We had a thoroughly enjoyable tour with our excellent guide John piloting a very comfortable Land Rover. John provided many highlights with his history of the area, views of the Kapiti coach, morning tea at Ruth Pretty's, Nga Manu Nature Reserve (birds), Beach Cafe for Fish and Chips and the Southward Museum of Cars being standouts.

Love the tour. Its a pity the weather was dull and drizzly. Great lunch. Love the visit to Ruth Pretty cottage and the off-the-road tour..great tour guide :) i am a solo traveller but the people on the bus are great sports..wish i can stay wee bit longer at the beach at the tail end of the tour. I am not a car fan but the visit tow the car museum was fun and wacky :)

The scenery was great and the Automobile Museum was fantastic. I only wish we had more time at the Auto Museum, so that I could have taken more photos.
