I think this tour is the best way to visit Wellington, when you have few time there. I booked the tour in the internet and everything worked well. The tour guide (Nathan) was very communicative and attentive! I recommend this tour!

This city tour is an excellent way to get to most of the major attractions in Wellington. I've travelled quite a lot and will mostly do one of these hop-on, hop-off tours on my first day in a city, and this one is very good. The tickets are available from the visitor centre, and they run every half hour I... More

If you are accustomed to the usual bus tour with recorded information or rote recitals you will be pleasantly surprised by this tour. We were very lucky to have Todd as our guide and he made the tour the best we have done. He used his humour, passion and knowledge to make the trip interesting and different. Well worth doing.

I recently experienced the tour with my partner and it was amazing. We had Todd as our tour guide and he gave us so much information about the cities history and personal information he had as well. He was very interactive and it was such a pleasure and a laugh having him as our tour guide. I definitely recommend using... More

We had a great time with our tour guide Todd. We were unable to make our pickup time and Shawn was happy to call Todd to wait 15 minutes for us since we were the only passengers. Our tour guide was excellent and super friendly, sharing many interesting points and stories about the city. He was also happy to drop... More

We booked to go on this tour as a way of getting out to parts of Wellington that weren't in walking distance of where we were staying. It's important to note that this isn't your usual double decker bus hop on/off tour, but a minivan with a very knowledgeable driver instead. The need for the minivan becomes apparent once you...

We chose to do this tour sicne we only had one full day in Wellington and wanted to see as much as possible. I recommend looking at the stops in advance and finding out where you want to spend your time and what you can look at after the tour, because it only picks up once an hour and runs... More

The company uses small comfortable buses and provides a very friendly and personalized service. The tour was comprehensive and gives you the opportunity to hop off and see sights that you would like to investigate in detail. Our driver made a special trip with us as the only passengers to Zealandia and returned to pick us up right on the... More

This had just changed hands when we used it. Maybe a wee bit expensive but the driver (Bruce I think) was really helpful. Very informative about all sorts of things in Wellington
