What to expect

The Bay of Islands is the postcard star of New Zealand’s North Island, blessed with white sands, glittering turquoise waters, and almost 150 sub-tropical islands. This private 4-hour tour from Paihia checks off all the highlights, so you can learn about New Zealand’s colonial history at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds, marvel at natural wonders such as Haruru Falls and Wharepuke Falls.

Meet your private guide at your central Paihia hotel or on arrival at Waitangi tender pier (Paihia) and set out to explore the Bay of Islands. The exact itinerary for your Private Tour in Paihia and Kerikeri can be tailored to your personal preferences.

As you journey around the bay, stop to take photos of natural wonders such as the Haruru Falls and the Rainbow Falls; admire the Stone Store & Kemp House (Kerikeri Mission Station) in Kerikeri, two of the country’s oldest buildings; and take a peek at the historic wooden church of St James.

Take a stroll along the Kerikeri River to see the Wharepuke Falls, pause to soak up the views across the Bay.

After a morning or an afternoon exploring the Bay of Islands, your tour ends with drop-off back at your Paihia hotel or cruise
