What You Can Expect

Tramway Restaurant Dinner Tour of Christchurch

Tramway Restaurant dinner tour through central Christchurch.

Start your 2.5-hour dinner tour of Christchurch from Cathedral Junction, where you’ll board the beautifully restored Christchurch Tramway. Professional waitstaff take you to your 2-person or 4-person table in the air-conditioned tramcar restaurant, which holds a maximum of 36 guests.

You’re served a welcome drink, followed by a 4-course meal prepared with a seasonal menu (see sample in Itinerary below). Coffee and tea service accompanies dessert, and alcoholic drinks are available to purchase. 

Relax as you dine, chat with your companions and take in the sights of central Christchurch. Your informative Christchurch Tramway driver shares the history of local landmarks you pass, including the Christchurch Botanic Gardens, Hagley Park, the Avon River, the Canterbury Museum and New Regent Street. Learn about Re:START Mall and other recovery efforts since the devastating earthquakes of 2010 and 2011.

This was a great experience. The staff were fantastic and the meals were beautiful. This is a must do experience. The tram driver also stopped and let us off near our cars at the end of the night. A fun night.

Amazing staff, delicious food, the tram itself is lovely!
There was no 'tour' I was l looking forward to learning about the beautiful city but we didn't get taught anything.
All staff were beautiful. I recommend the company including a TOUR.

Fantastic food and lovely atmosphere. We did this dinner tour in winter and it was dark so there's not much to see but the driver gave some interesting information. Nevertheless, we highly recommend this tour as the quality of the food and high level of services was exceptionally good.
