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.

Delighted to meet you both, and so glad you selected Wellington as your city in New Zealand to investigate. Sights & Bites is a great reconnaissance if you are beginning a holiday in the city. We covered lots of ground and I hope you enjoyed the recommendations I made for your time here. All the best, Jennifer More

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

Jennifer is an amazing tour guide. She owns and is the only guide for her company. No one can do it better. Jennifer loves her city and she imparts that with an easy manner. We spent 21/2 hours with her and the time just flew by. We saw the major sites and at the same time learned the history of... More

I went to Wellington for the first time in September 2012 and my first day was spent with Jennifer. She is an amazing lady with a passion for her city and NZ history. I learnt so much from her. I was a woman travelling alone and whilst all the other companies required more than one person, Jennifer went out of... More

about not having more time to spend with the most lovely lady in Wellington. We only had one pint because the Dam (Oosterdam that is) was scheduled out early on. But we walked fast and viewed the major sights including some Polinasian students supping on birthday cake at cable's height. J Lo is one of the sweetest persons one could... More

She blew into the Hotel Lobby with a smile that warmed the chilly day -- her knowledge of the city that she so loves began with the paintings hanging in the main stairway of the Hotel. As we walked through the city Jennifer was able to weave the history, politics, personalities, and landscapes into the story of Wellington.

Jennifer was an excellent guide showing us places we wouldn't have found on our own and her knowledge of Wellington was fantastic. The chocolate shops we visited were divine. Lunch was at Leuven Belgian beer bar which Jennifer suggested, the mussels and beer was great. All in all a fantastic time with lasting memories. Marilyn and Steve
