Discover Bay of Islands by Private Van with Optional Guide
Bay of Islands, New Zealand
- Grab the big picture: Get into the sunny spirit of Paihia, hear stories about how this area was settled by missionaries in 1823, and gain insights into Maori culture. See buildings and missions that are the legacy of the early Europeans and admire the beauty that surely attracted these early settlers as you drive through lush countryside to Haruru Falls.
- Zoom in your passions: See the very site where this nation was born at Waitangi Treaty Grounds (NZ's most important document was signed here in 1840). Tour the museum and enjoy a high-energy cultural performance. Looking for adventure? GoBe knows where to go! Hike through Opua Forest, paddle a traditional canoe, or parasail high in the sky.
- Get out of town: There's more to discover away from the bay. Just give us 48 hours' notice, and GoBe can arrange for your driver to whisk you further afield. Travel inland through scenic landscapes to visit boutique wineries. Stop at historic Kerikeri to see Kemp House and the Stone Store, two of New Zealand's oldest buildings, and gaze up at the country's largest kauri tree (still growing after 2,000 years) in Waipoua Forest.
Please meet in the lobby of your downtown-area hotel or a nearby central location. Let us know the name of your hotel/preferred meeting location when you reserve this tour so we know where to meet you. Your driver waits with a GoBe sign with your name.
Dress for the weather with flat, comfortable shoes for walking and don't forget your sunscreen and bottled water. Bring local currency for optional food and souvenir purchases and your photo ID. Have some specific ideas in mind or just want a general overview of the city? Discuss your wishes for the day's itinerary with your driver. Or let your driver make recommendations. Not sure where you want to go? Our Concierge Service can assist you with a custom-designed itinerary. We've got your ride, now set out and explore.
Get out and explore or enjoy the city panorama from the comfort of your vehicle. Folding wheelchairs can accompany you; however, the vehicle is not wheelchair lift equipped. Bring a companion to offer any assistance entering or exiting the vehicle.
