“Best day in Wellington! You must take this tour! It is individualized to what you want to see and do.

Suzee was fantastic. She took us all over the city and the coast, recommending the best stops along the way. She knew the best time to stop with no waits or lines. She let us try some of New Zealand’s best food and treats and showed us the best of Wellington. We truly made a new friend on the best tour of our trip from the U.S. Thank you Suzee. We hope we can meet again someday. You’re the best!”

Top Notch Tour! This tour was sensational! Jo picked up our family (5 adults) from the dock outside of the cruise ship and showed us the beautiful city of Wellington. She did an impressive job of explaining all the amazing sites we visited. Her driving skills on the narrow, windy streets were unbelievable.

She took us to eat lunch at a delicious vegetarian restaurant called The Botanist because she knew we are vegans. This highlights what was one great thing about this tour in that it was a private tour, personalized for us. Highly recommend!!”


uTours Rocks!!! From the pre-tour call to the customized itinerary to the thoughtful, personal small touches – we had a wonderful experience with uTours. Getting to see and know Wellington with Suzee our guide was like touring with family (but without any crazy drama). We really appreciated her knowledge, passion and positivity regarding the Wellington region.

Felt more like locals after our day together – which we did not want to end. If you are looking for a cattle-car, large group cruise ship excursion then don’t bother with uTours. If you want a personalized experience with a lovely Kiwi – then you’ve found your resource!”
