          Excellent day in and around Wellington - thank you Selwyn!
          We did a private full-day LOTR tour, to include a visit to Wētā Workshop (separate review for that, also recommended). We were fortunate to have Selwyn as our guide for the day and really appreciate his in depth knowledge of the city and surroundings - especially where and how to avoid traffic! He was able to squeeze in a couple additional stops, and helped us get some outstanding photos at each location. For lunch, his choice of the Chocolate Fish was perfect. Food was great, and it’s a very fun local spot - that also had a good story. We visited a number of filming locations before and after the Wētā tour. Selwyn also provided a great recommendation for dinner near our hotel, as well as an all important post dinner ice cream stop. We had a lovely day in all respects and we are very happy to have been connected with Capital Personalised Tours and with Selwyn.

          Awesome day in Wellington (LOTR Tour)
          We had a wonderful day in Wellington. Our guide, Steve, was excellent and showed us around the LOTR film sites, giving us ample time for photos and to look around. Steve was very informative and we had great discussions about New Zealand and more. We had a lovely lunch at Chocolate Fish, tour at WETA workshop, and driving tour around Wellington. Would highly recommend the private tour!

          Fantastic personalised tour
          I booked this one quite quickly and did not actually understand just how personalised it was going to be! Coming off a ship with 4500 other passengers I assumed we'd be picked up in a bus and taken around but no, me and my two friends were surprised and delighted to learn this trip was just for the three of us! We were picked up by Kelvin and driven around Wellington to see the sights and it was marvellous. We booked a LoTR sights tour but because we weren't THAT much into the movies we made good time on those stops and as such Kelvin used the spare time to show us some of the other beautiful places around Wellington. It was great to be driven around and told about the culture and history and other bits of trivia. We were taken out for lunch (included) to a wonderful fish restaurant and taken back to the ship in good time. Lots of thanks to Kelvin! We had a great time in Wellington and thoroughly enjoyed your company.

          Awesome Tour
          Steve was an amazing guide. Very knowledgeable, very accommodating and very friendly. He made the tour enjoyable, and very special, and was so easy to talk to. I was very impressed with the whole process. From booking the tour to prompt replies to my queries, and for providing such a great service. We both had an awesome day and will certainly be recommending you.

          A most memorable day out
          A great small group (just the two of us) wine tour where I met a very interesting wine lover and had Andrew as our driver, tour guide, local historian and advisor. He was brilliant in creating a relaxed experience and a friendly atmosphere. We tried a few wineries and had a wonderful meal included. The staff at the wineries were all well versed in their products and made us welcome. Not a cheap tour but worth every cent to have it personalised.

          sights of Wellington
          great tour operator. our guide was very nice and had many facts to share with us. this private tour for our party of 6 was much better than the ones where they cram 40 or 50 people together on a bus and nearly the same price. I would recommend Capital Personalised Tours to anyone.

          The best tour I've ever done.
          Kelvin, our driver was marvelous, he knew of our ship's 1 hour earlier departure even before he arrived. Family/friend trip for 8 and our mobility impaired folks were well accommodated by him. Fantastic sights, awesome commentary, great suggestions to tailor the trip to what we wanted to see/do . I highly recommend this company...and an extemely delicious lunch was provided! Fantastic time had by all!

          Very Good Tour With Andrew
          We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Andrew. He tailored the itinerary to just what we wanted. He had a lot of knowledge (and jokes) to share with us throughout the day. He took us to a wonderful restaurant for lunch! The only reason I didn't give this a 5 is because the vehicle was too small for five people. We were very uncomfortable in the back. We needed to be in a larger vehicle.

          LOTR Full day tour from Wellington with Robbie
          My husband and I enjoyed a full day LOTR tour from Wellington with Robbie - it was incredible! Robbie was super friendly, funny, and knowledgeable. His experience as an extra in the movies gave him wonderful insight and stories to share with us. We had an amazing time and would not hesitate to recommend this tour! Thank you Robbie!!

          Excellent full day tour of Wellington
          This tour more than met our expectations. Sam was an excellent guide and, having limited time in Wellington, we were really happy with all we saw which included Mt Victoria, beaches, Weta Cave, the Wellington cable car, botanic gardens, old St Paul’s church and the old and current parliament buildings. We had a lovely and relaxing lunch at the Chocolate Fish Cafe. Highly recommend this tour.

