John B.

Wellington, New Zealand

I'm a born and bred Wellingtonian who loves showcasing our city to visitors.

I have over 5 years Guide experience and in that time I have specialised in smaller personalised tours travelling in a luxury 4WD.
I offer a wide array of tours from Wellington Full Day tours to Wine and Craft Beer tours and we tour the greater Wellington region and the Wairarapa.

Wellington is a cool little city with lots of hidden gems. Having lived here most of my life, I can show you these fascinating sites to enhance your experience. A good example is the Chocoale Fish cafe where we lunch. It has a full menu but specialises in seafood delicasies, some of which are only found in New Zealand. Wellington also has a coffee and craft beer culture which you can experience on your tour.

I like most Kiwis am fun loving, easy going, approachable yet recognise the importance of maintaining high standards to ensure our customers have a day in Wellington to remember. When you book with me the day is all about you and we can be flexible to alter your tour upon demand if required.

Outside of taking tours I'm keen on sports (football and golf in particular) and enjoy spending time with family and friends. Wellington has more restaurants per capita than New York so there are never any shortage of places to meet up for a good time.

Credentials

I have been awarded a Silver Accreditation by Qualmark NZ, the official Tourism accreditor in NZ.
I am a member of Skal Wellington, an International Association of Travel and Tourism professionals.
I have a Defensive Driving Award issued by the Automobile Association of NZ and am First Aid Certified should the need arise.

Restrictions

My 4WD car can take up to 4 paying passengers comfortably. For larger groups we have access to a 12 seater minivan.

I do not have any restrictions in regard to my guiding and can offer a full range of experiences.
