Day by Day Tour Itinerary
Welcome to Auckland! Pass through customs, collect any baggage and be met by one of our friendly representatives, ready to whisk you away to your city accommodation. After checking in and getting yourself settled, turn your roving eye outside and enjoy a free afternoon in the City of Sails. Auckland is New Zealand’s largest city, with plenty of sights, shopping and street appeal for even the pickiest of travellers.
Take the 35 minute ferry ride across to Waiheke Island.Waiheke is a haven of beautiful vineyards, olive groves and beaches. If you’re a walker, explore the island’s trails which meander along cliff tops, down to the beaches and into cool enclaves of native forest. At the eastern end of the island the Stony Batter walkway leads you to a system of World War II gun emplacements and underground tunnels. Spend the day exploring.
This evening you can enjoy a 4 course dinner at your boutique hotel, The Boatshed. Enjoy a two night stay at The Boatshed, sitting just above the sun-drenched bay and white sandy beach of Oneroa. Relax and unwind, walk on the beach, read a book in the sun – be pampered.
Private dining at the Boatshed is a highlight – with excellent cuisine, fine New Zealand wines in a relaxed al fresco style. It could be joining other house guests in the dining room for a memorable Mediterranean feast, a private seafood platter for two on the balcony or some old fashioned comfort food in front of the fire. Enjoy breakfast whenever it suits and wherever the mood takes you – in your suite or alfresco.
Today you will go on a full day wine tour of Waiheke. A day of jaw-dropping vistas, colourful vineyards and more importantly wine, awaits! You’ll visit 3 top wineries, taste at least 14 seriously good wines plus olive and avocado oils (excludes lunch). Learn about Maori and European history, the wine-making process as well as hearing the inspiring stories about this colourful island.
Back at the Boatshed we’ve included a massage – drift into deep relaxation while your therapist works magic on your back, muscles and limbs.
Sadly your holiday is at an end and you will return to Auckland by ferry today.
FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
You won’t pay more by booking your short break holiday with Relaxing Journeys. We have access to discounted industry rates and special deals, only available to those in the travel trade. So the amount we make on each short break, is the difference between these rates and retail rates that you would pay if you booked it all yourself. Of course, you also get peace of mind that all is organised professionally and you get our fantastic service thrown in! There will be occasions where a property may release a ‘walk in’ deal that may better our quote, however our prices are the best available at the time of booking.
Your dedicated tour consultant will email you through a quote. If it looks good, then full payment is required to confirm the booking (within 45 days) or a deposit of $100 per person is required outside this period. This must be paid by credit card (Visa or Mastercard only). We do not charge credit card fees on our short break packages. If the properties listed in the holiday package are unavailable at this time, we will provide you with alternatives until you are happy.
We welcome bookings from anywhere in the world. You can see how much each package is using our currency converter on this page. Only the New Zealand Dollar (NZ$) prices on this site are accurate. Prices in other currencies have been converted for your convenience, and are there to help you to compare to your own currency. All of our New Zealand tours are charged in New Zealand Dollars. Your credit card company will convert the amount paid from your currency into NZD automatically for you.
Some short break packages do not include (or may not require) a hire car, or internal flights. Relaxing Journeys can organise these extras for you and include them in your quote if you wish – or you can just book the short break ‘as is’, and organise everything else yourself. These extras can be requested after choosing your date and clicking ‘Confirm Availability’ on the right of this page.
The cost of getting to & from the airport to your accommodation is generally not included, although on some occasions it is, in which case we have specifcally mentioned it in the itinerary. There are always plenty of taxis or shuttles waiting at the airport. You also have the option in most cases to catch a bus into the city centres.
Once your deposit has been paid and you have received your deposit confirmation, we will organise your short break and when completed (normally within 48 hours) we will email you confirmation. When you pay your balance (45 days before the start date) we will email you a ‘Short Break Voucher’ shortly after along with your arrival information and everything else you need. Print this off and take it with you to NZ.

Relaxing Journeys would have already booked and confirmed all the components of your holiday and we will have to cancel everything and adhere to each suppliers cancellation policy.
