AUCKLAND TOUR OPTIONS.
Kia Ora, and Welcome to ‘Coast to Coast Tours’.
Come & be part of the region where our family has lived since 1922
as we take you on a unique tour to experience the Auckland coast and countryside!
In no time at all…(unbelievably, just 40 minutes away from downtown Auckland)
you can begin to experience the ‘real’ New Zealand.
With [at least] 9 activities in one, “un-hurried” day, you will agree these tours are true value-for-money.
YES! …people do wonder just how they can do all of these activities and NOT FEEL RUSHED
…but our guests report it -IS- true
“we were not rushed at any time during the duration of the day.
A lot of tours are rushy but this one is not”. – Tripadvisor (Oct 1 2010)
PLEASE NOTE: we focus our tours only on the West Auckland region…
because we believe in LOCAL operation!
ALL tours visit our sheep farm & Homestead
WEST AUCKLAND (just 40 minutes from Downtown Auckland)
We’ve often been asked why we don’t take tourists further afield on day trips to Rotorua, Bay of Islands, Coromandel Peninsula or even Waiheke and Great Barrier Island, (like most other Auckland tour operators do!) ……Well, we simply choose not to.
We aim to follow the ‘true’ Eco-tour practice of local business operation.
Operating in our local area maintains our SUSTAINABILITY.
The west Auckland region is where our family has lived since 1922, and the genuine and authentic EXPERIENCES we give to you, come from the knowledge we have gained about the region where we live.
We also buy our goods & services locally,
and Stuart is an honorary member of our local Kumeu Visitor Information Centre.
Our Native tree planting project will also benefit our local community with reforestation of our farmland,
from the trees we plant for every tour we run.
