The whole tour was informative, fun and totally enjoyable. Richard was an awesome tour guide. We had so many laughs. We saw so much of Wellington we would never have seen. The Weta shop was so awesome we are coming back to book with Richard to do the day tour of Weta. Totally topped off our trip to Wellington.

We were picked up from our overnight stay by an amazing guide. She was friendly, chatty and so informative. As first time visitors to Wellington with limited time, this tour was ideal. The history of various suburbs, most important places and great photo stops made this tour memorable. This is highly recommended.

Ray was very warm and easy to talk to. It was just me and my sister on that day of the tour but he did not disappoint us. Very informative and knows very well what he's doing. I personally enjoyed the question and answer part. (Make sure you listen very well.) If you wanna relax,enjoy the scenery and know about Wellington this is a Must-to-do.

A very informative tour about the sights of Wellington; we learnt so much about the Wellington area, information and places we would never have known or seen. Richard was friendly, funny and he made it feel like you had known him before. The Hokey Pokey ice cream treat was spot on. We highly recommend this tour, if you want to have an amazing experience that will leave you hoping there was more time ...
