Having only half a day in Wellington, we found this tour perfect for what we wanted to see. The driver Glenn was entertaining and nice. He dropped us off at the bottom of the cable car, then picked us up at the top after we explored the Botanical Gardens. We saw highlights of the city and the lookout at Mt Victoria. Exactly what I was hoping for. I don't think I could have seen nearly as much on my own.

Caught the 10am tour. Collected from our accomodation by big coach At 9.30 which was good. Taken to Info centre to collect others and pay. Normally $55/couple. Seniors $50. 10 venues visited of which only 4 able to get off the bus. The botanic gardens only food and toilet stop. Tour very slow due to big coach and narrow streets. Commentary consisted of pre made audio and very little driver commentary. Our tour had 3 visitor couples and group of volunteer guideS who initially talked so loud couldn’t hear the audio. Old St Paul’s church (10min) the small part of botanic gardens (30 min) and top of Mt Victoria (10min) were the highlights for the little time allocated remainder of time and other venues was slow driving. Suggest mini bus with max 8-10 people with driver talking plus more interesting locations would be better. Would I recommend this tour NO. Rate 5.10

It was an interesting day. The driver was great...very knowledgable of the area. We stopped at quite a few places. We were only in Wellington for one day so it was great to see the major attractions...and we got to relax while someone else negotiated the traffic. Money well spent.

I recently did the Hammonds tour of Wellington and could not recommend it more. Our driver Rob was very friendly, had a great sense of humour and filled us with lots of interesting facts about this beautiful city. 2 1/2 hours is more than enough time to get a good overview of Wellington. You get to see all the big tourist spots and if you get the tour on a good day (unfortunately it was raining on the day I did it), the sunny views at the top of Mt Victoria would definitely spruce up your photo album! I strongly recommend if you are in the Wellington area visiting, you can buy tickets from the i-site and the tours run daily!
