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.

Small tour turned out to to a personal tour, just me and my wife. Grant, our driver, was very knowledgeable of the area and it’s history. We got outside the city and had tea and pastry at a seaside cafe. We saw “Wellewood” and the film making area of town and some wonderful views of the harbor. We went downtown and rode the sky lift and Grant dropped up off to do some shopping before catching the shuttle back to the ship. Really packed a lot of sightseeing into half a day. Not very strenuous physically for those who have some trouble getting around but want to see a lot of the city.
