- HALF DAY -


AUCKLAND SHORE EXCURSION TOURS

Finding time is against you?
.......................Our Half day (or "mini") Auckland Shore Excursion tours are just the answer because you have very little in-the-bus time but get to do THREE Auckland "must-do's" (to hard-to-get-to places).
These tours are timed to have you back before 1pm, alternatively, begin after lunchtime.



MORNING tour 9AM - 12:30 ... AFTERNOON tour 1PM - 4:30


  • NO minimums for these Half day tours
  • Tours are ALL-inclusive (pick-up, entry fees, tastings)
  • Can be specifically timed for Cruise Ship departures!



TOURS INCLUDE:


 

  • CRAFT-MARKET
  • WINE TASTING
  • MURIWAI BEACH -&- GANNET COLONY


MORNING (AM) TOUR: Muriwai, wine, crafts.

AFTERNOON (PM) TOUR: crafts, wine, Muriwai.

Your tour includes pick-up (from central city accommodations and cruise ship ports). The three stops we take you to are:


  • MURIWAI BEACH -&- GANNET COLONY

Auckland tours to this part of Auckland are extremely popular, with most cruise ship tours making some sort of trip here. The advantage of doing your shore excursion with us is that as locals we combine an informative narrative of this awe inspiring place, as well as a guided tour out to one of Auckland's "world-famous" attractions...

The takapu (gannet). Around 1,200 birds in this colony. Famous because these migratory birds are one of the very few colonies in the world to make their nests on the mainland. There's an easy walk out to viewing decks where you can almost touch the birds as they hover overhead.


gannets nest Sept - April


The 30 mile uninterrupted stretch of Muriwai Beach is a sight to see in itself, but...... you can get up close to touch the wild Tasman Sea, (if you dare!) as you stroll the shoreline of these black sands.




  • WINE-TASTING

The advantage of taking your excursion with us is the wine-tasting is included in the price of your tour. We take you to an award winning winery in the Kumeu (historic) region of Auckland, where you can sample a good selection of both red and white varieties.There's also opportunity to purchase direct from the cellar shop if you so wish.



  • CRAFT-MARKET

No overseas trip is complete without a souvenir or two, and here at Craftworld you will be spoiled for choice at the huge array of NZ wares on offer. This is NOT a "pressure-selling" stop, and you are welcome to browse at other stores if you like...


- Craftworld has generously given us a 15% discount voucher (which we pass on in full to our guests!). The very reason we bring our visitors here is that many ofthe items sold here are unique (unavailable in other city shops) simply because it has come direct from the crafter themselves! The wares are authentic and genuine.
