We actually stopped at Akaroa which is about 80 klms from Christchurch but the pier was still damaged from the earthquake so we went to shore on the lifeboats which were well organized & only took about 15mins to go ashore. Quaint little village-not much to do but one of the girls I met went on a swimming with the dolphins tour & had a ball so there were lots of options available. Read Less

Once again no problems getting into town and back. We were fortunate to be in the city when it was welcoming the para Olympians for the Games in Christchurch. A bit of rain but no real signs of the recent earthquakes.

Christchurch; We hired "Inside Story" for our tour. This ship docks at Littleton at a working dock, we had to take a free bus into Littleton where Terry met us and started our tour. Christchurch is on the other side of the mountain. We drove to Akaroa 1 1/2 hrs away. The drive was really beautiful. It's a quaint little village by the water. The scenery was spectacular. We had lunch at a little cafe by the side of the road that made gourmet food. Terry had lunch with us (he paid for himself) we drove into Christchurch where he had us meander thorough a park that was beautiful, then drove us downtown and we walked down to the church and back. We really enjoyed Terry he was full of information and very organized and thoughtful. We would highly recommend him. Read Less

What can I say about Christchurch, I saw a beautiful city with a winding river with the most stunning garden banks, people punting up the river, very English The cathedral was beautiful to see, cool inside with the most gorgeous stained glass windows I watched with horror as the pictures of the damage from the recent earthquake splashed across the TV, the Christchurch I saw and loved is gone Read Less
