Customer Reviews

Friendly and informative staff. Comfortable seats. Fun way to see the City and history around Christchurch

HAG93 - Kumara, New Zealand

A great way to see the city if you have limited time as it stops at most of the places you would want to see. It’s hop on and hop off and they run every 12-15mins or so. The drivers give a commentary and if you’re lucky will get one with a good sense of humour. Well worth it. Hint: buy the ticket in the morning to get the most value from the ticket and be able to see and enjoy all the sites and spots to visit along the circuits.

The hop on hop off concept is great and opportunity to see the city with a touch of history. The trams are so well maintained and a credit to be a part of the Christchurch tourism. The tram drivers were very informative and friendly and added to the experience. Children are free which is helpful as adults are $25/ticket. Hint: buy the ticket in the morning to get the most value from the ticket and be able to see and enjoy all the sites and spots to visit along the circuits.

Brilliant service; lots of hop-on-hop-off stops; very entertaining and interesting commentary from tram drivers; a quick and easy was to see Christchurch, particularly if your time is limited
