We highly recommend this tour if you come into port at Lyttleton or are in the Christchurch area. Nicole did a great job of communicating what we could expect well in advance of the tour and flexing our pick up time based on the weather forecast. That’s customer service!! She packed a lovely picnic lunch and water bottles, provided walking sticks and guided us at the pace we were comfortable with, stopping as frequently as we wanted to take photos. She is very knowledgeable about the history of the area. Wonderful way to spend time in port!

So easy to navigate and the staff were all so friendly and helpful! We had a lovely lady driver on the tram, who made the experience noteworthy and she had a wealth of knowledge. Would highly recommend as an attraction to see the whole city!

The gondolas are so beautiful, just be mindful that these are further out the city than the punting and trams! You can get a 2 dollar bus from the bus interchange and be at the gondolas in 30 minutes so don't let that put you off!

My experience was amazing, I loved all the three activities and I will do them again.

The whole experience was great and the Train Restaurant was outstanding
