    Very fun and informative tram ride around the gardens. Passionate and knowledgeable guide.
  • Swee cheng 16 Oct 2017
    Lovely gardens and really enjoyed the guided tour on the caterpillar shuttle. Our guide, David was very informative and experienced. It was drizzling when we were there so, we didn't walk around much and the caterpillar tour was perfect to see some of the gardens.

    Nice gardens and greenhouses to wander round also a very good cafe in the grounds
  • Rohit 16 Feb 2019
    The gardens are beautiful all year around and are perfect for a walk or jog with a nice view, especially along the river. They are in a great location in the city centre next to the Canterbury Museum. This is a great place for a picnic with friends on a nice summer day with plenty of shade.

    Very friendly and detailed guide introduction, but unfortunately the time to get off the bus is only 15 minutes. It is a bit of a hurry to visit the greenhouse. I hope to increase the Chinese tour.

    The guide gives us a rich and interesting way to explain, but also can take a lovely electric shuttle, my child happy bad. The whole botanical garden is large and full of green plants. Very suitable for a size and tourists wandering. Great place!

    The botanical garden is quite large, and it is definitely the place where Christchurch will come, compared to the depression of the city, and it is good for a walk and a good place to relax. There is also a cafe where you can sit down and enjoy it all
