Overview
See the top attractions of Wellington on a hop-on hop-off minivan tour that follows a 90 minute route throughout the capital city and its outskirts. 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.
What to Expect
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.
