A Walk Through Wellington
Wellington is burgeoning city abuzz with action. Your guided adventure departs from the Wellington City and Sea Museum. From there, you'll explore a bevy of options for your viewing pleasure before concluding your tour at the Parliament Complex.
In 2011, Lonely Planet declared Wellington the
Coolest Little Capital in the World. Following this private adventure, you may reach the same conclusion.
The Wellington City and Sea Museum is the first location you'll visit. The Times, London voted it into the top 50 museums in the world and hopefully you'll agree. Located in lovely Queen's Wharf, it celebrates the city's maritime history and features 150 years of Maori and settler development.
There is Old St. Paul's Anglican Church. This wooden structure is one of the most formidable examples of 19-century Gothic Revival architecture in the world. In addition to the many cafes and restaurants in town, there is the Cable Car Museum near the Harbour and downtown to see.
You'll complete your guided tour in the Central Business District (CBD) with a visit to the conical shaped Parliament House building, and other facilities forming the 'Beehive' complex, like the National Symphony Orchestra of New Zealand, the Royal Ballet Company, and National Library.

Excellent tour. However, your directions are out dated. This caused us great confusion and anxiety because your instructions took us to the wrong place.

Our guide Matthew was very personable and he spoke loudly and clearly enough so that everyone in the group of 10 could hear him. He was a "helper" guide to the main person, but he was very good. The guides arrived late to the meeting point, about 4 minutes. So people were getting antsy. I thought we would see the Parliament buildings and some "famous" landmarks, but we went up Cuba street and he concentrated on street art and some of the buildings along there. So it was interesting because it didn't concentrate on the traditional "famous" bits!
Great information and really good tour. We had kind of raining day but it did not really matter. Nice walk and beautiful place.
We loved our walk thru Wellington. There were just two of us in our group so it was a private tour. The guide took us to all the major sites as well as off-the-beaten path. We absolutely enjoyed the day. Great job and we can highly recommend this!
