Walking tours are often the best way of getting to know a city. Put your feet on the ground and join the local knowledgeable guides of Walk Wellington who will take you deep into the nooks and crannies of this compact but exciting capital city. Rather than gleaning your information from a stuffy guidebook, experience Wellington up close, learning in an interpretive way from your informative guides all about the city's past, present and its people.

All walking tour options depart from the i-Site in Civic Square.
