ALL INCLUSIVE…this personalised, small group 'true' ECO-tour (comprising the Nature, Culture, Environmental & Conservation elements in TIES criteria), is owned and operated by New Zealand and Maori hosts.
We take you out of the city to explore the West Auckland region where our family has lived since 1922. We ONLY operate in the area we live, so profits are directed back into our community.
Enjoy AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCES (with very little travelling!) that include;
lunch, (with wine/beer at an upmarket cafe),
Waitakere rainforest, (a guided tour of Arataki Information Centre),
craft-shopping, (100% NZ products),
wine tasting, (at an award winning winery),
honey sampling, (at BeesOnline),
gannet (sea-bird) colony,
Muriwai beach, (black iron-sands),
visit to our SHEEP FARM,
Maori greeting into our historic Homestead,
overview of Maori culture,
hands-on animal experience,
see a real woolshed,
and afternoon tea inside our typical NZ family home.
…yes! ALL that in ONE day!!
We also have a 'unique-to-Auckland' TREE PLANTING project inwhich we plant a tree to offset this tour's emissions for every tour run. Native tree - (certificates issued, trees tagged and protected by New Zealand Government Law, forever), are planted on our own farm's Carbon Credit Reserve.
SHORE EXCURSIONS (or Group Tours) are available, and can include an informative ‘Kiwiana-themed’ lamb roast/BBQ lunch at our farm (24 pax maximum, bookings essential).
We have been operating since 2002, and hold all operating licences (including food handling certificate).
Compare our itinerary, genuine experiences AND price, …you'll not find better value for your money...guaranteed!
and PS, ...we are NOT the commercialised ‘Coast to Coast’ or ‘Auckland Countryside Experience’ shore excursion option, listed on the major cruise line websites!
