Auckland Day Tours, Shore Excursions, Short Trips

Haere Mai and welcome to Auckland, the City of Sails!

 

Are you looking for a great day trip when you are in Auckland or on a shore excursion?

Awesome – here are the perfect sightseeing tours for you to get a first impression of what New Zealand is all about!

Auckland, built on approx. 50 volcanoes, is the gateway into New Zealand and renowned as the City of Sails with beautiful shore lines and native bush surrounding New Zealand’s largest city. We show you the city highlights and stunning nature.

Marvel at the Maori Haka, enjoy a wine tasting of New Zealand’s award-winning wines, see charming districts with old colonial-style villas or jump a bungy from the tallest building in the southern hemisphere – the Sky Tower. Explore the Arataki Centre perched high in the Waitakere Ranges, where the sweeping decks offer breath taking panoramic views from the Tasman Sea to the Pacific Ocean. The options of this vibrant city are endless.

In a small group or on a private tour you will get a personalised experience and explore places that larger coaches cannot reach. Enjoy your customized  tours and one of the best private day trips,  pre-/post tours in Auckland.

Only minutes from the “City of Sails” you can enjoy golden and black sand beaches, rugged coastlines, native rainforest and amazing views of the Hauraki Gulf (where the America’s Cup sailing regatta is held), volcanic islands and more.

“Great Days designed a custom - spectacular day in Auckland for my 14 year old and I. We started by visiting the official must see sights but as we discovered all the adrenaline filled activities that the city has to offer- we were able to easily modify our plan and ended up doing the 328 meter Sky Jump! Andreas also helped us create an itinerary for the other days we were in the country. He has contacts throughout New Zealand and can organize multi-day trips."
