Auckland City Getaway (IPA)

4 Day Package from Auckland to Auckland

Where in the world can you be one of the first to welcome a new day? Why, New Zealand, of course! On this 4-day stay in Auckland, we have arranged hotel accommodations, daily breakfast, and sightseeing for you. We also provide you with a Monograms Local Host®, a “kiwi” who is available to help you see the beauty and experience the splendor of their native country.

Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Auckland. After a long flight, we can help you get from the airport to your chosen hotel seamlessly. Your Local Host will welcome you with suggestions and a set of materials to help you get settled. The next morning, after an included breakfast, enjoy a guided tour where you will visit Queen Street, see the city’s oldest park, Auckland Domain, and take a scenic cruise around the harbor. The afternoon and following day are at your leisure to explore Auckland. Take a trip to the top of the Sky Tower to see the most beautiful views of the city, visit Chancery and High Streets for world-class shopping, or choose from a selection of optional excursions, including taking the ferry to Waiheke Island to explore beaches, olive groves, and vineyards. You can even participate as a crew member on an America’s Cup yacht! Should you need suggestions about what to see or do, your Local Host will be happy to provide them for you.
