One thing the Canterbury region does really well is tours. Walking tours, luxury car tours, even segway tours are just some of the ways to explore the Christchurch and the Canterbury region.
Christchurch Tours are the best way to see the city and the surrounding area, particularly post-earthquake. In the CBD, you can hop on a Segway and trundle around the city's attractions, parks and sights, as see up close how rebuilding work is going. There are numerous history, heritage and cultural tours that give a compact and fascinating overview of the city. Or hop on the tourist bus, to find your bearings and gain instant familiarity. Punting tours on the River Avon are always popular along with the iconic Christchurch Tram. Outside Christchurch, you could join an intimate guided tour that takes you around the coastal nature reserves of Kaikoura in the north, and the Banks Peninsula in the south. To the west, you could take part in an alpine and agriculture around Methven and Mt Hutt. Take a whole day to discover the beauty of the Waipara vineyards, Arthur's Pass, Akaroa and Hanmer Springs. If there are specific things you want to see, you can pay for bespoke trips to suit you.
