What You Can Expect

Wellington City Sights and Coast Tour

Mt Victoria, Wellington

Get an overview of Wellington, New Zealand’s dynamic capital, on this 2.5-hour sightseeing tour — a great introduction for those short on time. Meet your driver-guide at a central location and get settled aboard the comfortable coach, then listen to informative commentary on Wellington’s history and landmarks.

Pass by the neoclassical Parliament House and learn about the unusual architectural design of the Beehive (aka Executive Wing). You’ll make a stop at the heritage-listed Old St Paul’s Church to walk around and admire its timber construction.

Meander the paths of the 62-acre (25-hectare) Wellington Botanic Garden, following your guide to the Begonia House and Lady Norwood Rose Garden. Opt for a scenic 5-minute ride from here to the city center on the Wellington Cable Car (own expense).

Next, your coach motors up to the Mt Victoria lookout, which boasts sweeping views over Wellington, before returning to the coast. You’ll pass through Oriental Parade, Seatoun and Thorndon, and soak up the bustling atmosphere of the Wellington waterfront, before your tour ends.

Another great tour of the Wellington area we got to see plenty and our guide was polite and lovely! Not only is it inexpensive but it takes you around the entire city which is great for scouting out spots to walk to and check out later.

I've always had great experiences using Viator and this tour was no different. Our tour guide, Rob, was friendly, accommodating and full of interesting little facts about Wellington and New Zealand. If you're short on time and would like to get a nice all-round feel for the city, as well as check out some of the main sights, then this tour would definitely work for you.
