This was a perfect way to see the sights and also hear the history of Christchurch. Loved that you could hop on and hop off at any of the 15 or 16 stops. There was three trams operating the day we went so often you'd find yourself getting on a different tram, but even if you got on the same tram there was often a different driver so there was always a different commentary. Really friendly and helpful staff. Special thanks to Mark and also Jan who chatted to us for 15 minutes at Cathedral Square while we were waiting for the shuttle bus to the Gondola. Highly recommend.

I thought that this tour was a little expensive but the tour is a great way to get a quick overview of the city. The driver/guide gave a good tour and pointed out all of the points of interest. There aren't many stops but they are located for the important places to visit.

The driver was very informative. Plenty of stops to visit along the way and runs regularly. Would be good if it started at 9am in the winter as starting at 10am we found we didnt have much time to spend at each place.

This team ride would be the best way to travel around the Christchurch CBD and get a good understanding of what’s happened since the earthquakes. You’ll pass the buildings still requiring rebuilding plus see all the new buildings which are now becoming the new Christchurch. The driver on these trips explains all about the quake damage and the repairs so far well worth the ride.
