Experience the highlights of Auckland on a full-day tour that covers a seaside village and the black-sand beaches of the West Coast. Travel in a luxury Mercedes vehicle past Auckland’s ancient volcanoes and see dramatic ocean vistas along an untamed coastline. Visit the rainforest and stroll past kauri trees and other flora and fauna native to New Zealand.
  • Visit Auckland neighborhoods including Devonport, Parnell, and Titirangi
  • Spectacular views of the Waitakere Ranges and West Coast beaches
  • Great value: hotel pickup, lunch, and round-trip transport included
  • Personalized experience: small group of up to 15 people
What to Expect
After pickup from your hotel, set out to explore the city aboard a luxury air-conditioned vehicle. Pass landmarks including Auckland Domain, the Sky Tower, and Auckland Museum; travel through the affluent district of Parnell; then follow the scenic Tamaki Drive, which affords impressive views over Waitemata Harbour and Auckland Harbour Bridge. Continue along the coast, stopping at the beaches of Mission Bay and the seafront village of Devonport, enjoying views of Rangitoto Island and Mt Victoria. After a short stop in Titirangi, arrive at the Arataki Visitor Centre in the Waitakere Ranges Regional Park, where you can learn more about the region’s geology, wildlife, and Maori heritage. Driving further down the West Coast, hop out to stroll along the black volcanic sands of Piha Beach and marvel at the gigantic kauri trees of the so-called ‘Kauri Coast’. Back in Auckland, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
