10/10 to Richard for an incredible sightseeing experience in Wellington.
Debbie_G
, Apr 2021
I can’t rate this exceptional tour highly enough. Richard was a fantastic host who ensured that we had as full a Wellington experience as possible. He clearly loves his home town, Wellington, and this was evident in his enjoyment in sharing it with us. Richard was knowledgeable, fun and willing to go the extra mile. He showed us the venue for an appointment we were due to attend the following day, saving us the stress of trying to find it. If you have limited time and want to have an awesome, fun, comprehensive sightseeing tour, then Wellington Sightseeing tour and Richard, is the way to go. Thank you, Richard for an unforgettable experience and many happy memories.

A wonderful introduction to Wellington and all it has to offer

Ray was a delightful tour guide. He provided a thorough overview of Wellington's history and showed us all the key sights in Wellington. On top of this, he treated us to Hokey-Pokey ice cream during our time together. The only downside was the weather was rather cool and windy. A very pleasant morning!!!!

Loved Wellington
James

This was a great small group tour with our driver and tour guide Ray who was a real character, both knowledgable and friendly. Loved the hat !! We covered all the major sights in and around Wellington a wonderful tour. Of all the cities we visited in New Zealand Wellington was our favourite in some ways probably due to the enthusiasm shown by Ray. Would highly recommend this tour.

Driver knew his city.

Our driver was good but he had a lot of political commentary that was unnecessary. Very right wing and it was uncomfortable. But he was very helpful to me as I am handicapped so that was good.
icon Response from Host , Feb 2020
Thank you for your review as this helps me make sure my tours are run in a manner that all my clients enjoy. The guide does know Wellington as he has lived here all his life. You were possibly on the same tour as another guest as I received two similar reviews at the same time. I have spoken to the guide and told him not to discuss religion, gender issues or politics as his opinion may offend someone. He wishes to apologies for any discomfort to you and has advised me he will just talk about facts in future and not offer his opinions. On the positive side I am glad he helped you as you state you are disabled. Once again thank you for your review.
