Join us for a two hour scenic tour of Wellington. Stops include Mt Victoria and Old St Pauls (ask about stops at Weta or the Rose Gardens). Finish back in the city centre at Te Papa Museum, the Cable Car, the Visitor Information Centre or your hotel. Your choice!


The tour starts with a drive through the restaurant and entertainment district of Courteney Pl before heading up to Mt Victoria for famous views over the city and out towards the Pacific ocean. Then it’s down Mt Victoria ridgeline and out towards the surfing beach at Lyall Bay before swinging round the wild south coast. We drop into Miramar, home of Wellington’s film industry, before heading back into the city round the bays – most famously Oriental Bay which gets packed with bathers on hot summer days.
Heading up into the western hills we climb for more spectacular views from the slopes of Ahumairangi and then drop down to the Botanic Garden and Wellington’s oldest suburb of Thorndon for a stop at Old St Pauls – an unusual and beautiful example of a wooden neogothic church. Swinging past Parliament and the Beehive we head back into the CBD where we can drop you off at Te Papa museum, the Cable Car or anywhere else you choose in the city centre.
