Kim’s understanding, insight and passion for Christchurch makes her the perfect one to introduce you to this city in the process of rebirth following the earthquake. We learned about historic architecture - that which survived the earthquake and that which fell. We heard about redevelopment...More

We were referred to Kim by a government employee working in Christchurch, and we found Kim to be an excellent local walking-tour guide: personable and well-informed.

Tour was $80 for first person, $100 total for the 2 of us NZ dollars. She’ll meet you at your accomodation if that’s what you want and it took around 2 ½ hours. Worth every cent. You won’t regret it!