          Big Promises, No Delivery
          First of all, the guide Sam was a delightful man who tried very hard, but had little to work with. Some of the so called attractions were drive bye at best, some did not happen! The only attraction of any value was The Bird Sanctuary. The beaches were a quick look without leaving the car, the brewery was closed and the chocalate factory did not require an entry as it was basically a store vending overpriced items. We chose to skip The Car Museaum as we just wanted this dreadful day to be over! We can think of no valid reason to venture on this useless, overpriced tour

          We had a full day Lord of the Rings tour in Wellington, with our guide Kelvin. He was very knowledgeable about every location and gave us great photo opportunities! Kelvin is charismatic and pleasant to talk to, the added bonus of his friendly personality made our tour very enjoyable :-)

          Amazing private wine tour Martinborough
          Our guide Selwyn was excellent. Very knowledgeable and friendly. We toured 3 vineyards and had an excellent lunch at Poppies. He gave us a mini city tour at the end and drove us to the top of Mt Victoria at the end. I highly recommend this tour company.

          Great tour of Wellington with Andrew
          Windy day in Wellington, but great tour! Andrew was a good guide. Due to an event in the city, he adjusted the tour and we kept busy seeing beautiful sites outside the city center. Saw outstanding beaches and vistas, Peter Jackson’s production facilities and store (bought and avid Hobbit friend a t-shirt), Old St. Paul’s church, rode the cable car, saw National Govt buildings. Great lunch at the Chocolate Fish. and Andrew bought us some chocolate fish to try. yummy local treat. Also had time to spend a little time in the National Museum of New Zealand. Great Gallipoli exhibit.

        This was the perfect final day in Wellington! Our guide, Andrew, did a wonderful job of navigating some very windy and rainy weather, as well as an unexpected (for us) national holiday...he gave us a lot of great information about Wellington and the Valley on our drive out, and we really enjoyed the winery selections (and were able to even add on a few wine stops of our own at the end!). A definite highlight for me was the lunch stop at Poppie's - we were able to do a wine tasting with Poppy herself, and then enjoyed a really well put together (and filling) charcuterie plate with a full glass (or two, in our case). Really wonderful day, and was so appreciative of Andrew's flexibility with our questions and winery additions! Highly recommend!

        We enjoyed this tour with another couple (very nice Aussie's) guided by Andrew. This trip was way more than expected. Andrew stopped at several Lord of The Rings filming sites including Helm's Deep (a quarry) and provided a LTR tour book to review. We made several scenic overlook stops. Andrew was able to add historical personal references from family history of ANZACs and had a notebook of copies of newspaper clippings relevant to the story. Then we visited three outstanding wineries and ate at Poppie's with a fine charcuterie board including pork belly and our favorite wine choice. We stopped to enjoy a coffee at a local coffee shop and then ventured into an award winning chocolatier that offered samples. The chocolate lemongrass was our favorite. Then on our way back Andrew offered to drive us into Wellington for a quick view of the city and then back to the cruise ship on time. This was a wonderful tour and highly recommended. Kudos to Andrew.

        Thank you John for a great day out, showing us around your lovely waipara region and along the lovely scenic coast, as well as a stroll around the beautiful Greytown, through Martinborough, Featherston and Ngaw fishing village . We so enjoyed the Fish n Chips at the Lake Ferry Hotel, then on to the seal colony which you were able to take us up really close to view them in their natural habitat. On to Cape Palliser Lighthouse to work off our lunch up the 254 steps to the magnificent views, oh WOW!
        Fantastic day! John was very knowledgeable and informative, showing us other little point of interests along the way. We would highly recommend .

        Tom picked us up promptly from our cruise ship in Wellington and delivered us back safely with time to spare. In between we had a great day, visiting Kaitoke Regional Park and C'est Cheese on the way to Maryinborough. Once there we sampled lovely wines at Palliser Estate, Schuberts, Te Kairanga and Poppies. At Poppies we had a wonderful luch platter with dietary requirements perfectly catered for. All in all, a great day.

        Did the trip as a small family group. It was a real treat to do this with Capital Personalised Tours - no one had to do all the booking and arranging, or volunteer as the sober driver! This is the perfect way to do a day trip to Martinborough, the service was excellent and meant that we had a wonderful, stress-free day. Would highly recommend.
