All the essentials of Wellington with a private guide
A half-day Private Tour introducing you to my beautiful home. We will take in the iconic Beehive, the Cable Car and Botanical Gardens, Mt Victoria with it's 360deg views of Wellington city and harbour. The Tour will finish at Te Papa Museum (leaving you free to spend your time there or the rest of your afternoon wandering round Wellington).
If you're here on a Cruise, because this is a 4. 5 hour Tour, I can only do it once a day. But the start time is negotiable. Please confirm your starting time when you book.
I will meet you at your ship at 9:00am and from there we will go firstly to NZ's iconic Government Buildings - the Beehive - followed by a visit to Old St Paul's, a stunning wooden church.
After visiting the Botanical Gardens, we will drive to Mt Victoria with it's 360deg views of Wellington's stunning harbour. If you are interested we can also visit a popular Lord of the Rings location. If this is fully a driving Tour, this will include morning tea at the Chocolate Fish cafe. We will finish with a visit to the Cable Car.
At the end of the Tour I can drop you off at either your ship or at Te Papa Museum. (If you wish to walk around Te Papa, give yourself about an hour. They also do guided tours for $15pp. )

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a very enjoyable tour with Robbie. We particularly liked the filming location of The Lord of The Rings, and his insight on being an extra in the films. Being able to bypass the long line of tourists waiting for the cable car was a definite plus also. If you get a chance to go to the LOTR gift shop, you should go, even if only to get photos of yourself with the life-size characters.
