RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
Capture the best scenery the Kapiti Coast has to offer during this full day tour. See sublime vistas from majestic lookouts, visit the world-famous Southwards Car Museum and Nga Manu Nature Reserve, savour lunch at a popular Waikanae Beach restaurant and enjoy a magical helicopter flight.
After pick up in Wellington, you will drive through the northern suburbs to two spectacular lookout points, both affording you with unparalleled vistas of the coast and Kapiti Island. On a clear day you will be able to see the top of the South Island and potentially Mt Ruapehu. Pay a visit to Camp McKay at Paekakariki where the US Marine Corps were based in World War II, before viewing the largest private motor vehicle collection in the Southern Hemisphere at Southwards Car Museum. Make sure to bring your camera to snap some shots of you in front of these stylish cars!
Continue on to Nga Manu Nature Reserve in Waikanae, where you will stroll through the open air aviary housing a host of native birds. Marvel at the cheeky Kakas, take a peak back to prehistoric times and see the Tuatara's and if you're lucky, you may spot a Kiwi in the nocturnal house. Having worked up an appetite by this point, your guide will take you to one of Waikanae’s top cafes or restaurants for a delicious lunch and beverage of your choice. Wind down the day perfectly with a magical helicopter flight, which takes you over the coast, out to Kapiti Island and back to base.
