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.
Highlights
  • 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.

My husband and I were on a cruise from Melbourne, Australia through New Zealand. As with most of our ports on this cruise, we had just one full day to check out the big city of Auckland. Wanting to see as much as possible in this short time, we scheduled a TIME Unlimited Tour.

We're delighted you enjoyed your tour with us so much that you would kidnap Hazel.....we just love her too, so would need to kidnap her back! By the way one of the things we are most proud of in our business is the wonderful guides that work for and with us. They are all caring, highly-knowledgeable and truly love what they do, showing our guests around places in Auckland and throughout New Zealand that we are all passionate about. Anyway maybe you can return to our beautiful shores again one day and we could host you again, so we can all enjoy having her! Ka kite ano (see you again soon), Neill & Ceillhe Sperath
