Wonderful! Tram drivers excellent guides and a wonderful way to see the City😊Highly recommend this way of seeing Christchurch.
Amazing way to see Christchurch, we did a couple of laps of the circuit so as not to miss anything, commentary was great, the tram staff were wonderful and then we hopped off and had some lunch, hopped back on and completed the circuit again. This is a fantastic way to see all the wonderful sights of Christchurch, a beautiful city, rebuilding everywhere, again thank you for a great day
The trams are great with some dating back to the start of last century, Drivers give an exceptional talk over of where we are, very interesting and well worth the money. Such a shame that Christchurch as been so devastated by the two earthquakes.
Excellent value for money and chatting to the overseas tourists on the tram they loved it too. The trams were clean and comfortable and the driver interesting and informative. She had a good sense of humour and a wide knowledge of the city and the progress that had been made.
