This is a must do while in Christchurch travelling on original 1920’s trams with local commentary around the city. Fun and quirky with 17 hop on hop off stops all valid with the same ticket.

So great to see the regeneration of this beautiful city from the tram. Kept us warm and dry on a terribly rainy day! The driver provided interesting commentary and the conductor was friendly.

The Tram tour of Christchurch covers most of the damamged area from the recent earthquake about 50% has been repaired and upgraded to earthquake proof with an estimate of a $70 billion to complete. Plenty of galleries and shops plus places to stop a meal . The trams run about every half hous so there is only a few minutes to wait for another tram
