Wellington Walking City and Gourmet Shore Excursion

This tour will give you an in-depth look and taste of Wellington city, including visiting artisan producer businesses, and hearing all about the city's history, architecture, street art, culture and more. You will then conclude with a light two-course wine or craft beer-matched lunch at a top Wellington eatery with more time to chat to your local knowledgeable guide about what it's like living here.
We commence at 9.30am from the Wellington City iSite, and walk our way around many quarters of the city. There is approximately 90 minutes of walking broken up by delicious eats and drinks! We will finish around 2.30pm and ensure you're comfortable with navigation around the city for your remaining time with ideas on what is great to see while you're here, or we'll escort you back to the departure point right beside the ship shuttle.
