There were 2 vehicles/drivers on this tour. The one we got was new- very nice, but not very informative. I rode back to the ship from the museum with the other driver/guide, and learned more on that short trip than I had in the hours with our guide.

We had the BEST tour guide in Todd. He helped us enjoy a fantastic journey around Wellington with his knowledge of the area. Todd helped us tweak our excursion to help some of us see some of the area a little longer than we were scheduled. This was the best excursion on our trip. Thank you Todd.

This tour was not as promised. We didnt get to the Roxy Cinema. All we did was stop for five seconds so took a photo of it through the bus window. The Fish and Chip restaurant was nice but this was in place of the Roxy Cinema for lunch and the tram was good but over with very quickly. We had to wait for the driver longer than it took the tram to go down the hill. We only had ten minutes at the Weta Gift shop. Not a very impressive tour. The driver was more interested in showing us where he went to school, where his first job was and pointed our every Uber taxi as he was a part-time Uber driver. Hardly what we paid to learn about on the tour.

Excellent trip and much nicer with a small group. Ian our guide from Shoretrips was great and very knowledgeable and showed us every part of Wellington which was far more than we expected. I would definitely recommend this trip and this tour company.

We were glad we chose the small group tour. This was our last tour on our cruise to NZ and after Dunedin, Akaroa, Christchurch and Picton we thought Wellington lacked any real wow factor. While the tour was OK and the guide Ian was good unfortunately we found Wellington was just another city.
The cable car was good as were the views and general scenery. We are not Lord of the rings fans so for us there was too much time spent at WETA,
Our lunch stop was at a lovely stop along the coast. One couple ordered Fush and chups which was more like chups and fush their 2 identical meals turned out to be1 large and 1 small!
We ordered 2 roast vegetable meals that again turned out to be 1 large and 1 small! My vegetables were not roasted at all but raw!!
Eventually we received some compensation for the poor meals but the lunch was disappointing.
To be fair the tour did deliver what was advertised at a reasonable cost. It was the best available choice for us but we went back to our cruise feeling somewhat underwhelmed.

Our driver Andrew was fantastic. Because we had the whole 12 x spots on tour he was a bit more flexible and accommodating to work in with our requests and did a great job on the day. We managed to fit in as much as we could while still having a fantastic lunch by the sea side at a quaint little cafe.
