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.

This is a fantastic way to see central Christchurch and also learn some of its history. From the very helpful receptionist to the humorous and informative driver and conductors the staff were great to adding to this experience.

Best priced look at the inner city.
I liked this. Good clear commentary. Just a relaxed pace. Loads of stops you can hop off at, and hop on again later
