What people are saying about Christchurch Botanic Gardens

me and my mum had a wonderful time on the tran , all the conductors and drivers were spontaneous & very knowledgeable giving us a tour around Christchurch cbd ' I highly recommend using the tram when travelling around town , there was never a dull moment , each person on all 3 trams were an absolute delight. for our first experience visiting Christchurch it was the BEST !

The all day pass meant you could hop on or off at any one of the stops, then hop back on once you were ready. The conducters were awesome.

A great unique experience that gave a good insight into the city. The tram driver was most helpful,and knowledgeable.

Charming way to enjoy history. Tram impeccably maintained.

A great way to see the city with excellent commentary
