Not for the faint hearted. Views outstanding and the history show at the summit was an added bonus. Do visit.

There are no senior discounts on this Island so full price at all attractions. The view is spectuyalr and at the top the resturant is well worth the scones and coffee. You can watch the Luge riders come down the hill whilst sipping coffee

Lovely experience up the Christchurch gondola. Had a drink from the cafe that was well stocked and reasonably priced. View was great and enjoyed the short historical ride too.

The Gondola as such provides an nice experience. The ride up is pleasant and personell are friendly and helpful. Walking on the top is more troublesome because of the lacking indications. There are four possibilities: touring the volcano rim, to the bluff and back, to...More
