Make the most of your time in Christchurch with a pass featuring 4 of the city's top attractions. Head out for sightseeing at your leisure with a hop-on hop-off tram ticket, soak up more city views with punting and gondola rides, and enjoy a guided tour of the spectacular Botanic Gardens.

Christchurch Tram
Step onto a restored vintage tram at Cathedral Junction for a ride that combines history, sightseeing, and the freedom to explore at your own pace. As you roll past key landmarks, listen to your friendly driver's titbits about the city, and disembark at any of the 17 stops to visit the attractions of your choice. When you're ready, simply board the tram again to continue your ride. With a 24-hour pass, it's easy to make the most of a day in the city.

Punting on the Avon
Discover Christchurch from a different perspective as a seasoned punter in traditional Edwardian garb propels you along the serene Avon River. Choose your departure point and glide out in a flat-bottomed boat. Travel through the Christchurch Botanic Gardens to admire the city's famous flora, or wind your way through the burgeoning developments in the heart of the city.

Christchurch Gondola
Make your way to Heathcote Valley for a spectacular gondola ride with 360-degree views over Christchurch and its surroundings. As your gondola climbs over 1,640 feet (500 metre) into the Port Hills, gaze out from the panoramic windows at the city skyline, the Canterbury Plains, and the Southern Alps all the way to Lyttleton Harbour and Banks Peninsula. At the summit, you can disembark for a ride through history in the Time Tunnel, relax in the café, or explore the area's variety of walking trails.

Botanic Gardens Tour
Discover one of New Zealand's finest collections of indigenous and exotic plants as you tour the 52-acre (21-ha) Christchurch Botanic Gardens in an eco-friendly electric vehicle. While you ride through immaculate gardens showcasing species from all around the world, your guide points out seasonal blooms and shares the park's 150-year history. Stay on board for the entire journey, or hop on and off at any of several stops to get a closer look at the attractions that interest you most.

As we arrived in Christchurch late we couldn't use on the "day we booked" but thankfully the ticket is fully flexible and could be redeemed the next day instead. All activities except the gondola are central. If you haven't got a car then you can catch a shuttle bus for an additional cost to get to the gondola where you will see spectacular scenery.
