You can hop off at any of the 11 stops to explore points of interest such as Mt Victoria Lookout, Wellington Zoo, Wellington Botanic Garden or the Te Papa museum on your own. Your guide points out sights such as Parliament & Old St Paul’s Church and the Cable Car on this small-group tour.

  • Hear informative commentary onboard the minivan from your friendly and knowledgeable guide
Start your hop-on hop-off minivan tour at the Wellington i-Site Visitor Centre. Your guide makes a brief photo stop at Mt Victoria, but you can disembark at any of the 11 stops to visit a site in more depth on your own.
View interactive exhibits on Maori culture at the Te Papa Tongarewa, a premier museum, or take in contemporary design at City Gallery Wellington; delve into Wellington’s maritime history at the award-winning Museum of Wellington; discover New Zealand wildlife at Zealandia or the Wellington Zoo; stroll Wellington Botanic Garden; or gaze up at the southern hemisphere in the Carter Observatory’s digital planetarium.
Your ticket is valid for the day of purchase (tickets purchased for the last departure of the day are also valid for the following day), and your driver can tell you when the next minivan will arrive to take you to the next location. 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.

Great tour around the city with points of interest talked about in detail at a cheap price which made it well worth it. I didn't do the whole trip as I was short on time so didn't use the get on get off service, I just got off at the top of the Cable Cart which meant I stayed on track of my time and left something more to do for my next visit.

The tour driver was very knowledgeable and entertaining. She referred to herself as the "hat lady" always wearing her hat. The round-about tour was enjoyable, getting to know the city and leaving plenty of time to explore on our own.

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.
