Visiting from Australia for 2 weeks. Contacted Brian on the 26-05-21to book a half day tour of Wellington and upper and lower Hutt area. Quick reply on line and gave a full explanation of the next days tour. Unfortunately for Brian he only had 2 bookings but luckily for us he went ahead with a smaller vehicle. He was a real local and made us feel welcome straight away. If you are visiting Wellington do not miss this tour. Leaves the Hop on Hop off for dead. Very reasonable price and great local knowledge. Thanks again Brian. Rob and Lisa Newton

One for the memory books
Feb 2020
Talk of the Town tours is family owned and run. Brian is the owner and is the greatest tour guide around. I was reading some previous reviews and they were spot on with ours. 4 of us, so Brian gave us a full day tour and we did get a photo stop by the Penguin Crossing Road signs. In fact, he stopped any where we asked, even ran into a grocery store for a second. Stopped near the beach for an outside patio lunch, Brian ate with us. This was the most memorable tour we took on New Zealand and the only one I am reviewing, because of Brian's above and beyond the call of duty. This tour company is a must!

Thanks so much for the great review. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed the tour. It was a pleasure showing you around our beautiful city and perhaps one day when it is safe to travel we will see you back here in NZ. I hope you have been able to keep safe and well in such difficult times. Brian

Brian met us at the cruise ship and there was only one other couple. So he drove us around for the entire day, not a half day! He showed us so much and let us stop for pictures. His timing at our stops was perfect, and he was pleasant and knowledgeable. Great day, great guide, great tour.

An amazing outing
Feb 2020
My husband and I had a fabulous day touring around Wellington with Brian. We were so grateful that he did the tour since there were only 4 of us. It actually made everything more personal.

We even did an impromptu lunch on the beach and a stop by the WETA studios gift shop.

The only thing we didn't get... and teased Brian about.... was a photo of the Penguin Crossing road signs by the beaches. We'll be looking for that photo in his Trip Advisor listing now. :)

I HIGHLY recommend this tour.

Great Site Seeing Tour
Feb 2020
We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with Brian looking at the different sites throughout Wellington. Brian was prompt in picking us up at the ship port, and very accommodating as far as stopping when we wanted to take pictures, etc. We went to many areas of Wellington during the 6-hour tour, which included several bays and lookout points. The tour was capped off by taking a trip on the Wellington Cable Car and a brief visit to the Wellington Botantical Gardens. As a travel advisor myself, I would highly recommend Brian and Talk of the Town Tours. Thank you, Brian!

Great Tour of Wellington
Dec 2019 • Couples
Brian was a very informative, friendly and relaxed host taking us to both well known areas of Wellington, and some of the lesser known.
Being able to view both Wellington and Lower Hutt gave us a great appreciation of the area.
Would highly recommend Brian when visiting this region.
