Other Wellington Day Tour Operators
Wellington Rover Tours bill themselves as ‘the best little sightseeing tour company in Wellington’. They cover several day tour activities including the ‘Lord of the Rings’, ‘Seal Colony’ and ‘Farm and City’ tour options. These small group tours are intended to ditch the old-hat format of boring commentary and replace it with interactive conversation so you get to learn about the ‘real Wellington’.

Wellington’s Hop On Hop Off  bus tours take in a whopping 17 of the city’s highlights. The 11 seater minibus covers cityscape, diverse suburbs and beautiful coast. Each tour lasts two hours and includes three photo stops of ten minutes. The bus allows for longer exploration if you want to stop off somewhere en-route and then pick you up later.

Hammonds Wellington Tours regard themselves as the city’s original sightseeing operator with 56 years of experience. They offer a range of tours which include city sights and the Kapiti coast. This day tour takes you north out of the city centre to the beautiful Martinborough wine region in the Wairarapa.

Foodies are going to be in seventh heaven with the diversity of small group gourmet walking tours offered by Zest Food Tours. These tours explore both Wellington city and the Martinborough area with its food and wine options. As well as sampling some top-notch fare you’ll also be meeting the characters, producers, growers and crafts people behind the scenes. You will also gain all kinds of insight into the cultures and influences which colour the region’s food and wine choices. Named by Lonely Planet as one of the ‘Top 10 walking tours for globetrotting foodies’, the Zest Food Tours are something of a food themed treasure hunt.

The Wellington day tours we have highlighted have vary according to your interests. The operators have plenty of knowledge and experience. In fact,  they’ve already done all the leg work so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the trip! Your half or full day tour in Wellington will highlight all the best places to visit.
