Christchurch City, the Botanic Gardens, lunch and chocolate tastings.
Having picked you up we drive to Christchurch and by the city’s centre. Here you can assess the progress of the rebuild following the 2010/2011 earthquakes. We will discuss the reasons for the event, its impact and the exciting plans for the future. We will also delve into the history of city and explore the beautiful Botanic Gardens where you will discover why New Zealand’s flora and fauna is unique. Stops will be made at Cathedral Square, the River precinct, the Transitional Cathedral (Cardboard Cathedral) and the Tannery shopping precinct. Lunch will be taken in a local cafe or restaurant
During the day we will head to the Port Hills which overlook Christchurch and present stunning views of the city, Canterbury Plains, Lyttelton Harbour and the distant Southern Alps. Before we return you to your accommodation we visit ‘She Chocolate’ a chocolatire cafe. Here we hope to tempt you with the pleasures of ‘The Food of the Gods’ before wishing you farewell.
Please note the order of activities will be dependent of pick up/drop off points and weather
