Wonderful way to travel around Christchurch! The trams are in pristine condition. It’s a bit snug but it’s more fun that way! All of our 3 conductors were funny, friendly, and very informative. You must use this service on your visit to the city.

See all the inner city with a knowledgeable commentary from the tram-driver, and the ability to hop off and on at all the attractions. Know where to go while saving your feet

This is a great way to gain a quick overview of the city if your time is limited. The commentary is interesting, the carriages (and tram drivers) full of history, and it's easy to hop on and off at the sites that interest you.

Such a great experience, I’m glad we made time for it. Drivers had great knowledge about the history of Christchurch as well as talking about the city’s rebuild. Would definitely recommend.
