I took this walk this afternoon with guide Josie, and with an NZ couple. It was nicely paced. Josie was obviously a proud local who loves showing visitors around her city. The results of the 2011 earthquake were naturally 'centre stage' on the walk. What we saw in just over 2.5 hours was remarkable. Had I not done the walk, I would have missed out on a lot in my limited stay in the city.
By the way, the tour cost is $20, not $15 as stated in some (outdated) brochures in circulation. Well worth the price.

Thank sifr

Many thanks for your review. We take great pride in showing off our city and love to hear from satisfied customers.
Sorry about the price error in a third party listing. That's a constant challenge we work hard on.

I had the pleasure of spending nearly 3 hours walking with Murray and learning about architecture in Christchurch. We saw examples of different styles from the 19th century, the evolution of architectural styles and the post-earthquake construction. I have been on a few architecture walks in different cities and this one was really fantastic!! Murray's knowledge of architecture, history and culture of Christchurch was deep, and his passion to share it was obvious. I'd happily do this tour again. So much to see!

Thank Alex K

Bruce showed us a good part of the city. We were the only ones (2) and enjoyed the fact, that we could ask questions any time and adjust our tour to our interests. The fact that we could stop, take pictures and have it personalized was so much nicer than a bus tour. We are sure he went over the time limit, too!

Only one other couple on our tour.

Frank went over and above anything we might have expected. He shared his love of Christchurch while listening carefully to the personal interests of each person on the tour.

He was extremely generous with his time and ensured that we could go at a comfortable pace and not worry about the clock.

We highly recommend this tour and hope everyone is lucky enough to have Frank as their guide.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed an informative guided walking tour with Ellen Paynter. She was so lovely, knowledgeable and energetic. We learned a lot about this interesting City, the challenges it faced and the driving force forward to a brighter future.
