This city has SO much to experience! Take the ferry over to Waiheke Island for stunning views of the city from the ferry.
A great place to spend the day – wineries, art galleries, quiet beaches or sail on one of the America’s cup yachts

Wai-O-Tapo (North Island)


Welcome to the thermal wonderland of NZ! Located close to the town of Rotorua, here you will experience an easy walk through this volcanic area full of geothermal activity.
The colour of the pools are so vibrant and striking, you almost don’t believe they are real.

Milford Sound (South Island)

The drive alone into Milford Sound will have your jaw dropping and your camera constantly clicking. Upon arrival, the Fjords will take your breath away.
We HIGHLY recommend taking a boating day trip, or kayak tour of the area.


Dolphins in Kaikoura
A day spent here is a real highlight! The tours offered to swim with the wild dolphins are absolutely a must do for a wonderful opportunity to see dolphins swimming in their pods. You are encouraged to sing in the water as dolphins are attracted to sound and will come to investigate, but No touching allowed as they are wild animals. One of our group sales agents spent the best 2 hours singing in the ocean with multiple dolphins circling, diving under, and singing back to her – what an experience!
