Auckland Private Shore Excursions

Auckland tours, Auckland private tours, personal tours, ToursByLocals
Experience a unique Auckland shore excursion with a friendly personal guide from ToursByLocals. Your private tour guide knows the Auckland area as only locals do, and is eager to show you New Zealand's exciting "City of Sails," in a flexible tour that highlights your travel interests.

Discover the vibrant blend of Polynesian, European and Asian cultures that make this city by the bays such a fascinating place to visit, especially with a local guide who knows the best-kept secrets of the city behind the must-see sights of Auckland.

In your time ashore, you can see spectacular scenery from North Head, get the inside story on local history, shop your way through Takapuna's boutiques and relax on the beach with a view of dormant Rangitoto, the volcanic island.

Book an Auckland shore excursion tour offered by ToursByLocals, and ask your personal guide about customizing your private tour to include exactly what you want to see and do. Go global — tour by local!
Tour Guide Legal Requirements
In New Zealand there is no requirement for a guide to have a license to give tours.

However, if the tour guide is also the driver, then they are required to hold a Passenger Service License and have a Private Hire Registration.

The driver must hold a Passenger Endorsement and must also complete a log book, and must record all work time. Drivers must not exceed the allowable work time.

The vehicle must hold a Certificate of fitness (CoF)

Some rental vehicles are not suitable as Passenger Service vehicles due to the narrow aisle space, seating arrangements and lack of cargo barriers. Most rental company contracts forbid the vehicle being used in a passenger service. report error

All ToursByLocals guides have met our ToursByLocals Guide Requirements which includes warranting that they can legally give the tours they offer.
Deboarding Requirements
Citizens of many countries do not require a visa to enter New Zealand.

Visit the New Zealand Government Website for more details.

  • Choose your own guide. See their photos, read their bios and communicate with them prior to booking your tour.
  • It's more affordable than you might think. Our pricing is per-tour NOT per-person so if there are 3 or more in your group, you'll probably pay less than if you took a big bus tour.
  • Every tour is private. Your guide will spend time only with you and the people you're traveling with.
  • Go at your own pace. See as much as you can or slow things down to a saunter. With your private guide, your day is flexible.
  • Benefit from a local's knowledge. Access more intimate, out of the way spots that have never seen a bus tour.
  • Every tour is customizable. See the sights YOU want, try the food YOU crave, learn about what interests YOU the most.
  • Questions? Talk to a REAL person. Our customer support team offers reliable, friendly service plus a 24 hour emergency hotline.
