Unique in the world of hop on hop off tours: Hop on board one of our small minibuses and traverse Wellington's winding streets on our intimate and informative two hour guided tour. Soak up breathtaking views, fascinating architecture, eclectic suburbs and beautiful coastal scenery while our local Guides tell you all about Wellington's unique culture, history and city life. Enjoy our 4 photo stops where you can get off and explore, and then get back on the same minibus 5 minutes later. And we have handpicked the best hop off and hop on stops if you want to enjoy any of Wellington's iconic attractions for an hour or two. Our personalised service means we always know where you have hopped off and when you want to be picked up again. We depart daily from the city i-SITE Visitor Centre bus stop on the hour from 10am to 2pm. Complimentary pickup from your Wellington city location is available. Don't just see Wellington, EXPERIENCE it.

We have been on many hop on, hop off tours in many cities and this was very different. Not the typical double decker bus with a pre-recorded narrative but a small van for about 12-15 people with an interactive driver/narrator. We found it very informative and great to have the interaction. Plus, we stopped at several stops where we could... More

Had to wait over an hour before we could get on a bus to start the tour, then at one stop had three bus front before they could accommodate us. There were two ships in town so why not have more buses. We did not even get to complete the loop, a lot of money for a very poor service

Buses are too small which leads to long - one hour waiting times. Some of the drivers are terrible. Better to organise taxis. Closes at 4.00.

This really is a great tour for getting a sense of Wellington if short on time. We stayed on for pretty much the whole trip as we had done a few bits the day before. It is reasonably priced and definitely the way to see Wellington - easy.

Not your traditional hop on off bus as you go around once on a small bus but you can get on and off wherever. Our driver Alan was a fount of knowledge and he gave out information the whole way. As a first day in Wellington it gave us a great overview for further investigation later. We stopped off for... More

This tour covered all the great sights of Wellington. The driver was friendly and full of interesting facts. We could get on and off pick up 1hour later and continue on. Small groups max 9so very personal.

They promised to pick us up at the hotel, which we didn't know, but was a five minute walk away from their main pick up. We booked through the concierge on arrival at the Museum Art Hotel the evening before - we only had one day in Wellington and wanted to make the most of it. The concierge rang them... More

Small bus (van), about 8 of us on the day. Personalised, friendly. Able to navigate the small winding streets better than any large vehicle. The range of sites, surburbia, city and major attractions was just right. This gave us a really (!) good feel for the geography of Wellington, as well as places and things we would want to do...

Chose this tour as we only had 1 day to spare. Took us to 17 notable sights with 4 hop on/hop off points. Great way to see the best of the city with good commentary along the way. Although it rained all day, the tour was most informative. A great way to select places that you might want to visit... More

Unfortunately, the best way to see the highlights of this City is with the Wellington Hop on Hop off tour. I have only one complaint about this tour which I shall save until the end of my comments. To be honest the actual tour was as expected, except for 1 surprise. The tour driver was friendly and helpful. He answered... More
