Discover Wellington

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 332

Perched on the edge of a beautiful harbour, Wellington is a stunning city. Vibrant and cultured, it combines the sophistication of a big city with the quirkiness of a charming village.


As New Zealand’s capital city, Wellington is a major political and cultural centre. You’ll spend an evening at leisure to explore, before a city tour takes you to the Parliament Buildings, Old Saint Paul’s Cathedral, and sweeping views atop Mt.Victoria. An afternoon trip also takes you to visit the fur seals of Sinclair Head and the Leaning Lighthouse.

Wellington City Sights and Coastline Tour

See Wellington through the eyes of a local on this tour. Experience the best attractions and must see landmarks of this vibrant city and get off the tourist trail. Gain a 360 degree view of the city from Mount Victoria, experience the rugged south coast seas and explore interesting quaint villages throughout the city. Take a ride on the famous cable car (optional at own cost) but most of all sit back and enjoy Wellington at its finest!

Duration2 Hours

Seal Coast Safari Silver

This half-day safari offers a unique view of the rugged beauty of Seal Coast, situated on the South Coast of Wellington, you'll also traverse a large coastal ranch or station, where many wild goats and horses may be seen, as well as deer, ostriches, and beef cattle, as you'll listen to tales of the early farmers' exploits. You have a mini tour of Wellington before exploring Wellington's fault-line on the way to the Seal coast. Enjoy fabulous views of the city spread out below you, with equally great views of the South Island. The impressive coastline and the seals are, of course, the main ticket of this safari, and again, stories abound as you drive right on the beach around to Tongue Point, which is home both to the awesome New Zealand Fur Seal and the famous Leaning Lighthouse. Tea or coffee with a fine muffin is enjoyed with the seals, before undertaking the return journey back to Wellington.
