1) It was a small cramped vehicle 2) it rarely stopped as no one was getting off 3) It only runs on the hour despite costing the same as the much better Auckland tour 4) We didn't have Todd..........

The tour is quite ambitious: all points of interest are covered with a cozy minibus. Unfortunately instead of a recorded tour (the audio does not work that morning), our driver becomes a guide for the day: not much information, strict minimum and quick ride around town. not worth the $45.00 fee!!!! Seriously, I would have great concern to recommend the... More

It is not the normal hop on hop off, use smaller vechicles and they only run every hour, it was ok but they do not run very late either, so u are very limited in what you can do, not worth the 45 dollars

We were only in Wellington for a day and so decided to do this tour to maximise our sightseeing experience. We are so glad we did! It is the best way to get a quick introduction to the city and its landmarks and history. A big thank you to our fantastic guide Colin who was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. My... More

Different for the 'usual' hop-on hop-off tour, this tour is completed in a much smaller bus and is a lot more boutique. We had already spent a couple of days in Wellington, so decided to just complete the tour in 1 loop. Very much enjoyed the informal style of our guide who told us all the relevant tour points but...

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
