Did the Gondola ride with the family and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were lucky to have a perfect clear day so the views were picture postcard. The shuttle from the Canterbury museum was convenient. A very enjoyable few hours.

Book this at the ISite office in downtown, where to can also avail the return bus trip to /fro the foot of the gondola. The views from the top of Littlton are breathtaking. There is restaurant at the top, and a souvenir shop.

The place was so amazing. Worth of money. The staffs are nice and friendly. For sure we will be back. The secret is to book the activities earlier and youll get a cheaper rate. :)
