Perfect tour package

Traveled alone to Wellington for the first time for only 2 days. Didn’t know how to plan and visit so many places in a short period of time. The tour helped me in travelling all those wonderful places where I wanted to visit in 2 days. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and friendly who knows all the history of Wellington. The lady driver was very sweet to me who gave me ticket to travel for the another day as I invested all my time in searching animals in the zoo🤪 It was a fun trip. Would recommend all if wants to be familiar of the history and famous places of Wellington. My trip to the city would have been more confusing if I had opted for the city bus and taxis. Beyond the tour, I had enough time to explore the city myself. Thanks to all who guided me through Wellington for two days🥰

Great way to see the sights of Wellington

Pleasant driver took us to several tourist attractions around the city so that we could choose where we wanted to spend more time. Pick-up / drop-off locations were well marked.

Terrific way to see the sights

The driver always makes the experience, these 20 seat buses were small enough to have commentary and stops quick enough to see all the city to plan the stop you want to spend the most of the day at.
