Experience the highlights of Auckland on a full-day tour that covers a seaside village and the black-sand beaches of the West Coast.

Visit the rainforest and stroll past kauri trees and other flora and fauna native to New Zealand.
What You'll Get
After pickup from your downtown hotel or the cruise port, settle into your luxury vehicle for a full-day excursion around Auckland and the West Coast. You'll travel with a small group limited to 15 passengers to ensure a more personalized experience with your guide.
Be amazed by dramatic vistas from atop several of Auckland's 48 volcanic cones, including Auckland Domain with its portal to the Auckland Museum. Travel past colonial homes in the suburb of Parnell and along Tamaki Drive with sweeping views across Waitemata Harbour, spanned by the Auckland Harbour Bridge. Drive to Mission Bay, the city's most well-known beach, and see Rangitoto Island and the charming village of Devonport — home to Mt. Victoria.
Your driver-guide continues on through Titirangi, an artists enclave on Manukau Harbour. On arrival at the Arataki Visitor Centre, gateway to the Waitakere Ranges, capture vistas of the Tasman Sea and Pacific Ocean. Soaring cliffs, roaring surf, and volcanic black-sand beaches are the highlights along the North Island's rugged West Coast.
Finish with a walk through subtropical rainforest, where your guide points out ancient kauri, pohutukawa (aka New Zealand Christmas trees), and other native flora and fauna. Your 8-hour itinerary ends with drop-off at your Auckland city hotel or cruise port.
