This tour combines the best of Auckland city with the best of Auckland nature in the afternoon. The Auckland City tour is an easy morning introduction to the diverse city of Auckland. The tour has plenty of photo opportunities and includes the views from Mount Victoria in Devonport which are not to be missed. The afternoon nature tour is a great introduction to New Zealand nature and visits some stunning scenery of rainforest and beaches. Easy walking tracks and dramatic coastlines are only a short drive from Auckland city centre. Our experienced guides and small group size means you will be well looked after.
Your morning Auckland city tour is designed to explore the history and sights of the city as well as see how Aucklanders 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.
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.

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.
