Was really very enjoyable. Our guide Bruce knew his stuff and took us places where there were no others. The scenery was amazing and it was probably one of the best things we did in our stay in Wellington.

Highly recommend

Ended up with a solo tour and got to see more than you could ever ask for. Stunning views from peaks on both the east and west sides of town. A fantastic way to see as much of Wellington as you can in a short period of time. Great, engaging guide who loved answering questions.

Windy Wellington lived up to its name. Great views from the lookouts and a very knowledgeable driver.
I would definitely recommend this tour as a first up to do as it gives you an overall picture of Wellington and where your interests may lie.

Very helpful tour to show us around Wellington and point out where the museums and other popular things were, as well as seeing incredible views from Mt Victoria. Great to see what there is to do and get an overall view of the city if you're short on time
