    very interesting tour

    Pity it was so wet and cold but the driver and tour guide did their upmost to ensure the tour was enjoyable. It was interesting to see the contrast between the buildings being repaired, restored buildings, new buildings, empty lots and those waiting to be restored. We were given quite a comprehensive commentary and were able to ask any questions as we went.

    There aren't enough stars...

    This tour was just mind blowing. I had no idea of the enormity of the devastation nor the scale of the rebuild. Our guide was amazing as she had lived the event and was obviously passionate about the rebuild. Everyone needs to do this

    Well worth doing

    Took my grandson from Brisbane with me and we both loved it. Mixed emotions of cause at the extent of the damage but the amount of work going on is amazing. That part is so exciting. A great city is in the making. Thank you so much Trish from Christchurch and Cameron from Brisbane.
