    great day in wonderful wellington.
    dorinda_t, Mar 2023
    i think the most memorable part of this tour was our guide Jo, she was knowledgable, informative, friendly ,obliging and answered all our questions no matter how silly they may have seemed to her. We saw things we didnt even knew existed in Wellington, all of them interesting and of course beautiful. Jo conducted the tour at a pace to suit us and our comfort was considered at all times. Would reccommend this tour to anyone. Thankyou Jo and Suzee.
    Response from Host, Mar 2023
    Thank you so much for your kind words Dorinda. It was a pleasure to spend the day with you both. I loved the depth of our conversations, and there were no silly questions! The final question to answer was the book recommendations... There are many, but I would start with Dr Ranginui Walker's "Struggle without end' Until next time, Jo
    Don't pass up an opportunity for an awesome tour!
    Tom_F, Feb 2023
    Suzee is a very professional native of the area who loves people and her job. She delivered an awesome tour EXACTLY meeting our requests in challenging weather conditions. Don't pass an opportunity to tour Wellington with Suzee!

    Thanks so much for your review. I had the best day with you both. I'm glad we delivered on what you wanted - that is our aim for the day. I'm glad you chose us to look after you in Wellington.
    Wonderful Tour Guide
    Michael_T, Feb 2023
    Suzee was a wonderful tour guide, and the fact that the tour included only our group meant that our day was completely flexible. Suzee showed us the city of Wellington, of course, but she was also able to give us a real flavour of life in New Zealand.
    Response from Host, Feb 2023
    Thank you. I had such a great day with you all. I'm glad you feel like you got to experience some laid back relaxed NZ lifestyle. We do pride ourselves on giving you a taste of what kiwi life is like, even if it is just for one day. Thanks again for taking the time to write your review. We appreciate it.
    The cable car while only...
    Gordon_S, Feb 2023
    The cable car while only short provided some excellent views of Wellington from the top. The drive up the mountain to the top where there was a wind turbine gave spectacular views of Wellington. Tour of the parliament building and the botanical gardens were excellent. Jo was a really good guide and told us a lot about Wellington and it’s history Four hours well spent
    Response from Host, Feb 2023
    Thanks for your Review Gordon. It was great to meet and spend time with you both. I really enjoyed the quality of our conversation. One of the things I love about our tours is the time to have real conversations. Safe travel home. Jo
    Excellent way to acquaint yourself with Wellington
    Katalin_B, Dec 2022
    We had a great time with Jo as our guide. She was very knowledgeable, flexible and showed us the best parts of Wellington. Recommend to anyone to have your first exposure to the charming capital of New Zealand.
    Response from Host, Dec 2022
    Kia ora Katalin. Thank you for your review. It was great to be part of your New Zealand experience. I really enjoyed our time together, our many conversations and introducing you to kiwi ice cream! Safe travel home, Jo.
    Beautiful City
    Toni_B, Dec 2022
    Suzee from Utours was amazing She catered to our needs. From the cable car to the coast the views are breath taking.
    Response from Host, Dec 2022
    Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed yourselves. Being able to cover both the Wairarapa and Wellington areas across two days was fabulous. I loved our laughter and having conversations about real things that matter. All the best, Suzee
    Great private tour
    Clinton_S, Oct 2022
    Highly recommend using Suzee for a private tour around Wellington. She is a local guide and know how to avoid the crowds. Had a booster seat and snacks for our 3 year old son. 5 stars
    Response from Host, Oct 2022
    Thanks Clinton, We sure had a great day. Knowing the must do playgrounds of Wellington is an important skill set for a tour guide. I too think we did a pretty good job of avoiding the crowds. Enjoy the rest of your travels. Thanks again for booking with us, Suzee
    Great way to meet Wellington
    Lewis_H, Mar 2020
    Suzee was excellent! We had limited time & this was a great way to get a feel for the city. Saw the highlights of course, but her comments on the history, neighborhoods, etc. gave more understanding. She was very flexible to accommodate what we were interested in. Highly recommended!
    Response from Host, Mar 2020
    Hi, Thanks for taking the time to review us. I'm glad we were able to give you a feel for the city. Our hope is that people love Wellington so much they want to come back. All the best and thanks for choosing us to show you our home town. Suzee
