Tick off the top attractions of the Windy City on this private full-day tour of Wellington. Experience the myriad delights of New Zealand’s capital as you take in the views from Mt Victoria, spot seals at Red Rocks, then go behind-the-scenes with a 45-minute tour of the Weta Cave, where the special effects for Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit were created. After a scrumptious lunch at the Chocolate Fish Café (included), ride the cable car over Wellington and visit landmarks like the Botanical Gardens, the Parliament Buildings and the Beehive.
What to Expect
You will be picked up from your choice location at 9:30am. We then head for the hills to take in the stunning views of the city and coast from Mt Victoria.
Relax as we drive around Oriental bay to the Weta Cave – Peter Jackson's film empire. After a 45 minute tour of the Weta Workshop you will be taken to enjoy a delicious lunch at the Chocolate Fish Café.
After your lunch, we will follow the rugged Southern coast line to the quaint Italian fishing settlement at Island Bay before moving along to visit the seal colony at Red Rocks.
After all this, it’s back to the city to ride the Cable Car, walk through the Botanical gardens and have afternoon tea at the Lady Norwood Rose gardens. We end the day with a visit to Parliament Buildings, the Beehive and Old St Paul's church.
After all the excitement is over, you will be returned to your location of choice at 4:30pm.

Awesome tour of Wellington

This tour provides you with the opportunity to see parts of Wellington outside the city centre without having to rent a car. Excellent trip with lots of attractions and wonderful sights. A wonderful local company.

Yes, it was for us. Double check with your tour company but I'm sure that can be arranged.
