I was greeted with "No food allowed on the bus!" instead of good morning. Anyway, I had no intention of eating food in the bus whatsoever, but I didn't want to waste food provided by the hotel. The tour in itself was okay, a bit challenging at the summit as it was cold and windy. Tour guide was very knowledgeable about each stop we visited. I just felt that there was a lot of time constraints, and would opt for the hop on hop off bus if I could redo the tour....would have saved me 20 bucks too

Excellent trip to see Mt Wellington, and surrounds. Very cold and windy up there so be sure to take a warm jacket, gloves and beanie.
