Our Half Day Canterbury Tours run for approximately four to five hours, ex Christchurch and return. We have morning (8:00am) or afternoon (1:00pm) departures daily on demand. These tours are great for those short on time.

Pickup and drop off is provided from most of the major hotels and motels within the Christchurch CBD, or from outside the Canterbury Museum.

Each tour includes snacks, nibbles, beverages, airconditioned transport, experienced driver-guide, tailored photography tuition (if required), all activities and fees (as applicable), and of course photogenic scenery galore!

With five different tour options that cover farms, mountains, oceans, history, and harbour fronts, the variety of tours means we have something for just about everyone:

Sumner & Godley Head

Sandy beaches, sea cliffs, old forts, a bit of history, along with working harbour views. What’s not to like about that?

Lees Valley

Splendid isolation from the outside world deep in the Canterbury foot-hills, where just getting there is an adventure in itself!

Porters Pass

An alpine pass, and a pristine mountain lake. All within easy reach of Christchurch. What more could you ask for?

Lyttelton Harbour

Road tunnels, magnificent harbour views, extinct volcanoes, isolated bays, and a long human history in the area…

Dyers Pass-Birdlings Flat

This tour starts with the volcanic hilltops above Lyttelton harbour and finishes with the windswept beach at Birdlings Flat
