What people are saying about Wellington

Totally different experience for us. Suburbs of Wellington certainly have a great selection of cultural ethnic small family operated eateries. That if we did not go with Guide Jon, we would not have really ventured out of down town Wellington; in our short stay in the Capital.. The tour itinerary in retrospect was to us, quite personalised. We have never subscribed to a tour which appealed both to the eye and one's taste buds plus presented a unique contrast with every stop. Jon our guide very relaxed but professional. comfortable safe vehicle and great commentary on the localities we visited.

This is a great way to delve into the craft beer world. I tired some flavors of beer that I didnt even think were possible, and found out all the science behind them. It really is a craft, and each brewery we went to did things quite unique. It was great to hear about the history of the buildings and the area of each brewery also. Some very passionate brewers out there and was great to meet and talk to them.

This was a truly super experience. Jon Salter took us to places you would NEVER find on your own. Highly recommend this walking tour. Coming back for the Cocktail Tour ..... sounds awesome to us!!!

Mike knows his stuff. This was an excellent tour and it doesn't matter how much/little you know about craft beer, the brew teams and mike cover the lot with a great drop or two :)

It was the first helicopter ride for my sister and I and it was fantastic. Best pilot, views and the dolphins were the absolute bonus. Highly recommend ..just do it.
