    What to Expect
    Start your 2.5-hour dinner tour of Christchurch from Cathedral Junction, where you’ll board the beautifully restored Christchurch Tramway. Professional waitstaff take you to your 2-person or 4-person table in the air-conditioned tramcar restaurant, which holds a maximum of 36 guests.

    You’re served a welcome drink, followed by a 4-course meal prepared with a seasonal menu (see sample in Itinerary below). Coffee and tea service accompanies dessert, and alcoholic drinks are available to purchase. Relax as you dine, chat with your companions and take in the sights of central Christchurch.

    After dinner, the tram makes its way back to Cathedral Junction where your tour ends. (Click on the 'View additional info' link below to see a map of the tram route.)

    These are beautiful trams. We did the Tramway restaurant dinner tram on a beautifully restored old Melbourne tram. Its lovely to see the trams running around the city. I wish more cities would run trams like this.
