The Wellington craft beer tour was excellent. Our guide was Tom and we had an incredible time with him. By the end of the tour he wasn’t just our guide, but a friend! He took us to some amazing breweries and shared some great info on the surrounding area. We were a bit slow on our tour (really enjoyed the first brewery) and Tom made sure we still got plenty of time at all the scheduled stops! Would not have been able to see all of the breweries in such a condensed time without this tour and we were glad to have gotten out of downtown Wellington for a bit too. Deserves higher than five stars!

Definitely worth doing while in Wellington!!
Randall_S, Jun 2023
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed this brewery tour!! We checked out most of the Wellington breweries on our own, but don’t drive in other countries, and this tour brought us away from Wellington to Lower and Upper Hutte. All 4 were breweries were great and considering how many beers we got to try, and transport costs to each place, we felt this package was pretty good value and would do it again with the company for sure!! The guide keeps you on schedule and provides great recommendations at each stop based on your preferences.

Thanks Randall, it was my pleasure hosting you both and I enjoyed the evening out showing you around some of the great craft beer spots in and around Wellington. Thanks for the great feedback!
Ask for Aaron ~ he's the BEST
Roberta_R, May 2023
OMG - what a great tour! Aaron was so interesting ~ not just about beer but the things he explained to us about Wellington and the surrounding areas were things we would never had known .... and the beer!!! We went to 4 different breweries, each one different then the other ~ and each one great! If you are into craft beer - this is a must do tour while in Wellington!
Response from Host, May 2023
Delighted to hear you enjoyed your day out with Aaron and love your enthusiasm for our amazing local brews!
Great craft beer tour wellington region
Dianne_H, Apr 2023
Tour was for birthday surprise but would repeat the tour with mates any time. Phil, driver/owner was interactive and got to understand my preference for craft beer styles and where to visit based on what my likes were. Although the tour had a couple of prebooked tasting the others were flexible based on likes. We got to taste a wide range of craft beers, a flight(4 beers tasting) selected at each brewery. With some having over 20 beers on tap. Was a great day.

Thanks for the review Dianne. Lovely to have you on tour and celebrate your birthday! Thanks for choosing Zozo Travel

Paul_M, Mar 2023
Good tour and beer visits even if a bit long between due to traffic jams - brewtown excellent though
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thanks for taking the time to leave your review Paul. I'm glad you thought the effort was worth it to get out to Brewtown, it's an amazing place for beer lovers!
Great tour of Micro Brewerys
Terry_o, Feb 2020
Listed pickup spot was easy to get to, across the street from the 2nd "free shuttle bus" stop. The driver tried to call us, we didn't have a phone plan, to arrange pickup at the ship to save us doing the shuttle. We had a great time and when we returned to the ship and spoke of it there were a number of people that were envious of us. There were just two of us on the tour (my wife and myself) and the tour guide, Philip. Philip did not skimp on the tour because of the low turnout. We saw 4 breweries, had numerous samples at two of them and a 4 and a 6 "flight" of larger samples at two others. Along the way Philip talked of Wellington and New Zealand, being such a small group we also were able to talk about more personal things such as schooling, sports etc Highlight was Kereru Brewery. Highly recommend, too often Wine tours are seen and something like this is overlooked.
