Tim was our guide for the day and he was a pleasant and knowledgeable guy who took the time to share as much as he could about the city, its history and interesting anecdotal stuff too. It was good to get out beyond the city confines and see more of the coast and the greenery surrounding this cool little capital.

We were blessed with amazing weather and a great knowledgeable and very attentive tour guide. We drove around wellington CBD and visited 3 high points with magnificent views over the city. Our guide wisely avoided dropping us off... More
