We loved our walking tour with Jennifer. She is very knowledgeable and energetic. We saw all the sites downtown, the cable car ride, and te papa museum. Lunch and coffee stops were a bonus. Highly recommend for a fun day.

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.
