'Great way to get a good feel for Wellington, highly recommend. Did local chocolate, peanut butter, gelato, coffee, then finished with lunch at Logan Brown - one of the best places in Wellington. Met lots of the owners and got a great tour from Fabs! Great way to experience the city, support some local businesses and get some great food. One of the top tours.'
