Day 1
Arrive Wellington

‘Haere Mai’ Welcome to New Zealand. On arrival, a Kirra Tours representative will greet you at the airport and transfer you to your downtown city hotel. The rest of today is free to explore the nation’s capital. Situated right on the Wellington waterfront, a visit to the Te Papa Museum of New Zealand is highly recommended. This vibrant city also has a superb café culture and plenty of fantastic bistros and restaurants offering indoor and al fresco dining.

Stay: Ibis Wellington Hotel

Day 2
Wellington - Art Deco Napier

Travelling north into the rural heartland of the Wairarapa region takes us through farmland that gives way to the vast orchards and plentiful vineyards of Hawke’s Bay. On arrival in Napier this afternoon, enjoy a walking tour with a local guide who will bring the city’s fascinating Art Deco architecture and history to life.

Stay: Scenic Hotel Te Pania (B, D)

Day 3
Napier - Taupo - Rotorua

Stop to view the mighty Huka Falls as we drive through the popular lakeside resort town of Taupo, and travel past massive pine forests to reach Rotorua, centre of Maori culture and geothermal activity. This evening, you’ll be treated to a traditionally prepared Maori hangi (feast) followed by an enthralling cultural performance of Maori songs, chants and dance, including the stirring haka.

Stay: Novotel Rotorua Lakeside (2 nights) (B, D)

Day 4
Rotorua Sightseeing

Start your day with a walk through the Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland, famous for its geysers, boiling mud pools and steaming craters. Next, a scenic jet boat ride will take you along the mighty Waikato River to a magnificent thermal reserve featuring silica terraces. Enjoy the rest of the afternoon to explore Rotorua further on your own. Your Coach Captain can assist with any optional activities you would like to do. For dinner tonight we highly recommend checking out Eat Streat, a collection of top-notch restaurants and bars with an all-weather al fresco dining area. (B)

Day 5
Rotorua - Pauanui

We travel north through the Bay of Plenty region, stopping by the popular beach town of Mt Maunganui on our way to the Coromandel Peninsula. The Coromandel Peninsula is a beautiful, rugged area fringed with dozens of excellent beaches and is a place where many kiwis choose to escape the hustle and hype of city life. Our overnight stay is in Pauanui, a favourite New Zealand holiday resort nestled in the native bush and just a stone’s throw from a pristine white sand beach.

Stay: Grand Mercure Puka Park Lodge (B, D)

Day 6
Pauanui - Auckland

After a leisurely breakfast, we travel to Auckland, the ‘City of Sails’ and enjoy a city tour on arrival. You have ample time to explore the downtown area on your own this afternoon, and your Coach Captain can recommend activity options. This evening, join your friends for a farewell dinner and drinks and relive the highlights and experiences of the last two weeks.

Stay: Rydges Hotel Auckland (B, D)

Day 7
Depart Auckland

Sadly, your holiday ends after breakfast this morning. Here we bid you farewell and hope you leave with many happy memories of your stay. You will be transferred to Auckland Airport to connect with your onward flight. (B)
