This 'Hop on, Hop Off' ride takes one to several major areas of the CBD where one can get off and explore, before getting on again and moving on to another area. The 'Container Shops' were really surprising! You forget they are all built in containers - look amazing, and all services, e.g. banks, post office, food shops and general... More

Kids love the tram and is a great way of getting around the city. Great to be able to hop on and off around cashel mall for a spot of shopping and a demitris kebab and good coffee and then kids always love the imagination station stop in new regent st. Would recommend highly.

Brilliant way of getting around the CBD (for a tourist) and to see the devastation of the cathedral, rebuilding efforts and the Avon - from the tram bridge ! We got on and off three or four times at points of interest - cathedral, Regent st, restart mall. Excellent value and very well restored trams. They are a real asset... More

It is good to see this tram trip is back running after the Earth Quake . Good to see how the city has risen up again. Another must see for overseas guests and fellow New Zealanders. It does give you an idea of what Christchurch has been through.

This tramway ride actually takes you right inside the shops. There is a big door that opens when it gets there. It takes you around the City as well.
