Had a great time on the Tram, the driver was very informative and friendly, my 3yo son had such a great time.

We like a bus / tram journey round new towns/cities and this one didn't disappoint it's a sort of circular tour (one bit goes up a oneway street and has to come back) it shows then new buildings and old some falling down plus a excellent commentary from the driver. A must do just to get your bearings!

The city tour fills in the gaps in your knowledge. The driver was able to provide updates on the progress of the restoration, what new buildings there were and what had been demolished.

Having come down from the gondola is was lovely to get into town and enjoy a guided tour around the city. The staff were friendly and informative and we were made to feel very welcome! Would recommend to anyone wanting to explore Christchurch as it is a great starting point.
