We arrived a bit late in the day and there was only two trams left. But luckily they discount the price at the end of the day so it was $10 instead of $25.

We didn't bother to 'hop off' with only one more tram to come, we stayed on for a full loop.

It was a great experience and the driver was informative and very funny. He clearly enjoys what he does.

Would definitely recommend.

Wonderful way to travel around Christchurch! The trams are in pristine condition. It’s a bit snug but it’s more fun that way! All of our 3 conductors were funny, friendly, and very informative. You must use this service on your visit to the city.

A delightful trip around the central business district of Christchurch with commentary given by the various drivers. A significant amount of history of the 2010 quake and rebuilding of the CBD is included. The scenery is also beautiful.

A fun way to get familiar with the city and learn a little about the locals as you go. We boarded at the main terminal I guess you could say and is where we collected our tickets. We did the full circuit which took less than an hour but it helped us get our bearings. The driver was friendly and very knowledgeable which added to the experience. The tram we took was beautifully restored and is a credit to them. The price was good as we purchased a triple pass which included the Gondola and Punt which I also suggest you check out.

Hi Jason, Thanks for the feedback on our Trams, some of them are near 100 years old and have been restored beautifully. The triple-pass is a great value deal which can be used over several days to explore our city. Glad to hear that you enjoyed yourselves :) Kind Regards Christchurch Attractions

Tram Ride
Jun 2021
Quite expensive as a parent of an older teenager, still at school - need to pay for the child as an adult even though they are still a dependent. The circuit was good and informative though easily walkable. The conductors were lovely.
The jokes about Aucklanders wear thin after awhile (only one driver) and I ended up feeling very embarrassed to be an Auckland on the tram. We live on the outskirts of Auckland, and our drain on the Waikato was brought up (of course, the driver could not have known that we have our own water supply), and I understand that), as was rivalry between Auckland and Christchurch, which I wasn't previously aware of - I have only ever felt kindness to the people of Christchurch. Having been active in offering accommodation after the earthquakes, liaising with colleagues with as much support as I possibly could after the mosque attacks, and most recently being involved in fundraising for the people affected by floods, I was disappointed to see that this is the way people living in Auckland (which is diverse and covers many km) are possibly perceived in Christchurch.

Must do!
Apr 2021
I highly recommend riding the tram when you're in Christchurch. I found the best way was to do a full circuit of the CBD and then you'll get an idea of the places you want to take a closer look at. I went to the museum and the tram stop was right across the street which was super handy. The trams come by frequently so you won't have to worry about standing out in the cold for too long! The trams are also in a beautiful condition and feels like stepping back in time.
Special mention to Tom and Baz for being such great tram driver/tour guides. They were extremely knowledgeable and personable!

What a fantastic way to see Christchurch central. We stayed on the first round and then went around again and got on and off. During Winter the Tram runs every 20mins. Great commentary from all the different drivers we had along the way. A beautiful city indeed.
