Tour description provided by Viator

Experience the best sights of Auckland City in the morning combined with an afternoon wilderness experience.

Auckland is set on 48 dormant volcanic cones and between two harbors, the sparkling Waitemata and the brooding Manukau. Known as the City of Sails, it's New Zealand's largest and busiest city. Your morning tour is a journey of discovery designed to explore the history and sights as well as see how Aucklanders live and play.

Join the wilderness experience in the afternoon to continue your tour. Just 30 kilometres from downtown Auckland is the city's largest Regional Park - the Waitakere Ranges. Visit the Arataki Centre where you enjoy spectacular views back to the city and of both harbours. Admire the magnificent Maori carvings that stand guard there. Continue on to the wild and rugged west coast where you have the opportunity to stroll on an unspoiled beach. Here you learn about the fascinating local history and flora and fauna of the region from your guide. A short journey brings you to the lush rainforest where you walk amongst giant tree ferns and hear native birds. This gives a true insight and feel for our unspoiled native forest, a classic Kiwi experience. Visit a magnificent specimen of New Zealand's famous Kauri trees.
