Very friendly drivers with great knowledge of the city. Each team and driver has its own personality and quirks. Loved getting a better orientation to the city, even if the city center wasn't that spread out. Worth the ride for tram fans. These are nicely redone.

We had a blast on this, our 3 year old loved that we could get on and off... We did the whole loop over a day, had a yummy lunch, did some shopping and stopped at the museum.

This is our first public tour since the devastating earthquakes. Soooo interesting to hear all the details of the fall and rise of our own major city. The commentary was detailed and of interest to domestic and international visitors. It's a must-do while visiting the CBD. Be on board by 10.00am and spend the day hopping on and off.

Used these on a number of occasions. Enjoyed the experience and liked the different driver’s information. Managed to have time in each of the trams and lived the fact that they passed by very many of the inner city landmarks. The first thing we did was one complete circuit and once we knew where everything was we could make plans for the rest of the day. Good price and the ticket lasted until 6.00pm each day. I would recommend the use of this at least once.
