The first stop along your tour will be the famous "Beehive," which is home to the executive wing of the New Zealand Parliament Buildings. This one of the most recognizable buildings in the country and is registered with the New Zealand Historic Places Trust. After a brief stop at the uniquely constructed St. Paul's Cathedral, you will make your way to the Wellington Cable Car. This iconic activity provides round trip transportation from the center of the city up to the Wellington Botanic Garden. Views from the gardens and your next stop at Mount Victoria will provide the perfect picture of how Wellington has settled in at the bottom of the north island.
A visit to Peter Jackson's Weta Cave will give you some insight into the studio that created the world famous Lord of the Rings series. Pose next to original LOTR props and memorabilia! From here, you will journey past picturesque Lyall Bay and Island Bay before finally stopping at the Kopahou Visitor Center, which, on a clear day, provides stunning views of Wellington's coast. A final stop will be made at the Te Papa Museum (Museum of New Zealand).
