    Although the trip was good the commentary was poor. You could not hear the commentary over the air conditioning blasting. And felt it was just a drive around the bays. No souvenirs of the trip like a free pen promoting the business.

    We had an excellent tour today with Hammonds. The tour went over so much in this half day excursion. I couldn't have asked for a better introduction to Wellington.

    We went on the Hammond sightseeing Wellington city sights & coastline tour. It was great. Our tour guide, Lorraine, was very knowledgeable & friendly. We covered a large area over the course of approximately 3 hours I would highly recommend this tour.

    Loraine was my guide and our small group tour (8 people in the pink bus) was very good. She has been showing us all necessary areas of town, pointed out sights and dates and we all could ask different kind of questions. I recommend this tour - I enjoyed the 3 hours.
