        Colin, you made Wellington so special for us!!
        Our driver Colin was so funny, informative and took us on a 6 hour tour instead of just 3 hours. He actually got to know us by our first names and sent a text after the tour to thank us for joining him. He went above and beyond and recommend him highly!!! He was THE BEST!!!

        Alan was an awesome driver-guide. He kept us all informed about Wellington's places of interest, the high & lows, and all that tourists like us need to know. Great work, Alan and thank you!

        Great choice of stops to highlight the LOTR experience. Professional, courteous and knowledgeable guides/drivers.
        This was a unique day with high winds and a delayed start due to traffic jams but Zplor tours pulled it off masterfully with adjustments to the scheduling that still allowed us to get the full LOTR experience. While necessarily fast paced, we enjoyed a “full day” of activities with amazing views, filming locations and a terrific tour of WETA studios. This is a top-notch tour service that we highly recommend.

        LOTR 1/2 day tour from Cruise
        Booked as an extra activity in Wellington from off of our cruise ship. Picked up at Port dock which was great. Had to stop for a few other pickups at hotels in town which had a bit of confusion with the bookings. Our first stop was the WETA workshop and made it in time for the tour. Tour was great. Then went to the Mt Victoria LOTR movie sites, which was interesting. I had booked this for my husband as he is a fan, me not so much a movie fan. Guide was great in dropping off the groups where they wanted on the return in town. Overall, really glad we did this tour.

        Very helpful tour company
        We where on a cruise and had issues getting into Wellington. Xplore was great! Answering emails late in day and helping moving our tour date. The tour was great and on a small bus. A necessary requirement on such small roads. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. Small glitch on dinner venues as a lot where closed due to Bank Holiday but he over came to find us something!

        Our day in Wellington was a little frustrating. Cruise ship issues engaging the gangway led to long delays getting off the ship. Then finding individual tour bus was difficult. The bus was a large one and we thought it was going to be smaller. This reduced the quality of our experience. Our bus driver/tour guide did his best to give us a good experience.

        The whole tour was excellent. Did half day tour of Wellington plus antartica centre. Our tour guide Dennis went above and beyond and was very knowledgeable. Tour was well organised, no hassles getting on or off the ship. Would highly recommend.

        Best tour ever! I recommend Dennis as your guide.
        This tour was amazing, due in no small part to our fantastic tour guide Dennis! He gave us such an interesting perspective of Wellington and managed to remember each person's name getting on and off the bus at stops ( which is very amazing as we had over 30 on our tour)! He made every person feel valued and appreciated for taking the tour. We were given history and details for each stop on the tour we stopped at and more. We knew much more about Wellington and N.Z. in general than some of our friends who had gone on a different bus or with a different tour operator. He was willing to accommodate when possible and went the extra mile for us letting us check a souvenir shop etc. Our tour went on for longer than the advertised time allotted and he never rushed us while keeping the tour moving. He also had such a great sense of humor, was naturally funny and we had the best time ever. Explore tours is very fortunate to have Dennis as one of their guides.

        My husband and I went on the full day Lord of the Rings tour and had the amazing pleasure of having Lester as our guide. He was very sweet and kind and had so much knowledge about the movie locations and shared that and lots more. He made the day perfect for us. Thank you, Lester!

      Our guide Allen was friendly and informative.
      We only visited two winery's before returning to our hotel. Lunch is not provided and the only lunch option was at the second winery at 2:30pm.We would have preferred a few lunch options a little earlier. Our pick-up time was 11am it may have been better to have an earlier pick-up so as to visit the third winery.

      Thanks for leaving an honest review, that's how we find ways to improve our tours. I see in our booking sheet we had to pick up a couple from the port at 10.45am first, which is the reason for the later departure. I also see we had a lunch platter booked for your group at Poppies Winery at 1.30pm. We will ask your guide if this changed. We are sorry your tour missed out on a third winery visit.

      We had a great full day with Kevin! He took us over the mountains from Wellington to Martinborough. We had a wine tasting at a lovely boutique winery, Poppies, where we also had lunch. Beautiful drive over the mountains and nice to see something other than a city. The weather prevented great views, however, we enjoyed the drive regardless. Kevin took us around to some of the highlights of Wellington before returning us to our cruise ship. So nice they have port access and can pick up and drop off right at your ship. Highly recommend Xplor Tours and Kevin!

      A great tour with Explor at Wellington. We were on a cruise and I had booked the tour directly and thought we needed to go into town to pick up the tour, this is because the cruise companies tell people it’s not possible for passengers to walk in the port area, that is NOT true as Explor can pick up at the ship and have a pick up point that we missed (our fault) No matter Richard the owner came into town,picked us up and gave us a tour anyway. A friendly guy who obviously loves his job and is great fun and likes a joke. His local knowledge is top notch. Definitely recommend Explor.Simon & Bev

      The Wine Experience was great. We booked a group tour and ended up with a private tour with Andrew which was fantastic. Andrew is very knowledgeable, nice and with a good sense of humour. On our return to the cruise ship we were stuck for over 2 hours in a major traffic jam due to a broken truck and missed the boat. The Xplor team (Lyne and Richard) took care of the plane ticket, and hotel at our next destination port, taking out the stress of searching for it.
      I will definitely recommend this tour and the Xplor company. They are professional and they are taking really good care of their guests.

      Thanks so much for your review Pierre. It is our responsibility to get you back to port on time, so to put things right we were also responsible for arranging and paying for your flights, accommodation and meals at your next port. Again, our apologies, but hopefully it can be remembered as a wee mystery tour detour from Wellington. Safe travels for the rest of your cruise.

      It was a nice way to spend our day. If you are doing this tour from the cruise port, follow the instructions. Kevin was prompt and we found him very quickly. Poppy's was a wonderful lunch spot. We received a nice variety of tastings at each winery. I recommend this trip.
