    • I'm in New Zealand for 3 nights! Help me plan!

      New Zealand May 30, 2015 at 8:16 AM

      Hi Everyone,

      As a part of my honey-moon trek, I will be spending 3 nights in Auckland, New Zealand. Here is what my tour operator planned so far, I figured to get your expert opinions on the current itinerary, and what to add/remove.

      Day 1: Pride of Auckland Dinner Cruise (WestHaven Marina) - 6 PM - 8:30 PM
      Day 2: Hobbiton Express Tour - 7 AM - 3 PM
      Day 3: Waitomo & Rotoura Experience - 7:30 AM - 8:10 PM

      To be honest, My fiance is not very into Lord of the Rings, she is doing the hobbiton tour because I think its something that everyone has to see. I am looking for the breathtaking views that newzealand is known for but I don't think im getting it with the current tours...

      How can I get from boat dock to Mount Maunganui?

      by lbeck Online Now Feb 11, 2008 at 12:41 PM

      Sorry to double-post. I posted this on the NZ site before I found that there is a site for Mount Maunganui.

      My wife and I will be on a Princess Cruise to NZ, along with 4 other couples. We have a friend who spent her teen years in Tauranga, NZ and she said that we shouldn't miss Mount Maunganui. We were looking for a short (1-3 mile) hike and she thinks that is doable. I Googled Mount Maunganui and I think she is talking about the mountain in the Manao (sp?) reserve.

      Princess doesn't have an excursion there, but we'll be a full say in Tauranga and I'm thinking of booking a trip there. Do any of you know anything about where the boat will dock and what kind of local transportation is available (tour buses etc.) that could take us from the ship to the Manao (sp?) reserve?
