What to expect
Make your way to the Christchurch Botanic Gardens to board an electric-powered caterpillar bus for your open-top tour through the 52-acre (21-hectare) preserve, situated between Hagley Park and the Avon River. During the approx. 1-hour ride, hear live commentary as you learn about culinary and medicinal herbs, tropical plants, and more. Hop off at frequent stops to explore the glass conservatories and see some of the 250 types of roses in two rose gardens. When booking, you have the option of four tour upgrades, which are detailed in the Itinerary section. If you wish, combine your exploration of the Christchurch Botanic Gardens with a hop-on hop-off city sightseeing tour on the meticulously restored Christchurch Tram (see list of stops below). Alternatively, opt to include a ride on the Christchurch Gondola, Avon River punting or a combination of all of the above. Tram stops: • Cathedral Junction • Cathedral Square • Mill Island • Re:START Mall • Ballantynes • The Crossing • Manchester Street • High Street • City Punting • Art Gallery • Worcester Boulevard • Museum and Botanic Gardens • Hagley Park Corner • Cramner Square • Casino • Victoria Square • New Regent Street

A good way to see and understand the Botanic Gardens
Feb 2020
We were pleasantly surprised by the knowledgeable driver,Fay, who drove the electric Caterpillar Shuttle.
She gave a great insight into the origins, changes and running of the Gardens.
Plus the types of plants and where they originated from.

Fun but not *needed* to see gardens
Feb 2019
The tour around the garden is, as advertised; you can hop on and off at will, and the guides are VERY nice (but it's New Zealand, EVERYONE is VERY nice) and very well informed about the gardens ... but the fact is that the area just isn't that big and, unless you have trouble walking, you can just as easily walk yourself around the area.

Cute tour
Oct 2018
This is a lovely tour of the amazing gardens in Christchurch. The guide was funny and knew a lot about the types of plants and trees. She wasn't overbearing, though. The bus went slow enough that you could see everything. It was great that the tour let you hop off and take photos. Highly recommend!!

Lovey way to see the town
Jun 2018 • Couples
We done the tram to take us around the town to get our bearings. All the staff where extremely helpful and pleasant to talk to, great way to get about Christchurch.
We then took a mini bus up to the gondola, but unfortunately it was all clouded in and could not see much. Later on we went on the Avon river punting and it was very worthwhile our guide was very informative. A very relaxing experience.

A total shambles
Feb 2018 • Couples
This review relates only to the Botanic gardens tour. First the museum staff told us we couldn’t book- just turn up and pay the driver. When we arrived 15 minutes before the tour we found others did have tickets so we were directed to the information centre to buy them. We found the tickets were untimed, so we had to rejoin the queue. There turned out to be only 10 places available, so we were forced to wait an hour for the next tour in the hot sun with no seats and no water. If they only have10 places available why can’t they just sell 10 timed tickets for that time and then move on to the next hour? Then at least people can get a coffee instead of standing in a queue for an hour. It is about time these people learned how to run a visitor attraction.

Ticks all the boxes
Nov 2017 • Couples
Gondola staff were fantastic in sorting out pre-booked pass for combined tour. Gondola was a great way to get an overview. Tram was fantastic and Tom the driver was very informative on the sights and the city generally. Punting on the Avon was beautiful and relaxing and Jean, the punter had lots of information. Botanic Gardens tour was beautiful and Faye the guide very knowledgable and helpful
