South Island tours 'are entertaining'

Article content

8 December 2009

Taking a trip on the Christchurch tram when visiting New Zealand should not be missed, it has been claimed.

Writing for Suite 101, Lyn Rasmussen said the South Island attraction provides an "entertaining tour" of the city.

She stated: "With outstanding heritage sites, boutique shopping, parks and gardens and the tranquil Avon River to explore, be prepared for the '30-minute' loop to extend into several hours."

Ms Rasmussen added that visitors can get off the vehicle at one of 11 stops and then rejoin at their leisure, allowing them maximum flexibility to enjoy the local sights.

Those who prefer to travel by water were advised to climb aboard one of the guided punts available on the Avon River, which offer "the most tranquil" means of exploring the city.

Journey etc recently claimed New Zealand provides tourists with one of the top spots in the world for peace and quiet, largely down to its low population.
