About
Learn about the early history of Auckland with a visit to Cornwall Park and one tree hill, one of Auckland's many volcano's. We visit the Holy Trinity Cathedral a beautiful example of Pacific style stain glass windows and St Mary’s, New Zealand Kauri timber Gothic cathedral. You will enjoy the beautiful gardens in the Auckland Domain, along the way you will see beautiful examples of early colonial homes, and driving along Tamaki Drive to Mission Bay, you will see the contrast with modern beach side apartment living and the relaxed beach lifestyle many Aucklander’s enjoy. Around the marina and then over the Harbour Bridge to Devonport village with its galleries, cafes and shops this will give another perspective of Auckland living and time for lunch. In the afternoon we head west to the black sand beaches of Piha and lion Rock, the rain forest of the Waitakere’s ranges and the Arataki visitor centre before returning you back to your hotel.

A wonderful all day tour
We were picked up on time by a brand new MB van. Lorraine, our tour guide was well informed and had a brief discussion with us before starting so she could adjust the tour to our desired adventures. Turned out that on this Sunday morning my wife and I were the only guests. We were able to get a wonderful overview of Auckland, hitting the highlights and finding places that we would come back to later for a longer/detailed visit. We had nice lunch in the biotanical garden. Well worth the time and money, especially if your time in Auckland is limited.

Thank you High-Dry for taking the time to give your feedback on your Tour with us. We enjoy getting to know people from all over the world and in a small tour you really can understand what is of interest to guests for the day, when you only have a couple, we can easily make amendments to suit. All the best on our adventures and we wish you well on your next tour.
