Christchurch Gondola Reviews & Ratings
1 of the best attraction in Christchurch. The climb is quite steep and the view up there is sensational. Pack up your big puffy jackets as it's quite windy and chilly up there. Food from the restaurant is of decent quality, they also sell local made beer! There's also a walking trail around which I'll highly recommend
Beautiful 😍 great experience we had a fantastic time. Spectacular views best visited on a fine day
A must do when in Christchurch! Great views on the way up and down but amazing views from up top at the restaurant. A bonus time tour which was fun. Delicious food at the restaurant and great gift shop. An hour or two very well spent!
A must do , the Christchurch, Gondola offers stunning 360 d views of Christchurch, including the snow covered Southern Alps , the rugged amazing landscape of Banks Peninsula, , Lyttleton harbour and Pacific Ocean. There is a time tunnel that takes you to a journey millions of years ago toilets, souvenir shops and a restaurant. You can get out of the shop to explore your surrounding and soak in on the views. You can choose to walk down the Bridle Path instead of talking the cable car. It's great exercise!😊
I always take overseas visitors here. Excellent views and brief but interesting presentation of history of Canterbury in time tunnel.
