I booked this journey at the tourist Information centre in Christchurch the day before and got a one way ticket for $99. I used the free shuttle from my hostel to the train station which was efficient and the checking in process at the station was quick and easy. The seats are comfortable and there is various commentary during the journey explaining the sights you are passing. The outdoor viewing section is well worth venturing to although wrap up warm - I didn't take a coat and was very cold standing there!!!
