Kia ora kōrua to Gary and his lovely wife. Gary met us at the cruise port in Wellington at 10am for what turned out to be the best excursion on our 12 day cruise from Sydney Au to Auckland NZ. We started with a stop in front of the House of Parliament and ended when he dropped us off in front of Te Papa Museum about 4pm. In between we were entertained and enlightened by Gary and his wife when we stopped at the Beach Café. We travelled through the Wellington mountainside to the coastline and back. The trip and lunch were like spending a day with friends instead of with a tour guide. Gary would stop whenever we wanted to stop to take photos or when there was a view or something he wanted to point out. His knowledge of the land and history of the Maori was fascinating and the food at lunch was outstanding. The entire day was awesome. there were supposed to be 6 of us on the tour, but luckily for us, 2 people didn't show up. There was plenty of room for the four of us in his 4x4 but it would have been pretty tight to have had 6. Lunch was included in the price of the tour.
