What to Expect
Enjoy this exciting full-day tour of Auckland, Black Forest Beach, and Rainforest Walk. The city extends over a narrow isthmus between the Waitemata Harbor on the Pacific Ocean, and the Manukau Harbor on the Tasman Sea. Begin your tour in front of the National Maritime Museum, which displays New Zealand’s America’s Cup Challenger from 1988.

Continue on to Queen Street, the "Golden Mile" of Auckland’s business and shopping district since Auckland was founded in 1840. Admire significant historic buildings which include the Auckland Ferry Building and Auckland Town Hall. Visit the Auckland Museum, Domain Parks and Gardens, and Paratai Drive, one of Auckland’s most expensive residential streets with fantastic views of the Waitemata Harbor and islands.

Your afternoon will begin with a visit to Arataki Visitors Centre, located in a lush bush setting. Here you will learn about the native flora and fauna. Then visit a black sand beach where you will feel the black sand beneath your feet as you stroll along some of the most awe-inspiring beaches the world has to offer.

Your tour continues on to the lush rainforest where you hear native birdsong as you walk the easy bush tracks amongst New Zealand’s famous kauri trees and giant tree ferns. See a cascading waterfall and experience the power of nature as you stand at the base of a 128-foot (39 meter) high waterfall.
