Good fun for the family for a few hours. Great views in from the gondola and from the lookout at the top.
Nothing in Christchurch is open on Christmas Day!! We arrived on a cruise ship, who also offered this as an excursion for 3x this cost. Since we were off and running we got the best times to ride all three. It is a good trip to see the city at all angles.
I was on a cruise and in Christchurch for one day only. The gondolatrampunt ticket was a brilliant way to see the best of Christchurch. Plan your day around the time of your booking for the punt which you must do that day. The tram drivers give a great commentary. I did the gondola ride last on my way back to the port of Lyttelton which is a gorgeous little village and also well worth a visit.
Absolutely stunning views! This is the only way to take in the spectacular scenery! Slow, steady ascent and descent. I would have preferred a little more history from the Time Tunnel!
My wife and I had the tram and gondola package and it was awesome. There is a lot to see in Christchurch. I strongly recommend the gondola ride up the hill, the views are 360 degrees - awesome. The tram is a unique way of seeing the city and the commentary is informative, the driver tells you all about the history of Christchurch as you go around the streets. This is a MUST DO thing when you are visiting Christchurch.
Although a little scary, the Gondola ride was spectacular. Dinner in the restaurant was very good and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
There was a bit of confusion over the shuttle bus from central Christchurch which we had to pay for and we had to catch the normal bus back to town as the shuttle finished before the gondola. Great views from the top and very helpful staff
A lovely way to see the sights and view of Christchurch and the surrounding area, highly recommend.
This was so good the amount of boulders that had been thrown down the mountain side during the earthquake was unbelievable we had a meal at the lookout and the views were spectacular
Sadly it rained for the whole time we were in Christchurch. We did go on the gondola and enjoyed the ride thru the rain to the top. We had lunch in the cafe and watched in amazement as clouds continuously rolled over the top of the mountain and blocked out the view. Because of the consistent rain the Avon river was in flood and we could not do the punt ride. We have requested a refund of this part of the tour and are waiting for Viator to process this.
Bought trio ticket tram ride and punting down avon great value but down side we were docked on cruise ship in lyletton travel on shuttle to center of christchurch then bus to tram then return to christchurch to catch shuttle back to where we had just been Future effort to let cruise passengers off at terminal about six min out of the way would be welcome all in all pleasant short day difficult to find much earthquake damage second quick visit but still retains all of it charm
Great first day activity after 16 hour flight. The views were great, punting on the Avon was one of my wife's favorite activities and the tram convenient and enjoyable.
Great views and we got some spectacular photos...and the exchange rate made this 100 percent worth it!
Really enjoyed the Gondola trip, great views on a great day, not to be missed. I was disappointed at the 35 cost of photos on Gondola.
We did the gondola in Queenstown, which is much better, but still had a good time on this, and booking with Viator made it much easier.
