Ok so the actual tour it's self is great. Our driver though decided to do a detour past his house because he forgot his cord and he decided to make it all about him and his acting career. Sorry. I wanted to hear more about the culture and history of New Zealand not lord of the rings and what characters... More

This is unlike other hop-on/hop-off tours in other cities. The buses here is just a van (a good thing considering Wellington streets). The main pick-up is right downtown at the i-Site Center. You get a tour of the main places in Wellington with great commentary from the driver. At 3 stops (Mt. Victoria, top of the cable car, & Old... More

As our family (aged from 10 to 80) filled the 11 seater bus on the ‘Wellington Hop On Hop Off’ tour, our driver Peter was able to turn it into a customised tour. This suited the interests of our group for the two hours. From the initial contact with Emory, all staff were very helpful. Peter was a very interesting... More

If you don't have a car, this is the way to see the city. However, while you can hop on and off, the bus only runs once an hour so you are so confined to that limited time frame if you do choose to hop off. Also, the last pick up at any stop is about 3:30, so again, you... More

Wonderful way to get a feeling for the city and to learn your way around. The bus takes you from the sea shore to one of the highest points in the city. Be sure get off and have lunch at the museum.

We took this tour and were really impressed. The small bus was ideal for the areas, the divers Todd and John were great, knowledgable , good sense of humour, nothing was a trouble for them. Great service, and itinerary, excellent day out. The best hop on hop off we have ever done mostly because of the personal attention, small numbers... More

We had an interesting guide who knew quite a lot about the film industry, which for NewZealand is based in Wellington, also about the history of the town and geology. It was such a useful tour as it took us round the whole of the town, we visited two of the hilly areas. St. Paul's church which was marvellous, the... More

This is not quite like other hop on hop off bus tours as you are unable to stay on all day, just one tour. Most stops are not suitable to get off at and you have to keep the drivers informed of how long you will be at a certain destination which is a little restricting. The route, however, is... More

This was all the places we wanted to go without renting a car or walking for days up and down STEEP hills and we live in the mountains of Colorado! It was informative and we had a local Kiwi guide that was excellent. We stopped several times for photos and loved it all!
