Well worth seeing all the 'highlights'
, Nov 2019
Our tour was exactly as described - seeing 'highlights'. Only very short period of time at each of the location spots was great as it gave you a brief look at what there is as it is a big area to cover in such a short time. It allowed us to see what we would like to come back and see again, but with more time. Our driver (Howard) was great - very informative and friendly. The only disappointing aspect would be the cable car ride - not very exciting we have to say.

Hi Roving... Thanks for the feedback, pleased you enjoyed this highlights tour and sorry the Cable Car ride was not what you expected. People sometimes expect an "alpine" style cable car high above the slopes, well Wellington Cable Car is not that, but a rail car on a very steep grade pulled by a cable, and it keeps its wheels very firmly on the ground, which we must say is to be recommended in the earthquake prone city of Wellington. For excitement i would suggest the Cable car up to Mont Blanc in the French/Italian alps, that one certainly made my knees shake!

Enjoyed the tour overall. Was a little rushed at a few spots, but overall would recommend. Easy to get to from ship. Tour guide was knowledgeable.
Well Done

Our guide was knowledgeable and shared his experiences living in the area. The tour was conducted at a reasonable pace and we were given time to contemplate where we were, as opposed to some rush here and there tours. It suited our travel preferences.
Had a pretty good day

Had a good day in Wellington. felt a little rushed though in some spots. But all in all a good day. Got to go to a Lord of the rings which my wife loved.

Covers the basic sites
, Jan 2019
Good tour to cover the basic sites of Wellington. Some stops seem related to kick backs or souvenir shop and lunch stop. Would have preferred more locations of interest as kids lost engagement.
Great Museum

This was an excellent tour. I was glad that we had enough time in the best museum ever. The WW I display was amazing. The ship had to depart early because of tide conditions so we had to be careful with our time. But, our tour guide made everything wonderful. Great.
