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.

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

Wasn't sure what to expect when we turned up and it was a mini bus, instead of the normal open air buses. Turned out to be one of the best hop on hop off tours we've done!! The small bus allowed us access all over the city and up in the hills. BJ was an excellent guide with lots of... More

If you only have a short time in Wellington, this is the way to do it. You see all the main attractions, have time for photo shots and gain background knowledge on the city. You can then spend longer at the time or later on at any particular destination. I had a day to see all the sights and for... More

Never been in Wellington before? This is a good way to figure out what to come back to. I'm used to looking for a good walking/biking tour to introduce me to a city. However, this was a good change. Dean was our driver and was very knowledgeable and easy on the ears. If you want them to come by your... More
