Your guide, Craig Stoddart, is a long-time Wellingtonian.  He's researched some of the city's most interesting crimes, as well as some of the black moments and colourful characters of Wellington's history.

Craig will take you to places around the city where dark deeds were done and where history was made.

The Terrace is now Wellington's commercial canyon of high-rise office buildings, but it has secrets.  The Terrace Gaol, where floggings and hangings were commonplace, is now all but forgotten, more recently though, there was a double murder of a father and son, both businessmen, in broad daylight in their office building.  And there are plenty of other "underbelly" stories Craig can tell you about and transport you to the scene.

Some are bizarre, some are sad but all interesting and not your usual tourist fare.

Capital Crimes is a tour for the broad-minded visitor who is interested in social history, not just scenery.  Put some adventure into your outing.  Even if you are a local do something different after dinner our for your guests after a dinner party.

Tours are on demand and can be made exclusive.  We can cater for couples or up to 11 people.
