The city is quite compact and it takes about 20 minutes to get to the city centre if you go directly through the Lyttelton tunnel. However there are two options to come over the port hills either via Evans Pass into Sumner or over  Dyers Pass road from Governors Bay down in to the city.

I am able to split your group up if you have members wishing to have different experiences and can easily work out tailor made experiences.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to mail me and I shall promptly answer or if you prefer to chat please refer to the contact page and happy to speak to you via which-ever app is most suitable for you.

Things to see or do near Akaroa on Banks Peninsula include:

The village at Little River has some neat little arty cafes and view the old railway station as well as some lovely native song birds to listen to. The beach at Kaitorete Spit has beautiful washed stones with some glorious colours and views along the coast to Banks Peninsula.

I can take you over the hill into Christchurch to show you the Garden City we can travel via Godley head and drop down on to Sumner Beach. Enjoy a coffee on the waterfront if you wish. 

 

Whilst in Christchurch there is much to see as the city is recovering from the 2011 Earthquake. The Botanical gardens are a treasure in the center of the city and take a brief walk through the Arts Centre. One of the worlds largest restoration projects. The Museum is close by also if you wish to see some of our colonial history or the cities connection with Antarctica or some of the Maori exhibitions.

I can provide home-made picnics largely grown in my organic garden to enjoy in a scenic location for $35 per person or if you chose to come to Christchurch we can enjoy lunch in our sunroom, or if you prefer, take you to a café or restaurant of your choice .

Other points of interest within the city are a private prize-winning garden $15.00 per person.
