Take a unique sightseeing tour of the inner city aboard an antique tram as the driver provides a live and entertaining commentary. A full circuit takes 50 minutes and includes 17 stops, where you can hop on and off as often as you wish.

Tram was a brilliant way to get to know the town. Fantastic drivers who passed on great information. Easy to hop on and off, with a different tram coming along every few minutes. Gondola was a simple bus ride from the main bus hub. Fantastic views and coffee. Really two must do’s when in Christchurch.

Tram ride very informative and gave easy access to the city. crew very helpful and pleasant, answered questions and gave lots of information. I had a lovely day. Gondala was well worth doing, great views at top.

Great tram guide, full of humour and knowledge. Beautiful city as well. View from top of lift spectacular. Walk down steep and testing. But…well worth it.

Staff were so helpful and we didn't have to go all the way to cathedral junction to collect tickets, which was great. Highly recommend.

The tram drivers are great very knowledgable. The views from the cable cars are something else.
