Let Bush and Beach take you on a day tour to experience the best of Auckland sightseeing with an Auckland city tour in the morning combined with an afternoon nature tour – a day of variety and a great introduction to Auckland and New Zealand. Your experienced guide will help you get the most out of your day with us in and around Auckland.
Your morning Auckland city tour is designed to explore the history and sights of the city as well as see how Aucklanders live and play. Auckland City is built around the beautiful Waitematā harbour and it is known as the ‘City of Sails’. Your tour includes stops at iconic landmarks such as the Auckland Domain, Mount Victoria in Devonport and Westhaven marina. There is also a stop at a cafe by a beautiful beach and lots of photo opportunities all day.
Your afternoon eco tour is spent in the Waitakere Ranges. In just 30 minutes you leave behind the bustle of the city and step into the tranquility of the rainforest.
Travel to the Arataki Visitor Centre, an information centre built high on the ridge of the Waitakere Ranges. From here you get breathtaking panoramic views across the rainforest to Auckland’s two harbours. The visitors centre is also home to some traditional Māori carvings and your guide will talk about them and explain their significance for the area.
Continue on to the lush native rainforest where you walk the easy tracks among giant tree ferns and view New Zealand’s famous kauri trees and silver ferns.
Move on to experience the power of the wild and rugged west coast. Feel the black sand of Piha Beach beneath your feet as you stroll along one of the most awe-inspiring beaches the world has to offer. This is the perfect Auckland day tour.
During the afternoon we also include a New Zealand style afternoon tea including biscuits (cookies), manuka honey, tea and coffee or juice.
As this is a private tour the itinerary is flexible to suit your interests. Let us know what you are keen to see or have a chat with your guide on the day.
