Contiki tours add one night in Auckland; we’re “on the map as must-see””

Press Release – Contiki Tours
Leading 18-35’s travel operator Contiki Holidays is now including an overnight stay in Auckland on its main North Island tours.

“Feedback from our clients to see more of Auckland has prompted us to make this addition so they can experience the city in true Contiki style and not only as an additional night before or after their tour,” says Contiki General Manager Tony Laskey.

“Auckland is well and truly on the map as a must-visit city with young travellers and has an array of new shopping and entertainment experiences including new developments like Wynyard Quarter and Britomart, which are popular with Contiki travellers.”

Laskey says it is a win-win situation as it is enabling travellers explore New Zealand’s biggest city while also fuelling the local economy.

As part of the overnight stay, travellers get included admission up the Sky Tower to experience the 360-degree view of New Zealand’s biggest city, VIP entry to one of Auckland’s hottest nightspots and accommodation at Accor’s Mercure Hotel.

The tours featuring a night in Auckland are The Big Tiki, a 19-day tour of New Zealand; Northern Choice, an 11-day tour making its way from Christchurch to Auckland or vice-versa; and Sun and Steam, a seven-day tour of the upper North Island starting and finishing in Auckland.

Contiki’s overnight stays in Auckland begin on October 6. For more information on Contiki Holidays, visit
