The best way to see the inner city

Christchurch Tramway is a quality inner city tour experience that combines the heritage of the trams, attractions and historic buildings with the culture of the Garden City. The beautifully restored heritage trams are also available for cocktail functions or a unique dining experience on the Christchurch Tramway Restaurant.
Also check out our tram gondola or punting combo or why not visit all three attractions on out Grand Tour bus.

Guides (Tram drivers) were very helpful and knowledgable. Photos from South Pole exhibit (Scott and Shackleton) were beyond description (Queens private collection).

Great way to get around the city and see the sights. We were on a coach tour that arrived in Christchurch on Boxing Day. There was yet another earth tremor during the night so trams were not running that day. However, they were running when we came back a few days later. Driver came down and spoke to passengers at the start of the ride.
