Some of our stops include:
- Craftmarket (NZ made products)…why buy fake?
- Wine-tasting (award-winning winery)…why book a separate wine-tasting tour?
- Lunch (your choice with wine/beer!)…why have the time and worry of finding something to eat?
- Muriwai Beach (black sands & bird colony)…why NOT see this region with a local tour company ?
- Arataki Visitor’s Centre (Waitakere Rainforest)…don’t miss one of Auckland’s most famous attractions!
- Sheepworld (YES, see sheep in Auckland)…you don’t have to travel for hours to experience sheep!
This tour is renowned as Auckland’s best “value-for-money” Shore Excursion tour
Unfortunately, the “value-for-money” part of any item is often overlooked when the price is viewed without any in-depth knowledge of the product.
You may like to ask yourself; “What value” do I place on…
- Knowing who will be hosting me right from the moment my email inquiry is answered? [well, hopefully answered!]. On this tour, it is US [the owner/operators] who you will be with, as we don’t have staff or guides nor pass you onto any one else. >(Ever hoped you weren’t going to have “that” guide after reading reviews about a tour?)
- Having my lunch [with beverage] included in the price? On this tour, we take you to an upmarket cafe/restaurant and you choose your own meal. The menu is rated superb by most, that’s why it is regarded as one of your “experiences” during your tour. >(Ever booked a tour with no lunch provided and been worried what-how-and-when you were going to get your lunch?)
- Traveling in a small group? On this tour, it is very personalised with our minivan taking just 11 persons. >(Ever felt like a mob of sheep on large coach tours?)
- Having lots of experiences all on the one tour? On our tours we stop many times and you are guaranteed to have real New Zealand “experiences”. >(Ever had to take more than one tour of the same region just so you could have more than one experience?)
- Being just a short distance from your ship? On many of our tours you are only minutes from your ship. More, your precious time is not taken up in travel. >(Ever had a tour drive most of the day for you to see one or two things … OR have you ever needed to return to your ship/hotel in an emergency?)
We hope you will consider allowing us to host you…to provide you with a memorable Auckland Shore Excursion tour.
…we look forward to meeting you soon – Peter & Lola.
NO long journeys
incredibly we can provide a tour with as little as no more than 40 minutes from your ship! (so WHY spend your precious time sitting in a bus? – you want to see and experience as much as possible during your time in Auckland…don’t you?)
(or swimming, …or waiting around for others!)

FLEXIBLE start/finish time
