Wet windy Wellington, wait don't stay inside,take a hop on, hop off tour. Learnt a lot about Wellington from our driver/guide Dean. Saw places we wouldn't have gone to as we didn't have a car and the weather was WINDY WET and COLD. Well worth it. Thank you Dean for going the extra mile, loved the museum.

I had the opportunity to travel around the world and outside of Melbourne, where the tour is free, everywhere paying a fee. Nowhere in the world, where I went, I met a tour more attractive than this. Perhaps the story of Todd Rippon and passion Plateaus role playing, I did not get off anywhere you choose and do 2 laps,... More

This tour company was fantastic - small busses with personal attention from the local, knowledgeable guide. The photo stops allowed for a more complete tour because we were able to get off, see the sights, take our photos and return to the tour without using an entire hour for the stop. The company is very well organized, guides let the... More

this hop on hop off bus is small and personal. They keep track of where customers get off so no one ends up stranded. The commentary was good too. Good value.

Unlike many cities where the hop-on-hop-off tours are on large buses, this tour is on a small van (about 10 people). We began the tour at the visitor information center at Civic Square. The tour covered most sights in Wellington, allowing for several stops for pictures including Mount Victoria and Kelburn at the top of the Cable Car. It was... More

Great way to see the city. Good informative drivers. Easy to book and find bus stops. One bus driver did skip going past one of the sights because no-one wanted to get off there ....... Not so happy about that.

This is a mini bus on a circuit tour of Wellington. Check out the excellent web site which shows the route and schedules. It is not the typical hop on hop off that you would find in NYC or London/Paris, but from a cruise ship explorer, it is a great way to see Wellington. Check out the stops for places... More
