“What a magnificent day with Suzee! She picked us up in a really nice van and brought local NZ-made drinks and snacks for us. We were able to see a few highlights in Wellington on our day with her that we couldn’t get done the day before (Parliament, cable car, etc.) and then she got us out of the city.
The area around Wellington is beautiful! She took us to many beautiful places including Paraparaumu Beach, the Kapiti Island lookout, the Paekākāriki Marine’s Memorial, the Paekākāriki Hill Road lookout, and Mt. Victoria. We had lunch together where the locals go – great fish and chips! Suzee surprised us with a trip to a farm where we saw incredible things – won’t go into detail as I don’t want to ruin it for others.
It is one of the best things we did on our trip to NZ, and we now have a great appreciation for Wellington and the surrounding area. Suzee felt like family immediately and we will definitely stay in touch with her.”

“What a delight it was meeting smiling Suzee of uTours. Instantly felt at home. We spent a fantastic day exploring only the best sites in the region. We enjoyed a drink at a coffee shop where locals mingle, providing a glimpse into Wellington lifestyles & its communities.
The tour diverted off the beaten track to explore a few hidden gems, through, green hills and valleys. Stopped at vantage points to capture and enjoy the sights.
We headed back to Wellington along coastline – equally as stunning. In a nutshell we spent a fun filled memorable day with Suzee. Throughout the tour, Suzee’s conversation and commentary was engaging, she pleasantly answered all our questions. Suzee is incredibly patient and informative sharing her wealth of knowledge about Wellington.
Highly recommend uTours.”
