Hammonds Scenic Tours
There's no better way to discover the history and iconic architectural landmarks of Wellington City, and the diversity of breath-taking scenery in the Wellington Region, than by joining a coach tour with Wellington’s Original Private Sightseeing Company.
Wally Hammond, founder and present-day Managing Director of Hammonds Scenic Tours, is a Wellington icon in his own right, having operated Hammonds Scenic Tours successfully for over 50 plus years. He and his company are very highly regarded by travel professionals both offshore and throughout New Zealand. Wally’s enviable experience in the tourism industry is no match for any other Wellington tour operator!
Although we are Wellington's Original Private Sightseeing Company, by no means do we operate by traditional standards!
- Yes, we operate our tours on coaches - though we use small coaches, which are personal and interactive. So our passengers get all the comforts of coach travel, but with personalised service.
- Drivers are well presented and experienced, and will provide you with informative, yet entertaining commentary, showing you their passion for Wellington.
- Best of all, there are countless photo opportunities! Our city and region is strikingly photogenic. We will always stop for you to wander around and practice your photography skills.
Personal commendations such as those from the NZ Minister of Tourism (2005), and Queen Elizabeth II which accompanied a NZ commemorative medal (1990), highlight the consistent and impeccable standard of service to be expected when touring with us, and the amazing contribution Wally has made to the tourism industry over the years.
Tours run daily of Wellington City and Coastline; Kapiti Gold Coast Tour; and Palliser Bay Seals, Wine & Lord of the Rings Sites. Customised private tours throughout New Zealand on request. We are also conference/corporate transport specialists, and provide airport/venue transfers.
Book your tour with us and travel with a well-established and reliable operator! We'd love to show you all that Wellington has to offer.
