This is a great way to see the main sights of the City and get your bearings if you're new to Christchurch. The commentary from the driver was fun and interesting and the drivers we had were very helpful in guiding us to places to visit when we hopped off.Well worth the money.

It was the best way to see the city with this unlimited tram ride ticket, and the staff were very friendly and professional. While the stops were quite short at some places, it's definitely useful to have an overview of the various interesting spots in the city

Lovely ride through the streets of Christchurch in the cute tram. Driver was a wealth of knowledge and very entertaining. Nice way to see the old part of the city

This is the perfect way for newcomers to Christchurch to get a sense of the city. The tram driver gave an informative run down of the city sights and history along the entire journey. Well worth the ticket price.
