Your Itinerary

Day 1 – Christchurch

Depart from London Heathrow or your closest regional airport and take the ultimate voyage to the other side of the world. On arrival into the heritage city of Christchurch you will be transferred to your luxury boutique hotel for a relaxed two night stay in preparation for the small group adventure ahead.

Day 3 - Ultimate Explorer Small Group Tour

Gain a unique perspective of New Zealand’s wonders told by a local and knowledgeable guide in a small group setting of no more than 20 other travellers. The 16 day Ultimate Explorer covers both the North and South Island and includes many memorable and immersive experiences. Travel in a luxury state of the art coach and stay in some of New Zealand’s finest hotels – see the full Ultimate Explorer itinerary for details.

Day 19 - Rarotonga

It is time to leave the small group tour and travel to the small island of Rarotonga set within the collection of the Cook Islands in the glistening turquoise waters of the South Pacific. Just four hours from Auckland this island paradise is the perfect place to relax and unwind. The welcome will be as warm as the weather and you can choose to be as active or as relaxed as you like during your 5 night stay.

Day 24 - Los Angeles

It’s a journey of contrast as you leave the relaxed sandy shores of the Cook Islands and replace them with the bright lights of America’s cultural city of Los Angeles. A 3 night stay here will allow you to soak up the star-studded atmosphere of Hollywood and Beverley Hills, or continue the beach theme and head to Venice or Santa Monica Beach.

Day 28: Farewell from Los Angeles

It is time to board the onward flight and travel across America and the Atlantic to return home.
