The beautifully restored trams now follow a 2.5 kilometre loop around central Christchurch, taking in many of the historic city sights. It proved to be a fun, safe and easy way of seeing many of the interesting places in the central city. The live commentary added a lot to our enjoyment.
Tickets are purchased on board from the conductor and you can chose between a one-hour or all-day pass. You can hop on and off at any of 9 official stops. We took the one-hour ticket and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was a great orientation for further visits to particular places we wanted to see.
There is also a restaurant tram which operates for dinner all year round and for lunch during peak periods. We had previously experienced something similar in Melbourne, Australia (and in fact the restaurant tram is an ex-Melbourne tram) so we did not try it in Christchurch but can imagine that it would be the same fun experience.
Times: April-October 9am-6pm; November-March 9am-9pm
