Great way to see a lot in a short time although unless you are into airplanes, the Air Force museum was a bit boring although good for a quick look.

I only had four days to visit Christchurch, and this package was great. I saw the main attractions and split them up between two days to fit in other activities. This was fantastic and completely worthwhile!

Driver who picked us up at the hotel was confusing and in too much of a hurry. We didn't know what was to happen after Antartica Museum. Lady at museum phoned to clarify this, and our tour guide from that point on was very friendly and helpful.

We saw a lot of Christchurch on our tour. The tour driver was at the location stated on the form and we had great fun all day. I would recommend this to anyone.

I was extremely disappointed that instead of the cable car we visited the Air Force Museum. The other three "must sees" were lots of fun.
