We used the tramway all day to see some of the highlights in Christchurch. Hop on hop off. A pleasing driver with details and opinions about the sites. We loved it!

This is a must do when you visit Christchurch. The Tram ride is very informative and a real experience. It was so sad though to hear all the history behind the 2011 earthquakes and to see the damage. This ride was certainly worth the fare.

Enjoyed this tram city tour with an informative funny driver but felt it’s overpriced. It is hop on hop off though so one could visit a few areas around city circle. Would have liked a bit more history on Christchurch other than the earthquake.More

If you want to explore the city itself, plus a little more local information, I would suggest you to go as early as you can, so you make your money worth. Hopping on different trams gets you different driver with different stories to tell. Some...More
