Best Of Wellington

Experience the best of Wellington at Te Papa museum followed by a trip to Mount Victoria and to downtown Wellington! Discover Te Papa’s taonga Maori (cultural treasures) and hear the stories of how these taonga are a living part of Maori history and culture. The tour includes a mihimihi (greeting) and a waiata (song) on the Marae. Visit a living, growing exhibition that brings New Zealand’s great outdoors into the city, where the Host explains how early Maori gathered food, medicines, and materials for clothing from the forest. The tour concludes with a kaputi (hot drink) and traditionally inspired food. Then take in the city sights from Mount Victoria, undoubtedly the capital city’s favourite lookout. Popular with tourists for its spectacular 360 degree bird’s eye view of the city and surrounds. Travel to Wellington’s famous Beehive, Parliament building, for a photo stop before returning to your ship.
