    Whilst touring NZ recently we had the opportunity of an organised trip around Wellington with Explor Tours. From go to woe, it was well organised and we were taken to many places of interest. Would recommend Explor Tours for travellers to NZ.

    I live in Wellington and thought I knew all there was to know - but Richard knew better (and more). His XPlor tour was informative, great fun and his patter never dull! When friends come to stay, we'll certainly recommend Richard to them.
