We took a tour through Celebrity Cruiseline in December 2019. John Wellington was our guide and he was excellent! John was so knowledgeable and professional. He not only talked about the sites we saw he also taught us much about New Zealand, such as their outstanding healthcare system. It was such a treat to learn so much. We highly recommend Lonely Mountain Tours, and if you can, try to get John Wellington as your tour guide!

John was our guide on a two-day excursion across New Zealand's south island booked through Celebrity Cruises. It was an excursion we had taken on a previous cruise but it was way better with John as a guide. We learned so much more from him in the two days, from geology and history to lots of Lord of the Rings lore. On top of that, John was well-organized and kept us on schedule with humour and efficiency.

John Wellington was our tour guide on a two day shore excursion with Celebrity Cruises from Milford Sound to Dunedin in late November. He is excellent and his knowledge of history and geography is outstanding. I was thinking we would be on a two day boring bus ride and stopping places, but John kept us going non stop with his knowledge and facts of the area - I was never bored. I learned a lot from him about New Zealand and the south island. He made sure problems were fixed immediately and that we were taken care of at the hotel. I highly recommend him for tours.

Would highly recommend any tour led by John Wellington. His knowledge of the South Island was supurb especially his geographical insights which added an additional layer to our New Zealand tour. He knows his history of the area and shares it with good humor and clarity. As a tour guide he was highly efficient and organized even on our tight schedule. Was the best host we have ever had!

John Wellington was our tour guide on a two day shore excursion with Celebrity Cruises, from Milford Sound to Dunedin. He did a terrific job in all regards - very knowledgeable about the various geography features, history, national and local facts, etc. He was extraordinarily professional, humorous, and attentive to our bus and oversight of the other two that were on the same tour. We've been on many guided tours - John is one of the very finest guides we've experienced, truly committed to making the experience as rich and rewarding as possible for his group.
