Thanks to Lorraine, we enjoyed our afternoon chortle around this fabulous city - certainly made more fabulous by Lorraine's local knowledge and obvious passion for her home town. It was like being shown around by a friend.

Great tour which started on time and allowed the right amount of time at each spot. Our driver/guide was knowledgeable with a good personality. A fabulous driver as he performed almost impossible turns in ridiculously difficult places.

Excellent introduction to Wellington City in a posh pink bus. Only about 15 people on board so easy to ask questions etc. Also loved being taken off the beaten track and helpful tips to get the most out of a short visit to Windy Wellington.More
