Wellington Highlights tour

Windy Wellington as the locals know it!
Capital of New Zealand and one of its first major settlements, Wellington is now a bustling commercial centre being the seat of the Government and many other institutions. Its dramatic location, clinging to steep hillsides along the harbour edge, gives it a unique character, often referred to as the Windy City. The Cruise Ships berth a short distance from the city.
 
Tour Outline:
Welcome to the 'Coolest Little Capital in the World' - Wellington. Take a wonderful 6 hour tour of this compact and very scenic part of the world. Hopefully you don't find out why it's also known as the Windy City!

Experience the best parts of the city with your friendly local guide. You will delight in exploring the hills, bays and beaches that the big coaches can't always get to.

Highlights include:

- See breathtaking Old St Pauls Cathedral, crafted from fine New Zealand timber in the 1860's.
