“What a great time we had. I have visited Christchurch a million times on business but never for pleasure. We thought about how best to see the city and decided that maybe a pedal bike was the way to go. Something different for us Aucklanders! We booked in with Stu for a toured bike ride on some old school traditional bikes. He showed us the sites both old and new and the re-development going on after the earthquake.  We learned heaps about the history and the plans for the city. My son loved the kids bike and has decided he’d like one for home.  I would fully recommend this as a great way to discover CHCH. Beats a car any day and you get to see so much more than if you were walking. I’m sure we’ll be back in a few years to see how the city has developed and will definitely be booking another tour with Stu.”
