They say good things come in small packages, which rings true for our beautiful city and is also one of the reasons why Caroline’s Kombi Tours are so popular.
Providing a unique and fun way to explore Christchurch, one of the wonderful things about a Kombi Van is its small size, which is a great way of bringing people together. “When filled with people it brings a real closeness,” says Caroline, who runs the business with her husband Murray. “Our tours are about learning new things and having fun but it’s also about people connecting and getting to know each other.”
For business owners looking for an enjoyable team building idea – come on board for a tailored Caroline’s Kombi experience! With many small businesses doing big things, the tours also provide a fantastic way to showcase and support local businesses. From tasting the amazing Bennetto Organic Fairtrade Chocolate to drinking a shot of Number 8 from the new business Ball & Cue, our city is full of small businesses providing the best in food and beverage.
Visiting the Christchurch farmers’ markets is something everyone should experience and it’s also exciting to see Riverside Farmers Market will be open in a few months, on the corner of Oxford Terrace and Cashel Street. The market will be full of local growers and small businesses – an amazing addition to the central city.
Another small and beautiful place to be proud of is our world-class facility for the music and arts of Canterbury, The Piano. The architectural design is inspired by a grand piano and the name of the building in Māori is small bird – the Pipiwharauroa. The shining cuckoo are the conveyors of messages of singers and entertainers; and are also of significance for the Ngāi Tūāhuriri.
The Lonely Planet has ranked Christchurch as a global street art capital – for a small city we are BIG on art. With Caroline’s Art Tours, you will see the best of the city’s street art, as well as other amazing outdoor sculptures. Caroline’s Kombi specialises in small groups and the company focuses on providing a fun-filled experience, sharing wonderful stories and fun facts, along with their extensive local knowledge.
“We enjoy meeting new people and would love to take your family, friends, employees, visitors or grandparents on a journey to showcase the arts, but of course we also have other tours available. We take great pride in providing our customers the best possible experience – we would love to hear from you.”
Some of the fantastic feedback from one of the company’s many happy customers: “Highly recommend. Was thoroughly enjoyable and something a little different and a uniquely NZ experience A++++.”
