Travel with the leaders in sustainable tourism and transport

Bush and Beach are celebrating running tours for 37 years, so when you book with us you know you are booking with a company that has plenty of experience.

For December 2021 we have great GIFT VOUCHER deals for wine tours to Kumeu or Matakana

We offer great opportunities for groups of friends or colleagues to get together for a day out – we have special pricing for our group day out options. They are generally priced for a group of 6 or more but we are happy to quote for a larger or smaller group. If you travel with us you are travelling with a company committed to sustainability.

If you want to charter one of our buses and drivers you can check out that option here.

If you are visiting Auckland we help you make the most of your time in Auckland. We offer enjoyable and innovative guided tours in small groups in and around Auckland either on our scheduled Auckland day tours or private tours.
