We had a morning with Jennifer taking us around the sites of Wellington. She is a lovely lady who is great fun and incredibly knowledgeable.

My first CRUISE WELLINGTON review - thank you so very much R&R! Cruise Wellington was established as a division of Wild About Wellington only a few months ago for guests just like you R&R. I have long appreciated that an all-encompassing short tour of Wellington at a great price, with personal service, would be an admirable addition to the cruise... More

Wild about Wellington is just that - I love the place. Everything in Wellington is wild (not just the wind). The theatre, cinemas, cafes, botanical gardens, zoo just everything. If you cannot do it in Wellington then it cannot be worth doing

Jennifer is just so much fun and we had a great afternoon visiting art galleries, the cable car and Botanical Gardens, and the Parliament. She knows Wellington well and loves it as you can tell by her enthusiasm! She is funny and fun and just a delight to be with. Our small group loved the tour. Highly recommend.

We were with Jennifer to tour the Parliament, then some Wellington sites and on to the tram. Jennifer is a lovely and professional guide who not only takes a real interest in Wellington but is so attentive to the people she guides.

Had a great morning out with Jennifer. She took us to the Supreme Court and into the Courthouse, and into the Parliament building. We also were shown lots of other buildings in Wellington, before we went up on the cable car. This was great fun, with Jennifer you just slip around the queue like VIPs and go on up. She... More
