A delightful way to meander around Christchurch with a full commentary on everything of historical interest. Our driver/conductor ? was very knowledgable and fielded questions with authority and humour. You can hop off and hop on again with another following tram if you wish.

Everything in one tour. You punt on the Avon, go up the gondola, lunch at Mona Vale, tour the Botanic Gardens, drive throughout the city and get a 2-day trolley pass. Very informative, entertaining tour guide. A full day of activity.
