Christchurch City, Whales & Wine Classic Package

Christchurch City, Whales and Wine Classic Package - Hero

Independent Tours

Combine wineries, history, architecture and whale watching on this 4-day independent tour showcasing the highlights of Christchurch and beyond. Located to the east of the South Island, Christchurch is the second largest city and definitely one of New Zealand’s most beautiful set against the backdrop of the Canterbury Plains. You’ll get to see the blend of historic and modern buildings, beautiful gardens and scenic viewpoints of the city, as well as head out to some of the boutique wineries in the Waipara Valley with a chance to do some tastings at each. You’ll also visit Kaikoura, an idyllic small seaside township on a rocky peninsula, where you’ll enjoy the ultimate experience of whale watching.
