This combo was a really good but we picked up our tickets from the ticket office in Christchurch which was easy to find ( just follow the tram lines) we then we planned to take the tram first you do t have to do all three in one day you can spread them over your stay. The tram was a 50 min round trip you can hop on hop off anywhere along the line on your chosen day the driver gave us all the history of each place we stopped at. we stayed on to check out the different places the hopped on and off at our choices from our hotel the ibis we found actually walk to any of the places to all very close. The punt ride you will get a message to call them to book your time which we did recommend you do this to avoid disappointment only booked rides were available when we arrived the punts were fully booked. this for me was the best of the three but they all came pretty close to each other to go down the river was so relaxing and our punt driver was so informative and funny the gondola is a must

We came on a cruise and had pre-booked this activity - and were so glad we did. We had a fabulous time in Christchurch. The trams are beautiful and take you around all the best bits of the city. We had to change the time of our punt but all the staff were so helpful and it was a really relaxing way to spend some time. We never made it to the Gondola, which was a shame. Maybe next time.
