I was really excited about this tour, and there's no indication on the website that it's seasonal, but clearly they don't like running the tour in winter. I've tried to book online twice in the last 6 weeks (whenever I could get to Christchurch) - both times I booked online for two people and awaited confirmation, and then DAYS later... More

This cycling tour was an easy trip around the city centre and included Hagley Park, Riccarton House with a walk through Riccarton Bush, Christchurch Cathedral, The White Chairs, The Cardboard Cathedral and a tour of the city Rebuild sites which included some of the Fill-the-Gap projects. The local guide gave us a lot of good background information about the city... More

As our guide Natalie showed us, Christchurch has seen such destruction, but is slowly trying to rebuild from the earthquake of 2011. As we pedaled through the reasonably flat city, Natalie explained and provided insights about how the center city area is trying to recover. The pace of the tour was appropriate for those of us who don't often ride,... More

G and I spent a couple of nights in Christchurch in October 2016, en route from Rotorua to Arthur's Pass. We were keen to see how the city was doing since our last visit in 2005, and the Christchurch regeneration bike tour seemed perfect. We arranged to meet our guide Claire at the boat houses, where she sorted us out... More

Booked and paid for 2pm tour. Received confirmation email with time of 2pm. When we arrived, was told there was no tour scheduled for 2pm. We were then assured that we would get refund, but are still waiting up to a week later. No follow up from company. Disappointing and exhausting work trying to get in touch with this company...

I totally recommend the rebuild bike tour! We traveled around Christchurch by Bike and saw how it's recovering after the devastating earthquakes 5 years ago. Natalie was very informative and an excellent guide, would recommend to friends and family.

The bike tour was a great way to get an overview and orientation of Christchurch. The city has suffered in the past few years from earthquakes and slow reconstruction. The bike toured both the damaged and reconstructed areas, giving an understanding of what the town is going through. The tour also visited the parks and gardens that gave the city... More

We booked this trip months in advance with a specific request for a large bike as my husband is 6'6". The company has changed hands in the meanwhile, something we were not advised of, and the request seemed to have got lost somewhere in the process. We managed with the smaller bike but only because their are no long cycling... More

CBT accepted our booking reservation for a tour in less of 24 hours. Nathalie, our guide was not only knowledgeable but passionate and a joy to talk to. She made sure we felt comfortable and explained in detail all aspects of the places we visited. Highly recommend the tour.
