Unique in the world of hop on hop off tours: Hop on board one of our small minibuses and traverse Wellington's winding streets on our intimate and informative two hour guided tour. Soak up breathtaking views, fascinating architecture, eclectic suburbs and beautiful coastal scenery while our local Guides tell you all about Wellington's unique culture, history and city life. Enjoy our 4 photo stops where you can get off and explore, and then get back on the same minibus 5 minutes later. And we have handpicked the best hop off and hop on stops if you want to enjoy any of Wellington's iconic attractions for an hour or two. Our personalised service means we always know where you have hopped off and when you want to be picked up again. We depart daily from the city i-SITE Visitor Centre bus stop on the hour from 10am to 2pm. Complimentary pickup from your Wellington city location is available. Don't just see Wellington, EXPERIENCE it.

At the start, let me say that the operators were friendly and generally curtious. Thank you for that. For the tour itself however, we have a different view indeed. While it is always a great idea to gain that initial viewing around a new city, I do find it bizarre and difficult to comprehend the methodology behind this tour in... More

WellingtonTour, Owner at Wellington Hop On Hop Off Guided Tours, responded to this review

Hi Govaire, My sincere apologies that you did not enjoy your experience with us. Yes, our tours do pack a lot in 2 hours. Our customers regularly tell us that 2 hours is the right amount of time and taking any part out of our tour would be a great shame (in our view!). It is possible that you would... More

Wellington has a number of key attractions and view points so starting your stay with the hop-on mini bus tour gives you a chance to make a note of what to come back to see in more detail. All the staff were very pleasant. The driver was very jolly and bursting with information delivered with lots of humour. The i-SITE... More

Hi Brian, so glad you enjoyed Wellington and your Tour with us. If you could be so kind, we would be very interested in knowing what we (or Wellington!) could have done to make your Tour a 5/5? Thanks, Shawn More

We arrived on a Cruise Ship and we only had one day in Wellington, so this was a fantastic way to see Wellington. We had a great photo stop at Mt Victoria, and when we arrived at Weta Caves, we decided to do a behind the scenes tour there. We had a fantastic time at the Caves and then we... More

What a great way to see the best of Wellington. These small 12-14 seater people movers take you in a 2 hour circuit of Wellington allowing you to get off and explore those that appeal to you and be picked up by the next bus. The guides are knowledgeable and friendly always ready to give extra information and advice about... More

While on our cruise to New Zealand we had pre booked the Wellington Hop on Hop off Guided tours. A small van that carried 10 of us plus our local guide/driver. Our driver was extraordinary and such a knowledgeable man on his beloved city. This tour was for 2 hours but you could get off and on if you wish.... More

We had a too short stay in Wellington so we chose this small, more personal, tour as it seemed to hit all the highlights, however, I found the tour was too rushed. We whizzed by most of the sights with only 3 five-minute stops for scenic photos and a longer stop at the WETA Caves (but not enough time to... More

A great experience and a fantastic way to see just some of Wellington. Our tour guide was terrific, very knowledgable and very witty. Even went out of his way to help an elderly gent on the bus find an optometrist shop to get his glasses fixed. The mini bus is a better way to get around. Highly recommend .

Smaller vans with only 12 or so passengers was nice. WETA cave stop was long enough for a few pictures and souvenir purchases. Drivers were knowledgeable and helpful.
