  • A very good tour with excellent driver/guide. he took us to all the sights and knew the best ones. I have been here twice before and this was the best of similar tours I have done here.

  • sympa à faire pour visiter la ville voir ses plus belles attractions, les chauffeurs sont très agréables

  • Great little tour when you are short on time. My only wish is that it would run longer in the afternoon

  • This was a little disappointing as the co ordination of the buses was lengthy. The audio on the bus was also poor.

  • Small bus, but got some good photos from elevated areas. Ship shuttle drops you right at the I-site location, but was chilly waiting for our tour time. You have to start at a given time, then can get off and on afterward.

  • The tour was OK, but it was hard to understand the commentary on these tours.

  • Windy Wellington. The best Hop-on-hop-off ever with our guide and only 8 passengers. A knowledgable gentleman who offered excellent commentary and a welcome measure of humor. A former investment professional, we all were delighted that he chose to offer his services to Viator and make our visit memorable.

  • Excellent tour very friendly and knowledge staff.. Best way to see Wellington.

  • Excellent tour - on time, informative, good value

  • This would have been better for us if the weather had cooperated. It is definitely a great way to visit many of Wellington's attractions. We had a rainy time in Wellington so we did not stay very long or did not get off at many of the places.
