A bit pricey but a good night out, once the ticketing issues sorted.

The on line booking was flawed as I have an apostrophe ' in my surname that the web page didn't accept. I tried to make the booking on my iPhone but it appeared to not go through. I then made another booking direct to the tram company and then discovered I had been charged twice, although I didn't receive any confirmation email from GYG. I then had to get the tram company to sort it out, which they did in the end but was a hassle. I then had issues with the mobile ticket. Had to load the app then it wanted me to sign up then it wouldn't accept the access codes emailed to me. So ended up having to go back to the car to get the paper copy, which luckily I had printed out.

A brilliant package we spread over two days and worked brilliantly.

We are 'locals' from Christchurch but haven't been into central city much since the earthquake. The weather on Saturday was overcast and drizzly but not cold. We found out that it worked extremely well taking our time on the trams, exploring the new shopping centrespree and enjoying a leisurely lunch before doing the last garden tour for the day. On Sunday we caught the shuttle to the Gondola and had a stunning 360° view. We finished the tour with the punting on the Avon and found it very peaceful and relaxing. Fantastic tour guides right through and a fantastic experience.

Amazing experience, Impeccable service and Fabulous food.

Both myself and my friend booked this dinner tour after going through the reviews online... when we experienced it for ourselves, the experience blown us away. Its truly like no other at the moment, tram_ing around christchurch city and having good food & wine. Sure there are constructions going on and such but the experience is one that i will remember a long long time. :)

Wonderful experience for a local (me) to keep up with all the changes.

Will be recommending to others (local and visitors) as a unique and informative experience. Great tram driver, friendly with a touch of humour. Loved the options of all day, on/off experience. Worked well for both my grandson and me as the tram provided an easy link between the wonderful Margaret Mahy playground and the Museum, gardens, Art Centre etc, etc. Thank you

Fun, enjoyable and good food. Not much room for tall people in booths.

We had a great time on the tramway restaurant. Not much room to sit in some of the booths for big blokes but we moved to a better booth. Good food and wine and the staff were great. It would have been nice to have a commentary on the trip but overall it was a very good night - Thanks
