Auckland City and West Coast Full-Day Tour
US$198.50
Overview
As New Zealand’s largest city, Auckland has it all—beautiful beaches, vibrant neighborhoods, and dramatic coastal scenery. This tour visits all best viewpoints in one day with a comprehensive itinerary that takes in both Auckland City and the West Coast. Visit Devonport, Parnell, and Auckland Harbour Bridge; travel through the Waitakere Ranges; and discover the black sand beaches and kauri forests of the West Coast.
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.

Gracious Hosts

Because of a mix-up the previous day (not with this company), this tour company and guides were able to accommodate us to make a sour experience one of the best. Guides were informative with a full narrative. There was ample time spent at all stops.More
