Visited the Christchurch tram yesterday and thought it was excellent. Particularly the very friendly and knowledgeable driver and guide, Barry. What he doesn't know about Christchurch probably isn't worth knowing anyway. Will definitely recommend the tram to anyone visiting Christchurch in the future. Well done...More

The tram provides an easy jump on, jump off way to view the city centre with some good history and commentary from the driver. Well worth the money

We had a 'hop on, hop off' ticket which we took advantage of. The trams are beautiful and the drivers are all very knowledgeable about the city. A great way to see some of the city and rest your legs for a while!

This is a great way to see inner Christchurch. Stop in Regent St for coffee and also High St. Perhaps take in lunch or go and have a shop at Ballantynes. Do check out the Arts Centre

Quite a pleasant way to see Christchurch, it would have been nice to completely round but this was not possible due to building. Can hop on and off

We enjoyed the ride and commentary and found it a great way to get our bearings in the city before exploring on foot. You can use the ticket all day which was an added bonus.
