WOWW (World of Wonderful Wine Tour)
Sep 2020
Our group of ladies visit Wellington every year for WOW - no show this year but we came anyway and decided to venture a bit further this time. Thankyou for such a fabulous day out Richard - we all thoroughly enjoyed it and had a blast. You were such a great tour host - slightly outnumbered by females but it didn't bother you in the least!! You really looked after us and we appreciated your knowledge of the beautiful Martinborough area and the wonderful wineries there. You did everything you could to make our day special. So glad we booked our trip with you :) Cheers!!

We found our host accomodating to our needs..Richard our host tailored our tour to our requests which at the last moment included a wonderful stop over to view a fabulous garden. We highly recommend Richard and his company! T and L Australia!

Best day ever
Jan 2019 • Solo
Spur of the moment decision to book this trip. From being picked up at my hotel to being dropped off at the end of the day Richard made it a fun interesting day with lots of laughs. We were just a small group but it felt like we were friends having a great day out. I would highly recommend as a solo traveller.

What a fabulous experience
Oct 2018 • Family
I can't recommend Explor tours highly enough. We had a fabulous visit and Richard managed to keep 3 generations of family entertained. He was knowledgeable and interesting and added some fun into the mix as well. We so enjoyed our tour with you. Thank you so much from the Conn / Tower family!

Hi Towers and grandma Conn. Thank you very much for the review. We had fun on the tour which is want my clients to experience. Marion you and your mum were brave doing the swinging bridge. I know that Mary would have wanted a bit more swing but it is my job to ensure everyone is comfortable on my tours. I hope you enjoy the GIN!!! Once again a big THANKS!!

Explor exceptional experiences on 2 different Explor tours with Richard
Oct 2018 • Solo
This was my first ever solo trip during WOW and I was a bit worried about what to do .
I contacted Explor tours and Richard helped me with two tour options
1. Day trip around Wellington -shared with a group
2. Wine day trip - private tour

From the moment Richard picked me up from my hotel , he made me feel comfortable as he did for every person in the group . While seeing all the sites of Wellington he added lots of humour and fun into the day . Richard also helps take photos and gets the best pics of everyone that we wouldn’t have know to do without him. Wellington was stunning and every area we visited added a different dimension to the views already seen and interesting facts .The special little treats along the way and Richards genuine care for everyone makes this an expetional experience that I highly recommend and want to bring my other half with me next time .

My wine trip was just exceptional in every way . This was a private tour so just Richard and I with a tight time schedule as I was flying out later that day . Richard took care of all the timings and created the most perfect day for me - 3 separate wine tastings , a gorgeous pub lunch and a wonderful tour through the countryside into elvishland . I loved every minute of it .wines fabulous but Richard talked me into having a tasting of gin which I don’t drink but do now as it was so superb 😋 Richard was a wealth of knowledge and I felt like I was driving along with a friend chatting and enjoying the wonderful company and spectacular scenery - so green and lush compared to where I live . I never looked a my watch once and relaxed totally while Richard delivered me to the airport at exactly the time he said he would .
So for me this is a no brainer - just book 😊and enjoy

All I can say is thank you so much Richard loved your tours and your company .
Ps I’m excited that I’m not a hobbit and that’s a Wow😂😂 fact !

Hi Cathie Thank you very much for your review. WOW! What can I say, your review is great!!! I really enjoyed taking you on the two tours. It was like going around with a friend that I had known for years not just a few hours. Your smile is infectious and you have a great personality. You must also be a bit of a dare devil with the way you had the swinging bridge moving. So a BIG THANK YOU and hope to see you and your husband on your next visit to Wellington.

Excellent trip discovering Wellington and Martinborough Wine Experience!
Sep 2018
We had an amazing time with Richard on our Xplor tour discovering Wellington and the Martinborough Wine Experience. Every moment was incredible fun filled with the most amazing sights, food, wine and above all the people were the best. Richard made all the difference in our tour. Richard is a native who knows the regions very best, its history and showed us the best time ever with much laughter. Thank you so much Richard it was an amazing day filled with memories of a life time...
I look forward to returning to Wellington and most certainly seeing you on another Xplor tour again! Take care. Cheers, Gina
