Christchurch Restaurant Tram & Botanic Gardens

Enjoy a journey in style through the changing face of Christchurch’s city centre on board the beautifully restored heritage restaurant tram, the only one of its kind in New Zealand. This tour showcases Christchurch’s inner city vibrancy and heritage, truly a mix of the old and the new. Your friendly and knowledgeable driver will discuss the city, its landmarks and sights including Cathedral Junction, the Gothic-style Arts Centre, the Canterbury Museum and New Regent Street. Next, join the ‘Caterpillar’, an electric open-sided trolley bus for a guided tour through the Christchurch Botanic Gardens. Admire the wonderfully impressive gardens with their mixture of seasonal colours and array of plant life. View some of the best examples of native and exotic flora in New Zealand as well as New Zealand’s only World Peace Bell.
