Auckland is New Zealand's largest city and ranked as one of the most livable in the world. Sprawling over a narrow isthmus between the Waitemata Habour and Manukau Harbour many are surprised to see rainforest covering the surrounding hills.
All flights inbound and outbound to the United States flow through Auckland's airport. As a melting pot for the country, Auckland offers a range of great food options. Island day-trips are recommended in addition to visiting a few favorite spots in the vibrant city-center.
Laid out excellently to present a different challenge every day, this links course demands attention to the wind with every swing
We are near the end of our New Zealand trip. It has been terrific
and amazing. Each stop was unique. First at Tara Iti... now Cape Kidnappers. It is perfectly designed
and managed. Great staff and service.The golf course is beautiful and
the Kiwi hunt very special... Thank for your help in all the planning.

We had a spectacular time on our trip after leaving Port Douglas and all the arrangements that you made for us came off without a hitch. All flights and transportation that you arranged were on time and we were well taken care of at all the places we went to.
The Boatshed was incredible. We met Johnathan and had a small dinner with him on our second night. We were the only guests at the hotel and he and his staff just made us feel right at home. Jack and Jen, Johnathan’s staff, took us out to a couple of wineries and we had lunch together. When we got back Johnathan treated us to dinner prepared by his own self. Fantastic.
Next up was Napier/Hastings and the Craggy Range cottage. Excellent choice for us. We were close enough to Havelock North to be able to easily drive into the town and wander around. We went and played Cape Kidnapers as well. The course was wet so no carts were allowed out. Craggy Range winery was great to us and we had dinner at Terroire. Great staff and good eats to be sure. On to Queenstown.
What a wonderfully European feel Queenstown had. Small intimate streets and people all over the place. The Spire was perfect for us. Florence greeted us and was superlative in her suggestions and ideas for us to do. We did take a plane ride out to Milford Sound and the cruise. We went wine tasting and went to Amisfield for lunch where there was a spectacular sunset. It was so good that the staff came outside to take pictures. Simply wonderful. We took the gondola ride up the hill and enjoyed a glass of champagne while we took in the view. That was our last day and really enjoyable. We left the next day and flew back home.
Again, all the arrangements you made of us came off without a hitch. I even drove on the left side of the road without incident. It’s not so bad once you figure out the roundabouts. Thanks to you and your team for setting this up. Will highly recommend this service to our friends should they need to journey down under.
