Discover the beautiful Garden City - Christchurch - with this fantastic Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour. Hop aboard our lovely double-decker and feast your eyes on this pretty city as your guide regales you with an immersive live commentary, filling you in on all the fascinating history, tales and anecdotes of Christchurch.

Our buses are a lovely way to travel through the city at your own pace, with stops covering the major attractions in the city and taking away all your transportation hassles. Your Hop-On Hop-Off tickets are valid for 24 hours or 48 hours, depending on the validity you choose.

There are two routes available. The Central (Red) Tour gives you a charming introduction of the city, taking you to all the major attractions in the city. The Discover (Blue) Tour circumnavigates the outer suburbs and is operated on a classic London closed roof double-decker bus or a small single coach. 

You can take your pick from either of the two or go big and get yourself a COMBO Ticket that gives you access to both the routes while saving up on buying individual tickets (buy a 48 hours combo ticket and you get free entry to Quake Museum).
