Description

Discover two of the best things to do in North Island New Zealand with this two day combo ticket; on day one you'll spend the morning exploring a few of the best Auckland attractions before leaving the city behind on day two and heading into a subtropical wonderland for your Bay of Islands cruise. Day 1: Auckland City Sights Tour Climb aboard your luxury sightseeing coach and venture out for the morning to discover the best places to see in Auckland. Travel along Karangahape Road, through the trendy Ponsonby neighbourhood to Auckland Harbour Bridge where your expert driver will show you the best places to photograph the Auckland city skyline. Soak up views across the Hauraki Gulf before passing through the Viaduct Harbour and bustling Queen Street. Your adventure continues as your knowledgeable guide leads you through the city's oldest park which sits atop an ancient volcano - Auckland Domain - and on to Parnell village where you can take a stroll, enjoy a coffee (own expense) and visit fashionable boutiques. Then, allow your guide to show you the best views of the city as you head out along the scenic Auckland Waterfront on Tamaki Drive to the Michael Joseph Savage Memorial Park in Mission Bay. The park offers panoramic views over Whenua Rangatira, Auckland and Waitemata Harbour. The perfect way to end your deluxe Auckland sightseeing tour! Day 2: Bay of Islands Dolphin Cruise Departing Auckland, head north on your deluxe, air-conditioned coach while enjoying informative and lively commentary from your driver as the city gives way to rolling hills and subtropical bush. Upon arrival in Paihia, board your spacious catamaran for an unforgettable Bay of Islands cruise. Equipped with open-air viewing decks and a knowledgeable crew, you'll have everything you need to learn about the local geography and history while keeping your eyes peeled for dolphins and whales which frequent the area. Cruise past rugged rocky outcrops crowned by open grassland and use high-powered binoculars to scope out quiet coves on secluded islands en route to the remote Cape Brett Peninsula and the famed Hole in the Rock on Motukokako Island. Weather permitting, your captain will then navigate you carefully through the tight space before gliding back to Paihia, where your deluxe coach will be ready for you to board for the return trip to Auckland. This is a combination ticket for the half-day Auckland city highlights tour and Bay of Islands dolphin cruise. Accommodation not
