Arrive Auckland, New Zealand

Auckland, also known as the city of sails, is situated between two enormous harbors and dotted with 48 extinct volcanic cones. New Zealand’s largest city with a population of over 1.3 million people – is home to one third of New Zealanders. The city’s mix of urban sophistication and coastal setting has inspired a lifestyle that regularly ranks in the world’s top 10. Auckland is home to the Sky Tower which at 328m is the tallest structure in the southern hemisphere. The Sky Tower’s three observation levels offer 360-degree views of Auckland. The iconic harbor bridge, opened in 1959, provides other adventures. Visitors can climb over, under and jump from the spectacular bridge that dominates Auckland’s inner harbor. Enjoy a brief city tour while being transferred to the Amora Hotel Auckland, ideally positioned amongst a magnificent park in central Auckland. With its central location close to the main business district the hotel is also ideally located within strolling distance to the major shopping and entertainment areas. You will tour the Auckland War Memorial Museum, both a museum and a site of commemoration for New Zealanders lost at war. The Museum houses two halls of memory within which the names of all those killed in major conflicts of the 20th Century are recorded and remembered. The Cenotaph and consecrated ground in front of the Museum are a touchstone of remembrance every Anzac Day (25 April). The War Memorials and galleries are located on the top floor. Enjoy a Maori cultural performance. This evening your trip ends with a Farewell Dinner at the Orbit Revolving Restaurant – situated at the top of the Sky Tower, 190 meters off the ground. The dining room rotates once every hour, providing a truly unique experience and amazing 360-degree views of Auckland City. High flying architect Andrew Lister set his sights at a dizzying level with his up-to-the-minute Orbit restaurant design. Combining stylish décor, delicious à la carte menu and 360 degrees, Orbit stands out as Auckland’s top dining experience.
