I was on my own ....just me and Wally Hammond (and yes he is related to the cricketer - which made my day as I love cricket)! Had a great private tour of the city, nice and relaxed and very informative.

Thanks Wally !!

“Terrific overview of the city”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

We booked a 2 hour city tour with Hammonds and had an awesome time. In the short time we had a drive through some interesting areas, with a very informative commentary from the driver who was passionate about his city. The view from Mt Victoria gives great view of the city and harbour and the drive back down showcases some of the amazing ingenuity as people have built house on the sides of very steep slopes.

“Palliser Bay day trip gets seal of approval”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

An extremely enjoyable day and the best seal-spotting ever. Starts with some spectacular Lord of the Rings scenery (and a VERY hairy walk across a loooong swinging bridge) and ends with an enjoyable wine-tasting in the Martinborough wine district, taking in some cute little towns along the way. Lunch in the old pub at Lake Ferry was an enjoyable experience and the fresh scallops were delicious. The best part was the chance to get up close and personal with seals of all ages, from super-cute newborns to angst-ridden teens, grumpy old men and everything in between. Highly recommended.
