  • "Great Way to see Wellington"
    Fantastic guide, beautiful, sunny day, stunning city. The inner city is not very attractive,--which is only a 3 m2 area of the entire city. The hills and the suburbs are very beautiful. Lovely visit through the botanical gardens, nice ride on the cable car. Recommended tour.

  • "Highly Recommend"
    Great tour, worth every penny, driver was very friendly. Instruction was very clear and easy to locate the coach driver at port. Will recommend to friends. The big bonus being that we paid about half of what we would have paid on the cruise ship and paid in New Zealand Dollars, My wife and I saved over a 100 bucks between the two of us.
