What a perfect day with Robbie. We covered Wellington in an easy manner. He was sensitive to our needs and so knowledgeable. We couldn't have asked for a better tour or tour operator

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Rudi. I had an enjoyable day with you all as well and I'm glad we got to see and do so much.

Excellent guide. One of the best we've ever had. Winsome personality, on time, personal and engaging. A well-organized tour, and was flexible in making changes to meet our desires. Very knowledgeable about local history and customs, particularly Moari . Gave an excellent walking tour of the city. Wonderful insight and personal information about the making of the 'Lord of the Rings' movies. Highly recommend him as a guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Kia ora Ken. Thank you very much. I had a great day with you both and enjoyed sharing some of my home and some of our history with you. You'll have to come back when Old St Pauls is open again though. ;-)

Robbie was on time to pick us up from the airport. He has good knowledge and showed us all important places. The weather was not great, but who can control it. Overall 5 star for Robbie. Gopi

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. It was great to meet you all and to be able to share some time in my beautiful home. Like you say, not even I can control the weather, but I did manage to get it to clear up for you by the end. ;-) I hope you had a fairly smooth sailing on the ferry.

Robbie proved to be all we could hope for in a tour guide. He had a great plan for our day in Wellington but accommodated our needs seamlessly. He was fun and funny and shared his considerable knowledge of the area, the Maiori, their language and history with the enthusiasm of someone who loves his community and is proud to share it with strangers anxious to learn. Our day included views of the city, cable car rides, and lunch at the Chocolate Fish. We saw everything that could be fit in the time we had.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Kia ora Diane Thank you very much. I had a really enjoyable day with you all as well and it was my pleasure to share my beautiful home with you. I'm glad you enjoyed everything and I hope you're practising all the Māori words and Kiwi slang I gave you.

Hands down Robbie is one of the best guides we have met during our trip. He was very entertaining, energetic and fun. He took us to some of the locations where they filmed Lord of the Rings. (We didn't know he was an extra in the film.) He took us to the breathtaking views of Mount Victoria and drove us around the bay. He gave us lots of opportunities to take in photos and soak in the beautiful views. He also treated us to a delicious lunch and he gave us beautiful souvenirs! Thank you so much Robbie!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Kia ora Susan Thank you very much. I had a great day with you all as well and it was my pleasure to show you around my beautiful home and to share some of my experiences with you. I'm glad you got to do the Weta tour as well, as that is an enjoyable experience in Wellington. Robbie

Excellent tour of Wellington NZ. Robbie really knows the city, and he structured the tour to avoid lines at the various sites. He adjusted the tour for the young grandchildren. He pre-arranged a wonderful place for lunch overlooking the harbor. A day well spent with a delightful guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. It was an enjoyable day with you all. Glad the grandkids enjoyed the impromptu scavenger hunt as well.

There were 6 of us on a private tour by Robbie. He did a wonderful job on showing us all of the major sites of the City. Was very congenial and professional. He provided all of the additional items for the tour, so it was one price covered all. He took us to the Chocolate Fish restaurant and had a great lunch at a novel eatery. Gave us all plenty of time and great locations for photo shoots. Harry

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. It was great to meet you all and it's always my privilege to show you around my beautiful home. I'm glad you enjoyed your time here and I hope you enjoyed the rest of your cruise.

Robbie tour of Wellington was so awesome. He has so much knowledge about Wellington and the Maori people. Mt. Victoria overlooking Wellington was so beautiful. We went on the cable car and walked through downtown Wellington and had lunch with the locals which was delicious and such a quaint restaurant. We saw the main sites of Wellington and more. Robbie was fun and very enthusiastic. He had a nice vehicle which was perfect for four of us. Great private tour. Way to go with Robbie!

This tour was excellent. Robbie was Amazing. We had 2 young children with us and Robbie was so flexible and accommodating to our wants and needs on the tour. He picked us up from our cruise ship dock, and the day was so enjoyable and stress free. We all had a great time. Robbie had really great knowledge of the area, and had modified the tour slightly to suit our own interests. I highly recommend Robbie, and would definitely do another tour with him, if we ever returned to Wellington.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks very much. It was great to meet you all and your kids behaved amazingly well too. I'm always happy to change and adjust on the day as necessary.

We had a great time touring Wellington with Robbie! A private tour is the way to go because Robbie was very flexible to our needs while at the same time recommending all the key sites we should see in his home town. We learned he is a history major so his historical knowledge of Wellington and New Zealand is excellent. Something that fits well with my husbands thirst for knowledge. Being in the New Zealand's capital city was very special and Robbie made sure we experienced all that was special here.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks very much Robyn. It was great to meet you both yesterday and share some of the highlights and some of the history of my home town with you. Hope you didn't get too sunburnt and enjoy the rest of your travels.
