  1. A wonderful heart warming experience. I had the pleasure of spending the morning with Cate’s lovely husband who is very passionate about their city “Christchurch” He told me all about the earthquake and how the city is rebuilding. He pointed out all the little details that only a local could know and took me to so many interesting places. It has made me want to come back again! Go ahead and book this tour you will not be disappointed. Kerre - Australia

    A wonderful heart warming experience.

  2. 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! Michael - Germany

    A must do in Christchurch

  3. Absolutely fantastic! We had such a great time with Riwai. He was super knowledgeable about the history and current events in Christchurch and spent extra time with us answering questions over lunch, coffee and excellent gelato. We learned more from our morning walk with Riwai than we would have after spending a week in Christchurch. Definitely the best way to start your stay in Christchurch. Highly recommended!

    Absolutely Fantastic!

  4. This was an excellent introduction to Christchurch. We arranged a tour for our first morning in Christchurch and I’m so glad we did! We have so many options for our days and we appreciate the city so my more. Our guide Riwai had an intimate knowledge of the city and its history and was so easy to talk to that even our teen was drawn into conversation. After the tour, we decided to continue our enjoyment of the downtown. Imagine when we mentioned we were going to Christchurch in other places in New Zealand and the natives suggested we skip it. I think those folks should take the tour and learn more about the heroic effort Christchurch has made and is still making to rebuild and reimagine itself. It might be our favorite city now because it is so spunky. Definitely do this tour if you can Mary - USA

    Excellent Introduction to Christchurch

  5. Recommend to get the most out of this, do this tour right when you get to Christchurch to get your bearings and lay of the city. Riwai was our host for this tour and he was absolutely wonderful. Can’t say enough good things about this walking tour. Christchurch is a super walkable city, but having Riwai show us around provided a unique perspective on the city and see it through the eyes of a local and what they notice and appreciate/enjoy. Riwai was even willing to go take more time than advertised to show us more since the group wasn’t in a rush and there was more to see and it was super obvious that he enjoys his city and sharing it with others.
