Best of New Zealand with Cook Islands & Sydney

Experience the best of the Cook Islands, New Zealand, and Sydney on this unforgettable trip filled with dramatic scenery, cultural exchanges, and top attractions.

Start your vacation in the tropical Cook Islands. An included sightseeing tour features the island’s rich culture, legends, and history. You’ll also have plenty of time at leisure to swim, snorkel, or just relax on the beach.

Fly to Auckland and enjoy a city sightseeing tour, then spend time in the picturesque Bay of Islands region to learn more about the country’s history and enjoy a scenic cruise to the iconic “Hole in the Rock.” In Rotorua, enjoy dinner with a local family, visit Te Puia, and enjoy a traditional Hangi dinner and Maori performance. We continue south through New Zealand’s lush green North Island to Wellington, New Zealand’s capital city, where you’ll be treated to a city sightseeing tour.

A scenic inter-island ferry brings us to New Zealand’s South Island. Continue to Christchurch to board one of the world’s most scenic trains and travel across the Southern Alps. Two nights at Franz Josef won’t be enough as you admire the incredible views and have a chance to participate in a Glacier Valley Walk. Our journey ends in Queenstown, the Adventure Capital of the World, where a day trip to unforgettable Doubtful Sound is included.

Continue to the vibrant city of Sydney for a 3-night stay. Your time here includes a city sightseeing tour featuring the famous Opera House, Harbour Bridge, and the beautiful Botanic Gardens. There is plenty of free time to explore this exciting city on your own.

From the tropical oasis of the Cook Islands to rugged Doubtful Sound and cosmopolitan Sydney, you are sure to return home with lots of photos and unforgettable memories to share with friends and family!
