Christchurch Hop-On Hop-Off Tram
From US$17.54
Overview
Travel a 50-minute circuit aboard the Christchurch Tramway, which departs daily every 15 minutes. Use your ticket to hop on and hop off at 17 stops and create your own sightseeing itinerary. Drivers provide live commentary on the landmarks of this South Island city. Bonus: children up to age 15 travel free.
What to Expect
Board the Christchurch Tramway at any of the 17 stops in the city center and journey in style. The restored vintage trams depart daily every 15–20 minutes and you can use your ticket to hop on and hop off anywhere along the newly extended route.

The 50-minute circuit starts at Cathedral Junction and travels through Cathedral Square before passing the Avon River, Re:START Mall, and High Street. From here, the tram rejoins a loop and passes by the Canterbury Museum, Hagley Park, Victoria Square, and New Regent Street. Stops include Punting on the Avon and the Christchurch Botanic Gardens.

Hear live commentary on the sights while you learn about the heritage and changing face of Christchurch. Knowledgeable drivers inform you about the city and its local landmarks along the way.
