Experience the contrasts of Auckland and its surrounding native bush and coastal areas on this full-day tour. See the best sights of the city in the morning and in the afternoon take a trip to the natural treasures of the Waitakere Ranges Regional Park.

Begin your day with a hotel pickup and enjoy a comprehensive tour while absorbing the city's highlights. Cross the Harbour Bridge and take in spectacular views of Auckland's skyline. Next, pass by Queen Street, the “Golden Mile” of Auckland's business and shopping district. Marvel at architectural styles from the 1880s as well as modern high rises.

Continue to Wynyard Quarter, the city's vibrant precinct. Wander among the sculptures and watch the drawbridge being raised for luxury yachts passing in and out of Viaduct Harbour. Visit the Auckland Museum and explore fascinating exhibits that duly pay tribute to New Zealand's Maorian and European history.

In the afternoon, journey west across the Waitakere Ranges to a contrasting ecosystem of lush rainforests and black sand beaches. Visit the Arataki Visitors Center and enjoy panoramic views of the city and Manukau Harbour. Take a guided bush walk and marvel at ancient kauri trees, giant ferns, and native birds.

Stroll along the black iron sand and roaring surf of Auckland's west-coast beaches. Take in the peacefulness of cascading waterfalls and the beauty of nature before returning to your hotel.
