Welcome to Discover Christchurch

We are the home to Christchurch's best day tour including Christchurch's leading attractions all in one day.  Join us on our Discover Christchurch Tour, selected departures are available throughout the year. 

Christchurch is the most english city in the world outside of the United Kingdom, it has a rich anglican history and home to just under 1300 parks, gardens, reserves and green spaces allowing the city to be known as "The Garden City". The city's population is just under 500,000 which includes a large population in the green belt / hinterland of the city. 

The 2010 and 2011 earthquakes devastated the city and many surrounding centres across the South Island. As heartbreaking as these series of events were it has given Christchurch a golden opportunity to rebuild a new city, a new atmosphere and a safe, strong and modern city centre. 

Our tour showcases the best of Christchurch and its favourite activities all in a single day. 

What to expect

We start by collecting you from your accommodation in Christchurch or from Lyttelton if you are arriving off a cruise ship or even at Christchurch Airport (charges may apply) before a punt on the River Avon. This is a wonderful relaxing way to take in the local sights. We will take you to connect with the historic Christchurch Tramways for a ride around the city loop to High Street where we will pop into Little High Eatery for a food tasting. Here you will be able to taste a variety of different foods under the one roof. After the tasting we will go for a drive beyond the central city to New Brighton, Sumner and other places of interest for a good tour of the city. We will make our way over the hills to Lyttleton before heading back into the city via a stop at the Christchurch Gondola for a ride to the top of the hill, taking in the stunning views of Christchurch City and Banks Peninsula. We change the tour around on a day to day basis if the weather isn't on our side.
