    Kelvin was a fabulous guide. He fit so much in 7 hours, more than I would have been able to see through the cruise ship. He was so knowledgeable about Wellington and NZ - I learned a ton about the government structure, film production, and the city. And he was fun to talk with all day as well.

    We just had a fantastic day out in Wellington with our guide Kelvie. We hadn't seen much of Wellington before but we certainly have now. Great company, great weather and a great day out. Thanks very much.
