I had a nice experience touring Wellington with Hop n Hoff. The vehicle was big enough and the tour guy was a cool cat. They were in continuous communication with me starting from my pick-up till I was dropped after the tour. I would definitely like to recommend them as all in all it has been a pleasant experience for... More

From a mini bus view it's very difficult to see items which the driver is pointing out due to the window height. All stops not easily identified or pointed out and not identified by driver. Even thought driver said bus would be locked, we left our bag in the bus whilst visiting one of the 3 photo place's, for us... More

Dear Lea, Our apologies that you did not have a good experience. Responding to your concerns in turn: - Our mini-buses are factory made for carrying paying tour passengers and we do try to make sure everyone can see the sights, but again apologies your view was impaired. - Regarding the stops, we do not necessarily stop at every stop,...

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..........

Hi John, I'm extremely sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your tour with us. Yes, it is different than other hop on hop off tours, deliberately so: - We use smaller minibuses because it allows us to take a fantastic route on Wellington's steep and narrow streets. - We don't stop at every stop, unless someone wants to...

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
