What a fantastic day, we had a charismatic host Nathan, who made the day all about us. The day was tailored to our wants, needs, and desires. Wellington is such a beautiful city with its unusual layout and quirkiness, Nathan is very passionate about his city and it rubbed off. I initially picked this tour just to fill in a day but I was very wrong, I learnt so much while having fun and got to see so many things that I never would have. We stopped off at a beautiful little cafe by the beach for lunch, went to the Weta studios, Mt Victoria lookout, Parliament and Beehive buildings, Te Papa, Wellington Zoo, cable car, and St Paul's Cathedral. We also stopped off at some unusual spots for some photo opportunities. I cant thank Nathan enough for a warm welcome to Wellington and showing us his wonderful city in a beatiful new airconditioned mini van.

Very nice tour, good guide/driver. Bit of a walk from port shuttle bus drop off to get to the I site to pick up the tour, but doable for us slow pokes. There were at least 8 stops to hop off/on, with about an hour in between pick ups. We really loved the museum Te Papa, which is a not to be missed national treasure.
We also took the cable car ride, just for fun, up to the botanical gardens and back down. Fun1

The tour itself was excellent as was the driver,but the vehicle minibus didn't offer very good views as you couldn't see much. But it was still a good way to have an overview of the city. Both the parliament buildings and the Te Papa museum are a must while in Wellington
