1. Auckland: Half-Day Private City Highlights Tour
Discover a different side of Auckland on a sightseeing tour with a local guide. Meet your guide in your hotel lobby or cruise ship terminal and hop in the air-conditioned van that will take your first stop. Start your day with a short walk through the mystic rainforest in the city. Next, visit the historic Bastion Point and find out why Auckland is called the 'City of Sails'. At Orakei Marae, learn more about Maori history and the Ngati Whatua tribe. Later, stop at a seaside village and enjoy fantastic views of Auckland's largest volcano, Rangitoto, and Brown's Island. Finally, visit Maungakiekie, the second largest volcano in Auckland and a place of remembrance for both the Maori and European people of New Zealand. Enjoy incredible views over the Hauraki Gulf, Auckland City, and Rangitoto, from the peak of One Tree Hill before heading back to your hotel.
