Condé Nast Editor Plans Your 12-Day Tour

New Zealand – “where the island of Waiheke offers great food and even better wine”, features in the latest issue of Condé Nast Traveler as a 12-day “Editor’s Itinerary”.

The tour covers both islands, with visits to New Zealand’s “many natural wonders” including Cape Reinga, Doubtless Bay, Milford Sound and Skippers Canyon.

“You’ll see them all up close on off-road drives, jet-boat trips, and scenic flights – and still have time to spend an afternoon at Marlborough’s award-winning wineries.

And further north out of Auckland: “[A] private guide will meet you at your accommodation for an exclusive ‘under the skin’ appreciation of the magic of Waiheke. Visit artists in their private studios, enjoy a private wine tasting in one of the island’s boutique vineyards – including meeting with the winemaker – delight in the sculptures at the privately owned Connells Bay Sculpture Park, and have lunch at one of the island’s vineyard restaurants as well as enjoying a swim at one of the island’s beaches [on] our private-access excursions.”
