An informative experience. Lovely tram with reversing seats. Talkative driver. Fun way to see some city highlights. You can hop off and back on again.

the tram rail itself is quite small, this is due to the earthquake damage is not what it used to be. Still is a cute way to see the city, and the drivers commentary is the best part of it. Very informative and friendly staff.
