Explore the garden city of Christchurch, and the surrounding areas by luxury vehicle. We will discuss the factors that have shaped the city and discuss why it is such an inviting place to visit and stay.

We head towards the Port Hills which overlook Christchurch and present stunning views of the city, Canterbury Plains, Lyttelton Harbour and the distant Southern Alps. After dropping into Lyttelton Harbour you will have time explore a private Garden which has been growing since 1865 and include a great variety of exotic trees, shrub rhododendrons, camellias and a good variety of New Zealand native plants. 

Head back towards Christchurch city stopping for a relaxing lunch, then visit the Botanical gardens. Here you will see exotic trees that are some of the largest, the tallest or the oldest of their kind in New Zealand. You will see spectacular colour, intriguing sculptures, and memorial plantings that celebrate local and international history. 

Our hidden treasure is the Kate Sheppard house and garden.
