which you are free to board and explore the city at your leisure. You can get on and off as you please and our drivers will provide you with plenty of fun facts about the city and its landmarks.
