Tour of Wellington City and Coastal areas
Mar 2020
Our guide was Kelvin and he is an excellent guide who provided my wife and I a first class tour which was very informative and totally enjoyable for us.
We saw all the important sites in Wellington and around the Wellington area, and particularly enjoyed the Capital buildings, tram, coastal and mountainous scenic viewing, gardens and the lovely lunch at the Chocolate Fish restaurant.
A totally amazing day.
Thank you again, Kelvin!

Fabulous private tour
Feb 2020
Although we were not expecting it, this ended up being a private day tour. Our guide was excellent. We saw a lot of scenery out side of the city proper, loved the Weta studio and were treated to a wonderful fish lunch. Highly recommend.

Great day out
Nov 2019
The Weta workshop tour was very interesting as we got to see up close real props. The Chocolate Fish restaurant had great sandwiches and smoothies. John our guide was very knowledgeable and very accommodating to make it as easy as possible for us as my wife uses a wheelchair.

Thank you for an enjoyable and extensive tour of Wellington
Thank you for an enjoyable and extensive tour of Wellington, Kelvin. We enjoyed exploring the beauty of the City, especially visiting Mt Victoria, the War Memorial and walking through the Botanical Garden after the Cable Car ride. The visit to the Weta Workshop was another highlight and we also enjoyed learning about the Parliament buildings. The lunch at the Chocolate Fish cafe was delicious!

A definite high point of our trip
Sep 2019
John was extremely knowledgeable and easy to speak to during our tour. We were able to work out our own destinations and had a full trip around the city to give us a great starting point for our vacation.

I would suggest reaching out and doing this day 1 of any trip to Wellington! Not only will you get your bearings in the city, but it helps to have someone with so much knowledge of the city help you determine what other activities you may want to do while visiting!

Best tour day of our holiday
Mar 2019 • Couples
This was by far the BEST tour of our vacation, our guide was friendly, knowledgable and fun. A visit to Weta special effects studio, a visit to an outlet souvenier shop, lunch at a local restaurant, cable car ride a walk through the Botanic Gardens and several scenic lookouts, as well as the city itself, gave us a very informative and enjoyable view of Wellington. Highly recommend Capital Personalised Tours to anyone

Fantastic Private tour of Wellington
Jan 2019 • Friends
My sister and I did this tour in January 2019. I had booked a private tour as my sister has knee issues and I knew a bus tour would not be suitable.
John picked us up at our hotel and we were off on a busy day of sightseeing. John had a fantastic knowledge of his city and was very informative and friendly. He was also very accommodating to my sister's needs, parking close to venues etc. John drove us to a souvenir outlet for some shopping whilst he collected our tickets for the Weta cave tour. It was a great little shop and I priced items we purchased there, in Lambton Quay, and we made significant savings. Though not a fan of Lord of the Rings, the Weta cave tour was very interesting. John drove us past Peter Jackson's home and we were lucky enough to see him exit his home and drive to the studio.
We had a nice lunch at the Chocolate Fish and John introduced us to the owner. The lady gave us a little bag of treats including a chocolate fish and shortbread fish to snack on.We rode on the cable car and had look at the rose gardens. Unfortunately the little church we were going to look around was closed for a private function. We chose not to do a lot of walking as my sister's knee issues had flared just before we left Australia, but John made sure we saw the main sights of Wellington and surrounds and had a great day out!

Great sights in Wellington and lot of info on New Zealand
Oct 2018
What a great day! Kelvin, our guide, picked us up in a 4 wheel drive vehicle which surprised us. We did not know we were going off road to find seals along the rocky coast. Only one seal that day, but what a gorgeous coast! We saw all the sights of Wellington including a Weta Cave tour (must see), the cable car that took us to the Botantical Gardens, Mt. Victoria, the government buildings, St. Paul's, the coast line, etc. We had a great lunch at Chocolate Fish Cafe--fish chowder was fantastic. And we had really interesting commentary from and conversation with Kelvin. He even sent us on our way with some goodies from Chocolate Fish. Thanks for a great day.
