Day by Day Tour Itinerary
Welcome to Auckland! Once you’ve moved through customs and collected your baggage, please make your way to your hotel the Scenic Hotel Auckland. You’ve landed on the doorstep of New Zealand’s largest city, an idyllic setting overlooking the forested Waitakere Ranges, the sheltered Manukau Harbour and the island-studded Hauraki Gulf to the north. No wonder over a million people choose to live here!
Beautiful beaches and dreamy offshore islands are just half an hour from the city. In fact, the sea is so much a part of the place that an unusually high number of people own their own boats, giving the city its moniker of the ‘City of Sails’.
Your half day sightseeing tour begins with a journey across the Auckland Harbour Bridge for stunning views back to the city. Visit Viaduct Harbour and Auckland’s famous Queen Street before making your way to Auckland Domain, the city’s oldest and largest park situated on a 62,000 year old volcano.
Continue on to the trendy boutique village of Parnell featuring many antique, craft and specialty shops before stunningly scenic waterfront rout of Tamaki Drive. The tour ends with a visit to the fascinating underground attraction of Kelly Tarlton’s Antarctic Encounter & Underwater World.
Make your way to the Downtown Auckland Ferry Terminal and board your ferry for a 35 minute cruise to Waiheke Island. On arrival you can pick-up a rental car, taxi or a tour and explore this beautiful jewel in the Hauraki Gulf.
Waiting for you is an array of stunning beaches and native forest reserves which harmonise delightfully with cafes, vineyards, olive groves, arts and crafts studios.
Return to the city at your leisure.
Free time for some last minute sightseeing or shopping before departing Auckland for your next destination.
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.
