Best of Both Worlds Tour

Experience the best of Auckland sightseeing with an Auckland city tour in the morning combined with the afternoon eco tour - the Wilderness Experience – a day of contrasts.

Best of Both Worlds Tour

Your morning Auckland city tour is designed to explore the history and sights of the city as well as see how Aucklander's live and play. Auckland is set on over 50 dormant volcanos and between two harbours. Known as the City of Sails, it’s New Zealand’s largest and busiest city. This small group city tour includes stops at iconic landmarks such as Mount Victoria in Devonport and Westhaven marina. There is 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 tranquillity of the rainforest.

Travel to the Arataki 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 Maori carvings and your guide will talk about them and explain their significance for the area.

Continue on to the lush 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. The perfect Auckland day trip.
