Christchurch is a special city. Energized and reimagined after the 2011 earthquake, the city is a wonderful introduction to New Zealand’s culture. After being greeted at the airport, you will be transferred to a five-star hotel in a building that has been repurposed since the earthquake. You will soon discover the local atmosphere and Kiwi way of life on a local tour of the city. Massive art murals cover the walls, and you will gain an intimate insight into what happened during and after the quake. Afterward, you will have dinner reservations at a tiny restaurant that hides behind rubble.
