Wellington has a beautifully compact Downtown area and picturesque hilly surrounding suburbs.

We then travel the stunning, rugged coastline, now a marine reserve, stopping along the way to taste some famous Wellington coffee.
We then return to the central city for a drive through the quirky Cuba Street district and along Lambton Quay, the main shopping street, for a chance to ride the famous Wellington Cable Car. We finish the tour with stops at Parliament and Old St Paul’s Cathedral. Your guide can then drop you back to your hotel, or reccommend a drop-off point for more explorations of our City.
