Must See and Fun Tour of Wellington Where your Wellington adventure begins … Features include: Downtown entertainment area of Wellington Mt Victoria Rugged Coastline Weta Cave Southern Hemisphere’s largest roundabout War Memorial park Cable Car Lady Norwood Rose Gardens Southern Hemisphere’s largest wooden building Parliament Grounds Old St Paul’s Cathedral


Details of Tour:

Picturesque and unforgettably beautiful, Wellington is nestled around a sparkling, bustling harbour with residential housing extending up the sides of green valley hills.  Voted at number 12 of the top 20 most liveable cities in the world for 2016, you will not be disappointed with your tour of our lovely city.

This tour will delight you with breath-taking scenic views and photo opportunities, along with the fun of experiencing first-hand some of our favourite tourist attractions. 

You will be picked up from your cruise ship and we will continue downtown, passing the Te Papa Museum of New Zealand, before we drive up to the top of Mount Victoria to see spectacular panoramic views of Wellington’s city and harbour.  Have your cameras ready!

We continue driving around the rugged coastline on our way to Weta Studios on the Miramar Peninsula for your Lord of the Rings experience with a 15 minute visit to Weta Cave where you will have a chance to purchase Lord of the Rings memorabilia (for any Tolkein fans) and more photo opportunities.

Passing through the popular Oriental Bay beach area is next on the list before we venture through the different parts of the inner city, through the main café and entertainment part of Wellington, and see where the red carpet area was laid out for the Premiere of Lord of the Rings.

Next is a ride on the iconic Wellington cable car (ticket included) which first carried passengers in 1902.

After you have travelled to the top in the cable car and visited the quaint museum at that end, you will have more breath-taking panoramic views of the harbour and city.  Then we drive through the lovely Lady Norwood Rose Gardens, before seeing Parliament Buildings and its grounds before concluding the tour with a visit to Old St Paul’s cathedral, a beautiful 152 year old gothic-designed church.

You are then returned to your cruise ship, or within the city centre if you prefer (in which case you would need to catch the cruise shuttle to return to your ship) to take with you lasting fond memories of your visit to Wellington.
