Ted Tour, Bay of Islands

This is your chance to join Sir Graham and Lady Raewyn Henry in the Bay of Islands as they share this beautiful slice of Kiwi paradise with old friends and new.
We’ll spend three nights staying at the iconic Duke of Marlborough Hotel on the Russell waterfront. Holding New Zealand's first liquor licence, this historical beauty has been lovingly restored and offers a great place to relax and unwind.
Get to know the group better on the first evening with a private dinner at Charlotte’s Kitchen on the wharf at Paihia.

The following day, after breakfast at The Duke, we’ll head off on a privately- chartered boat to explore this unmissable part of New Zealand, cruising through a number of islands in the bay, with a stop at the gorgeous Otehei Bay on Urupukapuka Island. Weather permitting, we’ll also head out to Cape Brett Peninsula and the famous Hole in the Rock.
On Wednesday we’ll head by boat across to Waitangi and the Treaty Grounds. After a short private tour, you’ll have time at leisure to explore the grounds, before enjoying a casual lunch on the hill overlooking the bay, followed by a private Powhiri and cultural performance.

Our final group “Rascals & Reprobates” dinner on-site at The Duke of Marlborough Hotel will begin with drinks in the Garden Bar before a three-course dinner on the terrace.
