The tram just covers a small part of the center of town but it is an interesting ride on old tram cars and the commentary is helpful. It provides a good overall view of the town center, including the cathedral.

This is the perfect way to see the centre of Christchurch. The drivers are very knowledgeable and you can hop on and hop off as often as you wish. No discounts for seniors which we found a bit disappointing.

Good way to orientate yourself if not familiar with the city. Being able to hop on and off during the day makes for a good easy way to see what interests. Informative talk from driver is appreciated.

We were visiting for a couple of days and decided to take the old trams. The hop on and hop off works really well and we took full advantage. The price of $25 per person seemed reasonable as the ticket lasted all day.

The Tramway is a wonderful way to see the city of Christchurch and all its history. It was really interesting to see the aftermath of the earthquake, and learning how Christchurch is building itself back up again. The drivers and employees were incredibly nice and...More

I have an annual ticket & enjoy the different conductors commentaries. It is great to be able to get on & off & the stops are not too far apart so you can have a walk in between stops.

I bought my ticket from the ticket shop but you can buy them on the tram itself. I paid $25. It is really a tour around the city rather than a method of transport. You can get off and on at any point. The route...More
