    We had an amazing day out with Philip on the Wine and Wild Coast Tour. So many highlights of the day - from the incredible cheese, chocolate and wine tasting through to the stunning scenery, especially the seals. As Kiwis holidaying in our own country, we loved finding out about the history of the places we visited that we wouldn't of known if we self guided. Philip was super easy to get on with and really informative. Great communication from the first enquiry of the tour, and brilliant organisation as the day went so smoothly with all the activities we managed to pack in. Highly recommend this trip!

    We've just had a fantastic day with Brian, our tour guide. He was very approachable and easy to talk with. Excellent knowledge of the area and went the extra mile to show off the Wellington region. He listened to our interests and changed plans to match our wants. We highly recommend this tour if you are looking for a more personal experience, rather than a large commercial operation. Brian is your guy...top notch fella.

    We had an amazing day!!
    Everything went smoothly (including John’s driving), and the wineries were just gorgeous.
    Our Driver John gave us lots of warning when it was time to move to the next place, kept us informed, he ensured everyone was safe and no man was left behind!
    Thank you from the whole team!!
    We will definitely be recommending Zozo travel to friends, family and other businesses for functions.

    This specialised day out with John was exactly what we were hoping for,and more. John was totally flexible in making our day relaxed and informative. John gave us the opportunity to spend more time at the Car museum and reduced time on other areas if necessary. We enjoyed his company and indeed everything that was included. This gave us a day that we could sit back and literally enjoy the ride.

    Thank you thank you thank you! I was a little dubious about going on a tour of my own hometown having lived here for almost 30 years. However I'm so glad I decided to take a break for the day and let 'Talk of the Town Tours' do all the hard work. Brian was a safe and steady driver, very knowledgeable about the local area and took us down roads never traveled before! I learnt lots of interesting facts, nothing was ever an issue and the day was flexible throughout. The wine tastings were topped off with an AMAZING platter lunch experience which was generously portioned and suited dietary requirements. Thank you Brian and team, I will be recommending visitors and locals alike!

    We booked a wine tour with Tom, who picked us up from our hotel in central Wellington.
    From booking the tour Tom was great at communicating.
    Tom chose four amazing family run vineyards which offered an amazing selection of wines. We were able to meet the owners and wine makers at all of the vineyards which made for a much more personal tour.

    Would highly recommend and book again!

    Visiting from Australia for 2 weeks. Contacted Brian on the 26-05-21to book a half day tour of Wellington and upper and lower Hutt area. Quick reply on line and gave a full explanation of the next days tour. Unfortunately for Brian he only had 2 bookings but luckily for us he went ahead with a smaller vehicle. He was a real local and made us feel welcome straight away. If you are visiting Wellington do not miss this tour. Leaves the Hop on Hop off for dead. Very reasonable price and great local knowledge. Thanks again Brian. Rob and Lisa Newton

    Perfect way to see the off beat local food producers, and sample some delicious artisan food and talk to the producers. Loved learning how to roast coffee beans, sampling Italian cured meats and tasting chocolate. A great day!

    As a mountain bike guide myself and my partner a wine guide, it was so nice to spend a day as a customer. We know what is expected of a guide and John fully exceeded our expectations.
    From start to finish John catered to all of our requests, and more.
    It was a terrible rainy day, but Johns vehicle was modern, warm and very comfortable.
    He is very polite, knowledgeable of the area and also the wines. Every winery we visited was perfect for our tastes and he even managed to get us a booking at a Ata Rangi wines at our request without a booking which was a great surprise.
    I felt the price was very reasonable considering the time John spent with us throughout the day, money very well spent.
    We cannot recommend his tours enough, 5 stars easy.

    Thanks John and look forward to seeing you down our way sometime so we can return the favour.

    We recently had the opportunity to ride yet another of NZ's great cycle trails. Wow! We especially enjoyed this trail as each section was so different and we enjoyed the history along the route.
    We commenced and ended in Day's Bay riding pretty cruisy over the 3 days as the weather was fairly kind to us. Stayed the first night in Upper Hutt with great hosts & had a great night). Our accommodation for the next night at Waiorongomai was excellent - peaceful rural setting except for the howling winds which disappeared next morning.
    Most of all much thanks to both Dave and Alex for their great communication before and along the route, highly organised accommodation, meals and shuttle services. Also, thanks to the shuttle driver who kindly dropped our gear back to Wellington Top 10.
    Highly recommend Cycle Remutaka (by wildfinder) and a must do trail.
