Picton Walking Tour

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from £56.05 GBP / Adult
Discover the rugged South Island beauty and remarkable history of Picton as you follow a local guide on a narrated stroll through town. There's no finer way to connect with this seaside charmer than by exploring on foot. Your guide will delve into the deep Maori roots of this territory, once called Waitohi, and discuss European colonialism, which would forever change the landscape. Wind along the picturesque waterfront dotted with cafes, restaurants and galleries, while, in the harbor, hard-working fishing boats bob gently beside luxurious day cruisers and gleaming yachts. Pass over the “coathanger bridge” for sensational panoramas of the Marlborough Sounds, and hear stories chronicling bygone eras, including Picton's rough-and-tumble days as a whaling center. Enjoy an up-close and personal discovery of this New Zealand treasure as you amble along at a nice and comfortable pace.
  • Learn about Picton's rich Maori heritage and the appreciation New Zealand's native people have for the environment.
  • Follow along the marina to capture photos of the weathered fishing vessels and plush pleasure crafts.
  • Listen as your Kiwi guide regales you with tales of Picton's history, including the town's whaling days.
