A very convenient and time saving way to get to know Christchurch, especially on a day with 32 degree temperature. The tram driver who also does the commentary is very friendly, experienced and will show you ways to other places of interest when asked. The hop on hop off gives flexibility to your own travel schedule. Highly recommend for first time visitor to this small garden city!
Ever since our girls were little they have wanted to ride in a helicopter. I suspect its because we stay near an army base and we see and hear choppers on a daily basis. Finally in chch we got our chance! The girls were delighted with our lady pilot Juliet! The flight can be a little bumpy at times but if you're up for an airview of the city, you should do this.
Very wonderful way to circle around central Christchurch and learn about the histories of the town. The tramway is 1.5 hours if you don’t stop. But definitely stop at Stop #3 & 4 for farmer’s market and the river. The tram is every 15 minutes so plan your stop wisely. And stop 12 for the botanic garden. It took me 5 hours and it is worth it.
The drivers have a very good knowledge of the history and present development of the city centre. The hopping on and dropping off at my preferred site make the exploration of the town very convenient and unique experience. It will be even better if the tram stop has number that coincides with the map given.
I love this tram. It is because it can take you to all the iconic tourist spots in Christchurch. You can feel free to drop off and get back to the tram within that day. The trams are so beautiful. The driver also is very talkative and friendly. However, the tram Prince Harry had visited under maintenance, so, sadly, I cannot attend that tram for this time.
