Christchurch Gondola, Christchurch Reviews
Great for travelers to see both Christchurch city and over into banks peninsula on the other side. If you are planning on going outside you may want to have a wind proof jacket and warm clothes. The views I think are great so make sure you bring a camera! A few walking tracks up the top so bring a lunch and make a day of it!
Very nice place to see 180 degrees panoramas of Christchurch and Lyttelton harbour. The views are simply fantastic and on a clear day you can see snow capped mountains on the West. The place could be very busy so expect to wait in a line for gondola (only 4 adult per gondola). Time Tunnel is not much of a fun. Cafe has decent food. If you have time try walk down by the walking track. It’s steep, but still easy to do.
The views are just magical on both sides. The food is nice and what you would expect from this type of place. We enjoyed the time tunnel and the couple of hours spent admiring the views.
This is a great place to head to if you have some time to spend. I'd suggest walking either up or down to extend the experience as the trip up is only 5-10 minutes. The walk is approx 40 mins. There is a cafe and a 'History of Christchurch' ride in the building at the top of the hill. Food is OK but nothing special and quite pricey. Cost of the ride is getting up there but the view from the top is awesome.
We had a nice ride up the hill with great views out over Christchurch. Had coffee and date scones. Service was very good. Unfortunately the clouds were quite low so it was a bit hazy so the views were as good as they could be. We could still see Lyttelton harbour across to Diamond harbour and also Christchurch
