After much confusion to find the alternative place to meet as the original building had been affected by the earth quake, we located the bus and driver only to be told we were late!

Hi there, Thank you for your review. We are sorry you were not offered a portside pick up and the processing off the ship caused you to be delayed in reaching the Wellington i-Site. 2 1/2 hours is a short space of time to see the beautiful Wellington region and we are sorry you felt rushed. We wish you the... More

Sunday afternoon my husband and I took the city tour with driver Sharon and had a delightful experience. Sharon presented much interesting and detailed information with clarity and good humour. She put a lot of herself into the tour and it was obvious that she enjoys her work. Guests were treated with kindness and respect.

We were so glad we did the half day tour. The driver was exceptionally and very knowledgeable. Thus tour gave us the overview we needed to get our bearings. The first stop was a ride up the cable car, to the botanical gardens, parliament building, St. Paul's church, oriental parade, wahini maritime disaster, south coast seas, lyall bay, mount Victoria,...

The Wellington City Sights and Coastline tour is an excellent way of seeing the highlights in the city, the coastline and takes you up to Mt Victoria for some spectacular views. Driver and guide Patrick is very friendly and has a wealth of knowledge. Thank you for a great morning :)

Lucky me! I booked a city tour to find that I was the only guest. A cruise ship had been due, but was delayed by heavy seas, so it was quieter than expected for Wellington tour operators. And I had THREE guides, one experienced and two learner guide/drivers. I had a wonderful time with these 3 lovely people looking after... More

What a great little excursion. My spouse and I and our two twenty-something sons enjoyed the Craft Beer Tour immensely. We got an insider's peek at the Craft beer industry in Wellington. Besides the beverages some tasty sides were on offer. It was a great introduction to Wellington's fun side.
