Meet your guide and small group of no more than 15 people either at your central Christchurch hotel or outside Christchurch i-site to begin your walking tour of the city. As you set out to explore the Central Business District, learn more about the damage it sustained during the devastating earthquakes of 2010 and 2011, and discover the re-building work, new precincts and community projects that form part of the vision for a 21st-century Christchurch.
Along the way, your guide will point out innovative architectural works such as the Transitional Cardboard Cathedral and the Re:START Shipping Container Mall, and discuss creative gap-filler sites like the Sound Garden or Dance-O-Matt that have sprung up to fill the city’s empty spaces.
Stroll around the picturesque parks of the Commons and along the Avon riverside, pause to take photos of landmarks such as the Christchurch Arts Centre, and get a taste of local life in Cathedral Square. Along the way, take the time to chat with your guide and pick up plenty of recommendations for where to eat, drink or party in the city.
After two hours exploring the city, your tour ends in central Christchurch.
