“Best tour for the money”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

The tour is billed as the best luxury tour in Christchurch, and it lived up to that billing. The driver was an excellent commentator about the city, all the issues it has faced since the earthquakes, as well as the extraordinary venues available to us. From punting on the Avon, the great tour of the botanical garden, and the gondola ride, it was a marvelous day's excursion. Yes, the food was expensive at the top, but the food is expensive everywhere in NZ. However, the lunch was one of the best we experienced during our stay.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

The best and the most value for money tour package for Christchurch. Our tour guide Mr. David as just awesome. He was very informative, sweet and a great person. I and my wife loved it. It was our last day in New Zealand and we were able to make the most of it. I would recommend everyone visiting Christchurch to take the Grand Tour.

Thanks alot guys and please keep it up.

“great tour around chch”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

Great comentary by our driver, punting very relaxing, as was the botanicial garden tour. Nuce to see the city rebuilding on the drive around the city. The gondola ride affords great views of the city and Lyttleton.one downside is the expensive café at the top of the gondola ride, plus the number of people up there made it a bit of a crush for time. Tram ride was short as most of the tram tracks are unable to be used because of the rebuilding and tearing down. Glad we started at the muesum as it gave us time to see the street art display. a great day out

Thank you for reviewing your time on the Grand Tour. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the commentary and the visits our attractions along the way. I will pass on your comments to the cafe staff at the Gondola: we are planning to identify Grand Tour passengers to the cafe staff so their orders can be sped up, as it can often be very busy at the cafe.The street art currently on display around the city does look great, and is a nice way to add some more colour into the city! Thank you for taking the Grand Tour.

“Must do tour”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

Had a lovely day using the grand tour in Christchurch seeing all the attractions from the comfort of air conditioned bus. Driver was very friendly and informative. Great value for money included punting, garden tour, gondola and tram ride. We got a gift package at the end which topped it off, great experience.
