Great tour with Peter and Jennifer. Jennifer is the best tour guide we have ever had. My uncle had a bike accident two days before and had to use a wheelchair.

Wild About Wellington was a great tour. Jennifer was excellent in showing us a personal tour about the city. Any questions or sites we wanted to check out in particular wasn't a problem for her. Her knowledge of the city and the sites we saw made the experience memorable. Thanks Jennifer
