You will be collected from Akaroa and travel through the picturesque Banks Peninsula to Christchurch before heading north to visit a working sheep farm set in a tranquil location.
On arriving in Christchurch and following a stop at the botanical gardens, your driver will take you on a brief sightseeing tour highlighting the city landmarks and the city centre which was badly damaged by two earthquakes in February 2011. See for yourself both the destruction of the central city and the rebuild that is taking place.
After your tour of the city, you will head back through the rolling hills of the Banks Peninsula to visit a working sheep farm. Enjoy the experience of watching sheep dogs work, rounding up the flock and penning them for you to touch, examine and photograph. A shearing demonstration has been arranged for you and afternoon tea will be provided.
This tour from Akaroa to Christchurch is specifically designed for cruise ship passengers.
Our coach departs Akaroa at 10.30am and returns to Akaroa by 4.30pm. This will ensure you arrive at the cruise ship before departure.
