This tram is charming. It might not feel like Christchurch if it was missing this tram. If you are not on it, look for it!

Good way to slowly see the city. After a walking tour it was nice to take the tram and see it again.

We caught the tram at the i-site where we also bought the tickets. The i-site is a great starting point for a lot of activities because apart from all of the amenities and information, it's staffed by really helpful people. The tram conductor was a charming and helpful young woman and the driver was an older guy with an encyclopedic knowledge of the central city. He was clearly, and justifiably, in love with the city and his enthusiasm was great. After one entire circuit to get our bearings, we found it easy to get on and off and made good use of our tickets and out day. If you're planning to be in the city for a couple of days, it's well worth buying the discounted combos which include, among other things,the Gondola and the Punting on the Avon: the city's must see attractions.

A great way to get around the city with some interesting facts thrown in. You can get on and off where you want to. Trams came quite frequently. Also different drivers had different info to impart. Very friendly staff.
