Itinerary and Meals
God’s Own Country…it might sound conceited, but this is how New Zealanders—or “kiwis”—refer to their country. Why? Maybe because it offers stunning beauty. Maybe because it’s one of the first countries in the world to see the sunrise. Maybe because bungee jumping first began there. Don’t worry—we won’t make you go bungee jumping, unless you choose to do that on your own! Instead, we’ll show you the amazing beauty and fun cities. On this 13-day vacation, we've arranged your hotel accommodations, daily breakfast (plus three lunches and one dinner), sightseeing, land transportation, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the airports for all intra-vacation flights. A one-of-a-kind special feature is the Monograms Local Host®, someone who is there for you to ensure your vacation runs smoothly and you get the most out of your trip. We've arranged for you to have a Local Host in Auckland, Christchurch, and Queenstown.Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Auckland, as we can help after the long flight by getting you from the airport to your selected hotel. Your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome and a set of materials to help you get settled and familiar with the city. The next day, we've arranged guided sightseeing with a local expert, including a cruise on Waitemata Harbour for spectacular views of Auckland. From Auckland, we've arranged your transportation to Waitomo, where you’ll take a boat trip to the famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves, and to Matamata, where you’ll visit the Hobbiton movie set from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films. In Wellington, capital of New Zealand, you'll enjoy a guided sightseeing tour that reveals the local, insider stories and takes in the must-see sights. Then, you're off to Christchurch on New Zealand's South Island. Your Local Host will be waiting for you in Christchurch with materials to help you become acquainted with the area. We’ll take you on an excursion to Akaroa for a cruise to see native wildlife.From Christchurch, we've arranged your transportation to Mount Cook National Park, where you'll have time to explore this alpine wonderland set in the Southern Alps. Perhaps explore New Zealand’s largest glacier or be dazzled by the Southern Hemisphere’s stars in the night sky. Continue on to Queenstown, the "Adventure Capital of the World." Here, we’ll take you on what will undoubtedly be a highlight of your trip: a cruise on Milford Sound in Fiordland National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, boasting some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world. Sometimes called the “Sound of Silence,” you’ll be awed by its abundant flora and fauna, as well as its raw beauty. And did we mention that in Rotorua we've included visits to Rainbow Springs, where you’ll see the native kiwis (birds—not New Zealanders), and Te Puia, home to 500 geothermal wonders. With Monograms, we handle all the details and you save valuable time and avoid stress by not having to create this dream vacation on your own. So, what are you waiting for? New Zealand awaits. All you need to do is pack your bags and go!
