We embarked in Melbourne after flying over from Perth. This was our first time visiting Melbourne but it won't be our last!! Amazing city with wonderful art and coffee culture and soooo much to do around the river. People are extremely helpful and friendly.

Speights Brewery Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Very interesting and informative. Worth doing even if you dont drink beer as they give u a cider instead of beer. My husband loved it and it is the only gravity fed brewery.

Kaiori Wildlife Sanctuary Rating: 5+ out of 5+
This has been changed to Zealandia now and would recommend everyone who travels to Wellington to take this tour. Amazing flora and fauna and the volunteers who do the tours are simply fantastic. It is like going back to the Jurassic era and the stunning wildlife that you encounter is simply breathtaking. It is tranquil and they provide you with morning tea as well !!! A++++++++

We took the Deco tour and Aquarium. This was very disappointing, just rushed through to a 1920 shop hard sell sell. Then the aquarium had very little in the way of fish and very small. Coould be that in Australia we are spoilt with our fish and aquariums.

We took another tour to a Maori village and it was brilliant!!! We had a hungi which was lunch and was absolutely delicious. It was traditional and there were so many facets to the culture you could stay there 2 days. There was singing, Haka, games more singing and the history . They involved us all and you left feeling a little sad that you had to go. The people were sooo genuine.

Highly recommended.

Waiheke Walking Tour Rating: 5+ out of 5+
You hop on a ferry and are met the other end by a great tour guide. The scenery on Waiheke is stunning!! The talk by the guide is informative and fantastic .The morning tea down by the beach is wonderful and Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and Rachael Hunter have all frequented the cafe where we ate!! The winery was great and then a relaxing ferry ride back. This tour was a highlight of our trip to Auckland. Highly recommended
