Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Auckland. Receive a true New Zealand welcome today and be collected straight from the airport by a local and into the highlights of Auckland, but at a pace that best suits you. You may wish to take to the harbour and explore by foot, stretching your legs and perhaps experiencing some of the city's great cafe culture; or you may decide to get some mountain air and get to see a different side of Auckland away from its hustle and bustle. Your private guide will be with you to make the best suggestions and to help you see and understand the city through the eyes of a local, taking you to your city centre hotel by which time it will be ready for immediate check-in.

As you would have seen the previous day, Auckland is a multi-faceted city and lying a short ferry ride away from its central harbour is the attractive Waiheke Island, home to artists, wine growers and those that enjoy a different pace of life.
