This is Kiwi Guide Andre's take on the Canterbury Springtime Gardens tour, a 7 day journey through the best gardens in Canterbury in the wonderful springtime.

One of the most exciting things about what we do here at MoaTours is creating (and unveiling) new tours for our guests to enjoy.

Gardens are at their glorious best in spring.  Everything is lush, fresh, and full of promise, and even the sky seems washed clean of last winter’s frown.

Kiwis love any excuse to celebrate. A nation of pioneers and artists, farmers and athletes and everything in between; New Zealand culture is as unique as the people who live here.

New Zealand’s gardens are spectacular. Nowhere else in the world offers such a unique and diverse range of plants that thrive in environments so accessible to visitors.
