What You Can Expect
Explore the city and its surroundings, including a short forest walk in the Waitakere Ranges, where your guide points out flora and fauna native to this region of the North Island. You’re driven along the rugged western coastline to stroll a black sand beach nestled below wind-chiseled cliffs.
Learn about the Maori leaders that helped shape New Zealand (Aotearoa — translated as ‘Land of the Long White Cloud’).
Also explore scenic Tamaki Drive, a coastal road that skims Waitemata Harbour. Your tour also includes a Maori cultural performance at Auckland Museum that includes the Haka war dance. Your small-group tour ends with hotel drop-off.
This was an amazing tour. Sofia was an awesome guide, and besides seeing things relevant to the Maori culture, they also provided samples of NZ food that I probably would not have known about otherwise. You also get to see a lot of Auckland on this tour.
