Hens Parties

Whether it’s day or night, we make sure you have the best time!

We’re all about making sure your hen’s party is hassle free and loads of fun, with photos to look back on!

We have a range of options or you can tailor make your own!

Day trips:

Wine tastings/bar crawl

PICK-UP – 11am/11.30am

This is a very popular choice for our hens, visiting Melton Estate first for lunch and tastings. We make the booking and you organise/pre-order the food and tastings directly.

Second stop is a south Christchurch winery for tastings. This is $15 – $20 per head. (Price depends on which experience you opt for. One offers a beautiful sparkling sangria tasting!)

We can then head to a bar or two depending on time.

DROP-OFF – between 5pm – 5.30pm


Late afternoon trips:

Cocktails and platters

PICK-UP – about 4pm

This our newest option – another popular choice!

We will head to a local bar for a cocktail or drink of your choice.

Our next stop will have platters/finger food and time to play a few games if you wish. We can then head to another local bar for a boogie and drink with the possibility* of meeting up with our night party bus trips.

PRICE for this package starts at $85pp with a minimum of 20 people. (This includes your first drink/cocktail and the platters)

DROP-OFF – approx 9pm in town or your chosen location OR

*DROP-OFF – approx 11pm (If you want to carry on partying with our other buses, if they’re out, this must be pre-arranged. There will be an extra charge for this.

(NB: Check out our Round the Bays trips. These are a great choice for a fab day out with the girls!)


Night trips:

Who doesn’t love a night bar crawl!

PICK-UP – about 7.30pm (but can do earlier if requested)

We visit FOUR popular bars around the Christchurch suburbs. All our buses have poles, dance areas and great sounds. You can even bring your own music if you wish. (See below for all our bus options.)

We provide complimentary pizza at one of the bars.

PRICE from $900

DROP-OFF – 11pm-11.30pm in town or your chosen location

TIP: Why not upgrade to our most popular neon pink VIP CRUISER bus. This is a huge hit with hens’ parties.

(NB: Check out our Mystery Dinner package – these can be great for hens’ parties too!)
