This was a wonderful experience. We only met one kiwi but to see one in the wild was amazing! Have already recommended toe trip to several travellers that we have met along the way!
We had a very good day
The vision for Zealandia is superb. I found the introduction and film a trifle long, being keen to get into the valley among the birds. I would liked to have been able to sit down and listen quietly to the sounds of the bush sounds at some point(s). Otherwise it was an amazing experience; after 67 years I saw a kiwi hunting in the wild.
A nice and interesting trip. I didn't allow enough time on this occasion. I will allow more time on the next occasion.
We loved our visit to Zealandia. There were only a few in our group and the guide was wonderful. We learned about their efforts to preserve the unique species of the island. We saw kiwis in two different areas plus tuatara, Takahe, and many others. Would highly recommend the night tour of the sanctuary.

Very knowledgeable and friendly guide and with such a small tour group, it was easy to talk and have all questions answered.

A remarkable Tour Guide - Brought Wellington and Maori Culture alive - couldn't speak highly enough of the whole day. Arrangements were to the book for pick up too.

Well looked after and enjoyed tour. The weather was unfortunate so limited what we could see but our tour guide was very accommodating and informative. Many thanks.

Very good tour, great introduction to Wellington, driver very friendly and good local knowledge including tips on restaurants.

Good value with a super guide., taking in not only the city but of particular attraction the scenic coastal route around. Again, as with Auckland, the coach was cramped and vision accordingly restricted - I assume a bigger vehicle could be laid on with larger windows and spacious seating.

The guide for this tour was excellent! She was funny, engaging, informative and her knowledge of Wellington's history and Maori history was great!

Absolutely fantastic. Our guide was so informative and a lovely lady. Saved heaps of money going through Viator rather than booking shore trips from the cruise line.
My guide was wonderful - a 'Wellingtonian' born and bred and so knowledgeable and passionate about her home city and country. Highly recommended!
This was my last tour and like the others it was excellent! The tour leader was fantastic he had a great sense of humor and really was a great speaker. We went to many different spots.
