wellington lord of the rings tours nz

Rover Rings Tours offers small group tours for travellers, wanting to make the most of all that Wellington and the region has to offer. We have been around since October 2002 and developed into the ‘best little sightseeing tour company in Wellington’.

Originally  founded by Jason Bragg, who decided a degree in Psychology and English Literature would be best utilized driving and guiding tour groups all over New Zealand. After 3 years ‘learning the ropes’ in NZ and a couple of years as a safari guide in Africa, he returned home and began developing the Rover Tours concept.

That concept is based on passionate, well educated, well travelled guides showing small groups of travellers around Wellington. Our tours are designed around interactive conversations rather than boring old fashioned commentary. Our range of tours are basically themed explorations of Wellington suited to different travellers.

The company is now owned & operated by Scott Courtney, a local Wellingtonian, passionate about showing off Wellington’s best places.  Our people make us different. We search for and intensively train up the best individuals we can find into great guides so we can offer the best small group interactive tours in Wellington. That is the Rover difference.
