We booked online a sightseeing tour of Christchurch, departing from our cruise ship in Akaroa.
We cannot recommend this company at all:
- We wanted to see Christchurch. The bus drove into Christchurch, left us for 30 minutes by the botanical gardens for toilet-needs. Then it drove through downtown without any possibilities to get out of the bus and drove straight to a beach, where we had to stay for 90 minutes with nothing to do. Coming from a cruise, nobody was interested to eat, but everybody wanted to visit the town.
- We paid 85 $ in advance via internet, noticing that the same tour was sold for 50 $ at the shore.
- We booked 4 tickets, but our son was ill and remained on board. The company didn't pay back anything, but sold all the tickets to other people, including the seat of our son.
Good points: the driver was really good (he was hired for the day from another company) and explained us a lot about Christchurch and the earthquake. He also apologized many times for the tour and for the fact that we didn't have any time in Christchurch, but he had to do what the boss wanted.
