A delightful trip around the central business district of Christchurch with commentary given by the various drivers. A significant amount of history of the 2010 quake and rebuilding of the CBD is included. The scenery is also beautiful.

This is a great way to gain a quick overview of the city if your time is limited. The commentary is interesting, the carriages (and tram drivers) full of history, and it's easy to hop on and off at the sites that interest you.

Such a great experience, I’m glad we made time for it. Drivers had great knowledge about the history of Christchurch as well as talking about the city’s rebuild. Would definitely recommend.

Convenient and informative. Great for orientation if you're not familiar with the layout of the city. Can go round once and then on the second loop get off to explore bits of interest you saw on the first loop.

A fun way to get familiar with the city and learn a little about the locals as you go. We boarded at the main terminal I guess you could say and is where we collected our tickets. We did the full circuit which took less than an hour but it helped us get our bearings. The driver was friendly and very knowledgeable which added to the experience. The tram we took was beautifully restored and is a credit to them. The price was good as we purchased a triple pass which included the Gondola and Punt which I also suggest you check out.
