WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

If you do have some spare time in Christchurch, the tour would be highly recommended. Our guide (Riwai) whom did an amazing job in transferring his passion for the city and the Maori to us was the perfect guide. We learned a lot about the history of the city and New Zealand and got plenty of ideas on how to spend our time after the tour. Definitely worth it!
