What a great way to see Christchurch as it’s recovery from the earthquakes starts to speed up! The drivers were fun and informative. Seemed a bit pricey until we discovered the Tram/Gondola annual pass which represents excellent value for money!

What a great way to get toknow the area and history. Susie and the happy conductor (sorry missed your name), were brilliant. Their knowledge and support was fantastic. Loved the heated piping to keep you warm. Great for people watching.

As the stop was right outside our hotel the Novotel we chose to use the tram to site see the city in a very informative and casual way.
