1. Christchurch Gondola and Tram City Tour Combo

Climb aboard the Christchurch Gondola cable car and enjoy spectacular 360-degree views across the Canterbury Plains and Southern Alps as you glide across the slopes of Mount Cavendish in the Port Hills. See as far as the city and harbor as you ride up to the summit 445 meters above sea level. Make use of the facilities at the top, such as the Time Tunnel ride, a dramatic reconstruction of the history of the region. Revive your spirits at the Red Rock Café before or after going for a walk or bike ride along the many nature trails. Take a unique sightseeing tour of the inner city aboard an antique tram as the driver provides a live and entertaining commentary. A full circuit takes 50 minutes and includes 17 stops, where you can hop on and off as often as you wish. Visit the Christchurch Botanic Gardens, Cathedral Junction, Canterbury Museum, and much more.

Excellent tour, we collected the tickets from the Gondola. Views were fabulous at the top. Caught the bus right outside to go into Christchurch centre, one of the best hop on hop off tours we have done. Very informative driver and conductor.

I highly recommend this fun ride. I was quite excited to ride on such a lovely old tram -so well restored. The driver was very informative and friendly. This is such a great way to sightsee, as you can hop on or off without any fuss.

I had a limited amount of time in Christchurch and the Gondola and Tram City Combo provided me with the opportunity to maximise what I saw whilst there. The two experiences were easy to navigate. Would highly recommend.

Excellent way to see Christchurch. Ennjoyable gondola ride but need car or public bus to get there so allow enough time for this great experience. Lyttleton is lovely town beside gondola worth visiting too❤️

Great communication on how/where to collect pre paid tickets. Tram ride was very interesting and Gondola views were fantastic.
