The our operator met us at the port and was very friendly and informative of Wellington. He did go out of his way to make sure we did not miss any of the sites. One stop was filled with several buses and he went on and returned so that we could return and view the old church, gardens and cable cars to the city. Would highly recommend this tour.
Of all our tours, this had the most additional guests which I was worried about at first due to the large bus, however, it was very comfortable and our tour guide was very informative and could navigate the tiny streets of Wellington beautifully. Wellington is a wonderful city and was a great surprise to us. Shore Excursions definitely knows the tours to select. On all our tours we saved a lot of money relative to what was offered by our cruise company. I highly recommend Shore Excursions for your land activities.

This excursion was just the right length of time for a bus tour. The group was small and the description accurate. We enjoyed all of the neighborhoods and how people live on a very steep mountain and get to work everyday . The cable car was fun but again, the weather didn't allow for any views from Mount Victoria. The capitol city was lovely . I
Sites were good and the bus driver was terrific.

We enjoyed this tour very much. Our guide was excellent. Because it was a beautiful day with no wind, she asked if we'd like to ride further - we all agreed and had a beautiful tour that lasted much longer than the original itinerary!

We had a great overview of the fascinating city of Wellington by a very good and informative driver, John. Amazed how he could maneuver that big bus over those narrow, winding roads! The highlight of the day was the stunning Old Saint Paul's Church--absolutely beautiful! The Rose Garden was beautiful, but stay away from the coffee there--it was not so good! Great that these tours can be purchased in Canadian Dollars--no surprises when the bill comes in!

A very good driver winding us up and down hills. Some of it was repetitious which could be eliminated. We really enjoyed our visit to the Museum which provided us with a fine Maori history.
This was a good tour for Wellington. There was more to see than I thought. Will use this company again!
The group was a little larger than I thought it would be, but it was very organized. We were able to see everything and then some. Our bus driver/guide was very knowledgeable of the area.

Comfortable bus. Driver did a great job moving a large bus through some very tight areas. Train ride back into town was great.
Our guide was capable and interesting. We saw a variety of interesting areas of Wellington and enjoyed every minute.
Good introduction to the area.
