The team at What to do in Wellington NZ live in Wellington and are passionate about this unique little city that everyone’s talking about. In fact, Lonely Planet voted Wellington the ‘coolest little capital in the world’ not so long ago. How about that?! We reckon there’s more than enough to keep the seasoned traveller or resident Kiwi busy for at least a week although we recognise if time is short that’s unlikely.

You can contact us by email or telephone. Our advice is absolutely free and is based on first-hand experiences of Wellington. If you would like a detailed wellington itinerary, fantastic, we can put one together for you immediately.
Katie Grealish – Born in Wellington but has lived and worked in London for 10 years as a travel consultant for various established tour operators and travel agents. Katie is keen to share her knowledge of Wellington especially if you are travelling here with children (she has two of her own). She can advise on where the best kids activities are including cafes, parks and playgrounds.
Sarah Kemp – Works part time with the team at What to do in Wellington and is happy to put together specific itineraries based on how many nights you decide to stay in Wellington.
Aidan Grealish – Born and raised in Wellington and still a keen skate boarder at the age of 35. Aidan now specialises in walking tours around Wellington. If you like interesting shops, cafes, buildings and streets contact him for a very personalised tour for some great off the beaten track sights, tastes and sounds.
Jerry Bridge – Is the boss and, although he was born and brought up in London, has been living in Wellington for the past six years. Friends call him ‘Travelman’ by the way, because of his extensive journeys around the world and various travel industry involvements ( Bridge the World & Bridge & Wickers ). Here’s his Linkedin CV profile page if you’re interested. New Zealand’s Dominion Post also wrote a short Q&A newspaper article, recently covering various aspects of his travel career. If you would like to view an amazing and highly informative 8 minute film about the early days of how the travel industry began, take a look at the Bridge Travel video – it’s an absolute classic.
For those interested in a half or full day tour of Wellington contact Jerry as soon as you know your dates. He guarantees his highly personalised day tour will be fun, informative and fantastic value!
We have all travelled extensively around New Zealand too and can advise you on where the best places to visit are. Feel free to ask us any question about holidaying in New Zealand and especially about all the best things to do in Wellington.
