There's no better way to orient yourself with the city. When you need a break from sightseeing, head to Re:START shopping district, one of the stops on the Christchurch Tram route. It's an innovative post-earthquake development that uses colorful shipping containers to house its shops and eateries.
This was a very good value for the money as we only had one full day2 nights in Christchurch. We arrived late in the day via the train the night before the earthquake in November and left early the morning after. The gondola did not start operating until later in the day for safety checks, but we able to go and enjoy great views of the city and its surroundings. Having experienced an earthquake firsthand, we were really ready for a slow-paced, laid-back day, and the punt ride delivered, as did the caterpillar ride thrush Botanic Gardens. Both guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. Our hop-on-hop-off tour was not as long as we would have liked, but we were late in the day getting on. Again, the driver was well-informed and very helpful, as we were the last two on the tram as it ended for the day. Wish we hah had more time in Christchurch, but were covering as much of this beautiful country as possible in the 2 weeks we had.
An easy way to get around the center of Christchurch. The trams, we rode on, were old motor cars from the US. Motor man gave a good overview of the areas we passed. Make sure to visit Re:START Mall quaint shopping and eating in businesses housed in shipping containers, Canterbury Museum, Antigua Boat Sheds go punting on the Avon river, and transfer at the museum to the Gondola shuttle transfers you to gondola ride which allows tremendous views of the city. Admission for the latter two are included in the Pass fee.
We had a amazing trip. well worth the experience.
I have been living in Christchurch for 2 and a half years now. Learnt a lot
Best value for the money. The punt ride was the best and the driverpunter was very informative. The museum was very good and really gave a great overview of the country and history.
This tour was great, the pass really allows to see a vast part of Christchurch. Seeing the rebuild after the Earthquake was great to see a city rebuild from such tragic events.
Great way to see the city. Shame we didn't have more time. One day not enough do all

Good way to see Wellington ... tour guides were very good!
We didn't get full value out of this but that was due to time constraints and weather. The tram was a great way of seeing the city and the drivers were very knowledgeable. The gondola gives amazing views of Christchurch
Great punt ride with informative driver. Museum was truly informative and provide a good view into the history and culture of the area.
