me and my mum had a wonderful time on the tran , all the conductors and drivers were spontaneous & very knowledgeable giving us a tour around Christchurch cbd ' I highly recommend using the tram when travelling around town , there was never a dull moment , each person on all 3 trams were an absolute delight. for our first experience visiting Christchurch it was the BEST !

Love the fact that the trams have been restored and save, what a great asset to Christchurch, the driver was lovely and very knowledgeable, the Tram goes all around and a new section of track had just opened the day I travelled, I would highly recommend this activity

Pre booked on line rather than rip-off excursion price from cruise ship. Beautiful city which has been rebuilt still keeping its heritage after the earthquake. Great way to see the sights with excellent commentary from driver.

We really enjoyed our tram ride. Funny, knowledgeable drivers. Interesting to see the city being rebuilt and hear the commentary.

A great unique experience that gave a good insight into the city. The tram driver was most helpful,and knowledgeable.
