    What to Expect
    Your day will begin with a pickup from the steps at at 148 Quay St (opposite Queens Wharf) at 9am.
    You will be driven down the coastline along Tamaki Drive, past Auckland's popular beaches towards Achilles Point, where you will get a great view of the volcanoes of Rangitoto and Brown's Island. 
    You will then be driven to the four largest and youngest volcanoes in central Auckland: Mt Wellington, Mangere Mountain, One Tree Hill, and finally Mt Eden. You will walk around the craters of these volcanoes and enjoy the magnificent views from the summits.
    At 1:30pm you will arrive back in the city for lunch before leaving again from 148 Quay St at 3pm.
    Beginning the afternoon portion of the tour, you will cross the Harbour Bridge to Lake Pupuke, which is a gigantic volcanic explosion crater.
    You will then be taken to O'Neil's Bay, where you will enjoy a short walk to see where lava flows have run through an ancient forest, creating unique tree molds. There is then an option of a 15-minute stroll along Takapuna Beach, where you will be picked up at the end.
    Heading to North Head volcano, you will explore the tunnels and large gun emplacements. Finishing up at Mt Victoria volcano, enjoy the magnificent views of Auckland City from the opposite side of the harbour.
    There is then the option to stay in Devonport for dinner and take the ferry back to Auckland City in your own time and expense, or be driven back across the Harbour Bridge to finish up at 148 Quay St before 7pm.

    Mike was a great guide - very knowledgable, engaging and entertaining. He went out of his way to make sure the tour fitted well with everyone on it. The information on the volcano history and possible future activity was fascinating. A grand day out.

    This was a very well thought out tour, that focused on volcanoes in a locale where much of the city was built on volcanoes. (As a result, the tour took you to much of the city). Highly recommended, with a lot of different stuff (like...More
