Information about Auckland
Auckland, based around two large harbours in the narrow neck of the North Island of New Zealand, is hands down the liveliest city of the country. Both its urban fabric and natural beauty are something worth cherishing forever. Take a ferry here and there, and you can reach some of the best beaches and volcanic islands of the Pacific as well. Moreover, there are a bunch of adventure activities waiting for you to be indulged in – skydiving, bungee jumping, water rafting, canoeing, canyoning, bridge climbing and so on. Since the options are so many, it would be wise to consult an Auckland travel guide before deciding on the itinerary. While on the trip, do keep an Auckland map handy in case you need to find your way to different destinations on your own.
Weather in Auckland: Auckland has an oceanic temperate climate, vey similar to most Australasian cities. Located just by the sea, the city has a heightened level of humidity. During the summer months from late November to February, temperature in Auckland can be quite hot, but not uncomfortably. In fact, it is quite perfect for outdoor activities. The winters however, can be quite cold and damp, and thus not very ideal for sightseeing or beach activities.
Nightlife in Auckland: Night time in New Zealand, Auckland is just as lively as the day. Ponsonby, Britomart and K’road have multiple bars, pubs and nightclubs to dance the night away with good music and flowing drinks. Other than that, one can dine in the spectacular 360- degree revolving diner atop the Sky Tower, or explore the night sky from Auckland’s Stardome Observatory and Planetarium, or take an overnight cruise around the Waitemata Harbour and Islands, or visit the many night markets of Auckland. Give Spookers – Australasia’s only haunted attraction park a try.
Shopping in Auckland: From high-end malls to local shops to thrift markets, the options for a retail therapy are aplenty. Britomart is a posh shopping neighbourhood in the CBD area, with a number of international and local brands. High Street and Kitchener Street are quite exclusive for clothes and jewelleries. While Britomart caters to sophisticated taste, Ponsonby and Aotea Markets are home to vintage shops and quirky boutiques. Otara Flea Market, Parnell Farmer’s Market and Takapuna Beach Night Market are for budget shopping.
Food in Auckland: Auckland has some magnificent food places around the city that one must try out. For a quirky breakfast delicacy instead of lunch and dinner, visit No 1 Pancake for an unbelievably unique range, at cheap rates.
Festivals in Auckland: Pasifika Festival, held around October every year, is probably the biggest cultural festival of entire New Zealand. The Christmas and holiday season is also celebrated with quite a lot of pomp and fervour.

Pruthisahil's 7 days trip to AucklandEarnslaw lodge was not that much good Each and every moment
Shobha's 5 days trip to AucklandIt was indeed a great tour of ours to a country like Newzealand. The tour was well organised with the help of your abled guidance and well planning. We appreciate the super coordination of our demands and supply by your side in an organised way. Nowhere we found difficulty. The days programme were executed orderly as per schedule. You also provided us (y)our Driver. Yes. Mr. Vaheguru Singh, ever smiling, an young driver mingled with us very well. We felt he is also one among us. He took us smoothly. The vehicle was also good to allow us to view the scenic beauty of Newzealand. Please convey our heartiest regards to Mr. Vaheguru Singh on our behalf. We appreciate the receipt of vouchers / tickets for the tourist spots.
Ritresh's 9 days trip to AucklandWe would like here to take a moment and appreciate Mr. Rohit Thakur and his team for the efforts they have put in organising a trip for us that will be cherished forever. Our’s was a 12 day 11 night trip to Europe covering Paris and Italy. The trip was very well organised and planned. We had received all the vouchers and details well in advance. Hub holiday team was easily accessible when in need. Looking forward to future trips with traveltriangle.
Manoj's 7 days trip to AucklandVery well planned and good support from pick your trail and travel triangle.
Rahul's 7 days trip to AucklandThe support from Kusum and her team was great. Right from the hotel / flight vouchers, intra city travel to visa assistance and forex, everything was smooth. They were always available throughout and were giving us daily updates on our itinerary. The only thing I felt could have been slightly better is the itinerary. While it was a short trip of 7 days to Zurich, Salzburg and Prague; few things in the itinerary were jam packed and were not feasible to do. Otherwise no complaints, was very happy with Centaur vacations. One word of caution to fellow travellers to Europe, it was hot and sultry in europe and the hotels don't have ACs there so please book accordingly.
Abhijit's 8 days trip to AucklandWe recently visited Switzerland and Austria through Travel Triangle for our honeymoon. Rohit from HubHolidays (one of the agent of Travel Triangle) designed our itinerary. To begin with i would say i was little skeptical going with Travel Triangle as this was my first trip with them and none of my acquaintance had gone with them. However our trip went smoothly thanks to Rohit who was there to help us at any time, be it day/night. All the hotels and sightseeing tickets were handed over to us well in advance which helped us to understand how we will be moving from one place to other. We lost our 1 day because of the airline problem but Rohit and Prashant helped us cover our entire itinerary despite loss of one valuable day. All in all i would say everything was crafted to perfection be it the itinerary or the hotel rooms or the sightseeing. We were delighted as all the things which were promised at the time of booking the tour were delivered. Once again heartfelt thanks to Rohit for all the support extended. Regards Abhijit and Apurva
Abhash's 7 days trip to AucklandThe trip was great. New Zealand a must place to visit. Experience with travel triangle was not great. Basically they work as a intermediary with travel agent and only to bring them on a platform. Don't expect any follow up or support from TT in case of concerns or delays, you need to separately follow up with agent. My personal experience was not good with TT, I never received a call to update status of anything right from booking of trip to issuance of Visa or ticket and I had to call them for all updates. Also, you would need to give them multiple reminder calls. South Island is the place to be. We enjoyed it the most
Mohit's 7 days trip to AucklandThe overall trip was good, it was well planned by the tour operator, all the documents for trip were given to us which made us little relax during trip, best part was these people were always in touch with us during the trip, few hotels given to us were really awesome but at few places, it could have been slightly better, it was a great memory for us, really Happy. best memories will be Jungfrau in Switzerland and sunset in Santorini
Bhargav's 14 days trip to AucklandI would like to thank the team of HubHoliday ,Mr.Amit Rana in particular and Mr.Vikas as well, for making our honeymoon trip a wonderful memory for the lifetime.The itinerary was perfect to cover both North and South Island highlights in 10days and was also a mix of romantic & adventure getaways.The best memories of the trip are as follows: -Kaituna river rafting -Hobbiton set -Tranz Alpine train from Greymouth to Christchurch -Self drive -Milford sound cruise However,I would like HubHoliday to consider the following points as well in order to improve upon the package offered : - The package cost can be revised as I felt after the trip was over that if I had booked all the hotels/flights/activities/transfers given by HubHoliday all by myself,the package cost would come around 3.25/3.5lakhs in total for 2 persons instead of 4 lakhs - the breakup being : Flights international/domestic and visa : around 1.25 lakhs , car in both islands : 15000 ,hotels : around75000 ,activities :around 1lakh . - The hotel in Christchurch should have been better:room was too clumsy for 2 people Anyways,I would definitely go with the friendly HubHoliday team in near future as well given the interest shown by them to improve further once I gave my feedback to them on the package cost. Regards Bhargav -Kaituna river rafting -Hobbiton set -Tranz Alpine train from Greymouth to Christchurch -Self drive -Milford sound cruise
