If you’d like to check out great cafés, restaurants and shops, disembark at chic Courtenay Place, bohemian Cuba Precinct or the gorgeous waterfront around Oriental Bay. Wellington offers so much to explore, you may not want to leave.

Awesome !!!

This tour was amazing!

This was okay. Not a regular hoho bus. It was a mini van that did the route because the streets are too narrow for a big bus. The driver did give commentary. We stayed on for the entire route then left at the stop by the ship. I wondered what would happen if too many people hopped off and then all tried to get back on at the same stop? Also, it was a rather long walk to where you pick up the bus and the directions were very confusing. We had to stop and ask people for help three times to find the meeting spot.

Once we found the bus, we had a really good time. The city of Wellington had wonderful volunteers who helped us as we were walking along. The botanical gardens were spectacular! Don't miss the Te Papa museum. It was so interesting and was free. Decided not to try the cable car.

HiEasy to access from cruise terminal We went to the top of the hill down and up the funicular,coffee up top in a cute cafe,then walked down through the Botanical Gardens. Lovely gardens but quite a hike in the rather hot and windy weather on the day.Caught the bus again and listened to the commentary as we saw the sights,back to town.Cheap and easy for cruisers.

Excellent way to see Wellington. All drivers very informative. Even if weather inclement, there will be enough sheltered activities to enjoy.

, Mar 2018

The driver was very knowledgeable and friendly. The tour covered all the old and new areas of the city which was very handy to see if there were any places to visit that had not already been seen. Definitely the best way to see the highlinghts.
