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.

Itinerary

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. )

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I will meet you at your accommodation or cruise ship.

End location: I can either drop you off at Te Papa Museum (with directions on how to get back to your accommodation/ship), or I can drop you off at your accommodation/ship.

Duration: 4 hours 30 min.

This can either be a walking or driving Tour, so weather and traffic may affect itinerary and timing. There may be delays at the Cable Car.
