We had a really great trip up to Mt Wellington. Our tour guide Greg was really fabulous and the scenery w-simply stunning. Was treated to some snow also…so a great bonus in October!!… Really recommend going up in the tour for the historic information and the chance to look out the window rather than watch the road…. Great day… thanks!

The weather was terrible BUT the tour was excellent. There is one thing the tour guide cannot control and thats the weather but he was still able to make most of the situation. The tour was engaging and fun and we still had a really good time. Would love to come back one day when the weather was better!!

What can I say? Great drive, breath-taking views, a great driver in Tony, such GREAT value!! Plenty of time at the peak to take photos and enjoy the views (a sunset tour would be divine!). This is a company that goes to the peak even in challenging weather as opposed to other companies. I can thoroughly recommend!
