What You Can Expect

Wellington City Sightseeing Small-Group Tour

St Gerrards Monastery, Wellington

You'll be picked up from your Wellington hotel and travel by air-conditioned luxury mini-coach. Wellington is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city that's packed with drama, beauty, and pride. This tour gives you a unique, unforgettable day in one of the world's most beautiful cities.

Travel around the earthquake-scarred south coast to see the ruins of the Wahine ferry disaster and the distant ranges of the South Island, overlooked by the coasters' houses perched on the steep, rocky hills. Enjoy the views of the harbor and Matiu Sommes Island, a deceptively pretty place where prisoners of war were quarantined during World War II.

Enjoy panoramic views of Wellington city and harbor from the top of Mt Victoria. Take a trip on the cable car, a charming and picturesque transport that is one of the few surviving in the world.

In Thorndon, New Zealand's oldest suburb, visit the magnificent Parliament buildings and gorgeous Old St Paul's Cathedral. See the famous Beehive, the seat of government.

Your sightseeing tour concludes with a visit to the national museum, Te Papa, where you can explore the interactive displays and extraordinary mix of Maori and European heritage.

Our guide Craig told us from the beginning that he doesn't usually do this specific tour...but it didn't matter. He did a tremendous job tailoring the tour to focus on the things we wanted to see.

We had our driver (Mike) to ourselves so he was able to personalize our tour to suit. He was very experienced and knowlegeable, showing the essential highlights of a great city.

What a fantastic day, we had a charismatic host Nathan, who made the day all about us. The day was tailored to our wants, needs, and desires. Wellington is such a beautiful city with its unusual layout and quirkiness, Nathan is very passionate about his city and it rubbed off. I initially picked this tour just to fill in a day but I was very wrong, I learnt so much while having fun and got to see so many things that I never would have. We stopped off at a beautiful little cafe by the beach for lunch, went to the Weta studios, Mt Victoria lookout, Parliament and Beehive buildings, Te Papa, Wellington Zoo, cable car, and St Paul's Cathedral. We also stopped off at some unusual spots for some photo opportunities. I cant thank Nathan enough for a warm welcome to Wellington and showing us his wonderful city in a beatiful new airconditioned mini van.
