Enjoy a half day tour of stunning Wellington with Wellington Rover Tours. The 3.5hr Explorer Tour starts at the Wellington i-site of City Accommodation.
First up? A nice ciy drive through Courtenay Place, Wellington's main entertainment hub! After this it's time to continue the drive along spectacular Oriental Bay and all the way up to the amazing hilltop loukout point of Mount Victoria. At this stunning location, you'll get to spend 15 minutes enjoying the breathtaking views over the city, while learning all about Wellington and how it has become New Zealand's best city (we might be a bit biased here at Wellington Rover Tours).
Next on the list is driving along the city greenbelt ànd for the lovers of film, exploring an awesome Lord of the Rings film location! Of course we can't skip the beautiful coastline... This tour will take you around the Mirimar Peninsular and Karaka Bays and will follow the magnificent South Coast! Along the way, we'll pass by awesome surf beaches like Houghton Bay and Lyall Bay!
There's an optional stop here at the coast, for true beach lovers to explore all the goodness Wellington's coast has to offer! Next up, Rover Tours will take you back to the city via Newtown... We'll be heading around the fourth oldest cricket ground ànd the largest roundabout in the southern hemisphere: Basin Reserve. The journey will also take you past the National War Memorial, through eccentric Cuba Street and on to the bottom of the famous Wellington Cable Car. Fun fact: a ride on the cable car is in fact included in your awesome tour with us!
At the top of the cable car, you'll be picked up again, after enjoying the stunning views of course. Then it's time to head past some historic San Franciscan villas, Old St Pauls Cathedral and New Zealand's Parliamant grounds, to finish your amazing half day tour off!
