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

Our tour begins with pick up in Wellington city. We then proceed up the Brooklyn Hill to a wind turbine, where guests can take in the great views of the city far below. From here, there is also stunning views across the Cook Strait and the South Island.

We then travel over the hills through private farmland towards Wellington's rugged south coast. On this private farmland you can encounter various animals including goats, Red Deer and ostriches! They can be shy though, so no guarantees!

Once on the coast, we drive along the beaches in our 4x4 Land Cruisers and stop at a colony of wild New Zealand Fur Seals. Enjoy either morning or afternoon tea whilst observing these cute and curious creatures in their natural habitat and learn of their history and behaviour from a safe distance.

Finally, we make our way back to the city before dropping you safely back in town.
