    What to Expect
    Board the Christchurch Tramway at any of the 17 stops in the city center and journey in style. The restored vintage trams depart daily every 15–20 minutes and you can use your ticket to hop on and hop off anywhere along the newly extended route.

    The 50-minute circuit starts at Cathedral Junction and travels through Cathedral Square before passing the Avon River, Re:START Mall, and High Street. From here, the tram rejoins a loop and passes by the Canterbury Museum, Hagley Park, Victoria Square, and New Regent Street. Stops include Punting on the Avon and the Christchurch Botanic Gardens.

    Hear live commentary on the sights while you learn about the heritage and changing face of Christchurch. Knowledgeable drivers inform you about the city and its local landmarks along the way.

    We loved the tram tour, we received really clear information about the foundation of the city and how it is recovering after the earthquake. Our tour guide was polite and funny, taking extra care to make sure we had a good time.

    I did the brief circuit (approximately 45 minutes). This was a great introduction to the downtown area of Christchurch. The driver was knowledgeable and the tram comfortable. Easy on and off.
