A comprehensive private tour of the City of Auckland
This one -day tour provides a perfect opportunity to experience the variety that Auckland offers, in terms of natural beauty and local culture.
We admire the sparkling harbour and its various bays and have the opportunity to visit the summit of an extinct volcano. Then we enjoy some magnificent city parks, visit beautiful city beaches and take a short coastal walk, stroll around a marina, and experience the downtown bustle of a vibrant city.
Coffee breaks will be a chance to relax, and lunchtime will provide the opportunity to sample the local fare. There will be time for photos along the way, and if you have special interests or particular requirements, please let me know.
I can promise you an enjoyable, informative, and memorable day.
We start our tour on the scenic Tamaki Drive, which stretches along the Auckland waterfront. Our first photo opportunity stop is at the prestigious Paratai Drive, overlooking the harbour.
Proceeding on round the bays we come to the Michael Joseph Savage Memorial, then Mission Bay, the art deco fountain, and its main street lined with cafes.
Moving on, we pass the seaside village of St Heliers, then Archilles Point for more views of the Waitemata Harbour.
We proceed through some of Auckland's more expensive suburbs to the beautiful Cornwall Park. We then visit Mt Eden and enjoy an optional walk to the summit, with panoramic views of the city and Auckland's twin harbours.
We continue on to the Auckland Domain to visit the Wintergarden.
We cross the Harbour Bridge and visit the seaside suburb of Devonport. We visit and explore what North Head has to offer.
Then onto Takapuna beach, arguably Auckland's best beach and back to your end destination
