NEW ZEALAND – NORTH and SOUTH ISLAND – 20 Days

This is unashamedly a take-off of the big bus tours but at Bucket List Tours NZ we have put our own spin on it. All tours are included in the price, there are no hidden extras and we have reduced the long drives – which means added value and a lot more fun for you. We specialise in small groups, a minimum of 4 persons and a maximum of 10.

You will be met in Auckland where you will be driven to the beautiful Bay of Islands. Here you will visit Waitangi House where on the 6th February 1840 The Treaty of Waitangi was signed between the Maori and the British Crown. You will take a boat cruise to the Hole in The Rock before leaving Paihia to drive to Rotorua for a fabulous Maori Cultural Show and traditional Hangi.

Rotorua is a geo-thermal area and a “must’ here is Wai-O-Tapu – or Sacred Waters – where a geyser erupts every day. No visit to the North Island is complete unless you see New Zealand’s largest natural lake, Lake Taupo, the source of the mighty Waikato River and Huka Falls. Returning to Rotorua we fly to Christchurch to start your almost-circumnavigation of the South Island.
