Auckland City of Sails

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 337

Spend three days exploring Auckland, known as the “City of Sails” because of the many yachts in the harbour. See the sights and scenery that have made this city a favourite with tourists.


Quality-of-life polls routinely rank New Zealand’s largest city within the world’s top 10, and it’s easy to see why. Auckland seduces visitors with its laid back pace, world class museums, galleries and gardens. Enjoy them on an included full day tour which includes panoramic views from Mt Eden, as well as historic Parnell Village. You’ll also visit the nearby Waitakere Ranges and Arataki Centre for a truly spectacular coastal outlook, and pay a visit to the black sand beach where ‘The Piano’ was filmed.

Day 2

Best of Both Worlds

Experience the best sights of Auckland City in the morning combined with an afternoon Wilderness Experience -- a day of contrasts. Auckland is set on 52 dormant volcanic cones and between two harbours, the sparkling Waitemata and the brooding Manukau. Known as the City of Sails, it's New Zealand's largest and busiest city. The morning tour is a journey of discovery designed to explore the history and sights as well as see how Aucklanders live and play.

A 30 minute drive from downtown Auckland brings you to the Arataki Centre, the gateway to the rain forest, where the sweeping decks give breathtaking panoramic views from the Tasman Sea to the Pacific Ocean. Absorb the local history and admire the traditional Maori carvings that stand guard there. Head further west and experience the power of the wild and rugged west coast. Feel the black sand beneath your feet as you stroll along some of the most awe-inspiring beaches the world has to offer.

With your knowledgeable and experienced guide, your eco-tour continues on to the lush rain forest where you hear native birdsong as you walk the easy bush tracks amongst New Zealand's famous kauri trees and giant tree ferns.
