Auckland top city for visitor experiences

The well-respected travel guide has rated Auckland highly in terms of visitor experiences, with the city occupying the top 2 spaces in the list of New Zealand’s greatest areas of visitor interest. The top New Zealand experience was chosen to be Auckland Harbour and Hauraki Gulf, with the second spot filled by urban Auckland. These two choices combine natural beauty with all the vibrancy that urban centres are famous for. The Lonely Planet guide also praised what lies beyond Auckland, saying that within an hour’s drive from the city centre, visitors can find a hugely different and diverse landscape, including thermal springs, dense tracts of rainforest, wildlife reserves, and wineries. Those who are hoping to enjoy New Zealand tours in the future should definitely make visiting Auckland a must on their travels, a city that has been voted by The Lonely Planet as one of the best for visitor experiences.
