Best of Both Worlds Tour

Award winning guided tour company Bush and Beach takes you to experience the best of Auckland sightseeing with an Auckland city tour in the morning combined with the afternoon eco tour – the Wilderness Experience – a day of contrasts.

Your morning city highlights tour is a journey of discovery designed to explore the history and sights as well as see how Aucklanders live and play. Auckland is set on over 50 dormant volcanic cones and between two harbours. Known as the City of Sails, it’s New Zealand’s largest and busiest city.

Your afternoon eco tour is spent in the Waitakere Ranges. In just 30 minutes you leave behind the bustle of the city and step into the tranquillity of the rainforest.

Travel to the Arataki Centre perched high on the ridge of the Waitakere Ranges and enjoy breathtaking panoramic views from the Tasman Sea to the Pacific Ocean.

Continue on to the lush rainforest where you walk the easy tracks among giant tree ferns and view New Zealand’s famous kauri trees.

Move on to experience the power of the wild and rugged west coast. Feel the black sand of Piha beneath your feet as you stroll along some of the most awe-inspiring beaches the world has to offer. The perfect Auckland day trip.

During the afternoon we also include a New Zealand style afternoon tea including Anzac biscuits and tea and coffee or juice.
