What You Can Expect
Depart Auckland on an air-conditioned coach via the Auckland Harbour Bridge, heading north along the Hibiscus Coast to the beautiful Bay of Islands. Arriving in the town of Paihia, also known as the jewel of the Bay of Islands, you'll visit the historic Waitangi Treaty Grounds. It was here that the 1840 treaty was signed between the Maori and the British Crown. Spend the rest of your day at your own leisure.
Day 2: Paihia – Cape Reinga – Paihia (L)
Day 3: Paihia – Bay of Islands cruise – Russell – Auckland
We only had 4 days and this tour was perfect. We saw and covered so much that we could not have if we did on our on in that time. The drivers, tour guides were amazing, organised and professional, but most of all fun! Accommodation was clean and the staff were lovely. I can't say enough good things about my three day tour in the beautiful Bay of Islands. I would highly recommend this tour if you don't have a lot of time, but want to make the most of the time you have.
This was an excellent trip, well organized, full of surprises and real value for money. The Scenic Hotel was excellent as were the breakfasts. The drive along the sands is a keeper as is the tour of Russell.
Overall, most enjoyable and I would defiantly recommend it to friends.
The whole tour was amazing and superb value for money. Everyone involved was so helpful and enthusiastic and there was such a wide range of different activities involved. The accommodation in the Bay of Islands was superb and there was just the right amount of downtime. We thought that if anything you undersold it on the website.
Shuttle pick up from Auckland hotel and return was very efficient and did not involve coach going to every hotel in city. Hotel in Bay of Islands was good, nice pool, friendly staff and easy walk to restaurants and ferries. Delivery and collection of luggage to hotel worked extremely well.
Tours were all excellent.Loved the trip to Cape Reinga and 90 mile beach. Driver/guide was excellent and spent time showing party how to board down the dunes safely. Boat trip to Hole in the Rock and Russell Town were very enjoyable and we loved seeing so many Dolphins.
Excellent value and well worth doing. Many thanks.
I recently returned from a three day trip to the Bay of Islands organized by Viator travel.
I can’t praise the company highly enough. Every detail was covered, all the pick-ups were efficient and on time and the individual trips were wonderful.
The various guides were so well informed and helpful and the accommodation was more than adequate. A short but memorable trip to an utterly stunning part of the world. Highly recommended. Rose
A very informative and well organised tour that fitted in what we wanted to do. All elements of the tour were excellent value for money and I would highly recommend this tour as a way to see all of the northern part of North Island.
This tour was amazing!
A fun and informative trip! So many great sights all packed into one holiday!
Fabulous time in the Bay of Islands!! Worth doing!!
