Our_small_guided_sightseeing tour groups go further and do more. Our guided tours of Auckland and New Zealand are not sit on the bus and watch it go by, they are more about getting out seeing it, touching it and doing it.
“As_an_Auckland_local, I will show you my favourite places, from my Auckland City Tour to a One Day Tour to Piha Beach or our Two Day Tour to Rotorua, Taupo and the Waitomo Caves. These are just some of my guided tours, we also run Beer and Wine Tasting Tours and our challenging Golf Tours.”
We do Private Guided Tours for New Zealanders, let me do the planing and driving, you take the photos with no stress. North island or South Island or both from 5 days to 5 weeks. I will arrange all hotels and activities, you just need to think about food and drink. I have many favourite places that we must eat at, from the best ever breakfast sandwiches, to New Zealand’s best lamb restaurant and everything in between.
Let me know how many people and how many days, we will take it from there and make it happen. We can start from any major town or city.
And if you’re visiting New Zealand or Auckland for a half day or have several days to see the country, our guided sightseeing adventures have something to offer everyone.
Our popular Auckland City Tour offers a quick enjoyable look at our home town. Enjoy the wonderful Waitemata Harbour and waterfront, drive past Mission Bay to a wonderful look out and walk the “plank”. From there you will pass through Parnell and Newmarket and up to Mt Eden, Auckland’s best volcano with views over the whole of Auckland City. Travel back down to the waterfront to see the Harbour Bridge. Then view the boats at Westhaven marina and the new open area Wynyard Quarter. It really is a wonderful city to live in.
Auckland City Tour is a must see before you head out on our most popular Day Tour to Piha Beach. This walking tour takes in lush green rain forest in the Waitakere Ranges with breathtaking views of giant Kauri trees, including the silver fern. Visit the world famous Piha Beach on the wild west coast with black sand, awesome waves and the cleanest waterfalls and rock pools you will ever see. See the start of the Hillary Trail and get a taste of walking on it.
