Christchurch tour operator expands double decker bus service to Auckland and Queenstown.

Hassle-free Tours, a Christchurch based and family owned tour company, is investing nearly $2 million dollars in a project to expand their city sightseeing double decker bus tours into Auckland and Queenstown from November 2017. To manage these new services three brand new open top double decker buses have been purpose built to handle New Zealand’s road conditions and include the very latest technology and safety features.

In Auckland and Christchurch, Hassle-free Tours will provide a hop-on hop-off city sightseeing service, with half hourly departures from 10.00am. Tickets options will include a 24hr and 48hr pass, providing passengers with the flexibility to explore each city and spend as much time as they want at each attraction. The Christchurch option is featured in GPT’s Optional Tours Directory and available to travellers who have additional free time in town.

In Queenstown, Hassle-free Tours will provide a 2hr sightseeing tour, including a journey to Arrowtown onboard a classic London double decker bus.

Mark Gilbert, owner and Managing Director of Hassle-free Tours, says this is the realization of a long-time dream. “We have been successfully operating a similar service in Christchurch for more than 10 years now and we are excited to showcase our expertise, and genuine passion for city sightseeing, to Auckland and Queenstown visitors.”
