...Having a "local" show you around is certainly the way to go!
We are based at Muriwai Beach, west Auckland, (just 40 minutes from Downtown Auckland). Many tours visit this region, but we are the tour that LIVES here! As our family were the early pioneers to this area, settling here in 1922, we know this region best, so we choose to focus our tours solely on this area. We have our guests not only "become part of our region", but we are are able to give back to our local community, thus maintaining our sustainability. We also plant a Native tree in our farm's own Reserves for every tour we run.
You cement your tour by having a tree growing in our community, and we make the tour you take with us Carbon Neutral.
This tour are "un-hurried" (unless you require to get back to the city by a certain time). Our tours also have minimal walking, so are ideal for SENIORS or people that need a tour at a slower-pace!
We have had wheelchairs and folk on walkers... (so as long as you are able to get in and out of our vehicle that's OK).
*** NO HIKING ... NO LONG JOURNEYS ***
and certainly NO eating your lunch on the bus !
>> Are you are disembarking a Cruise and have luggage? No worries! We will gladly carry it with us on your tour...and should you be flying back home, we can even transfer you to the Airport for a small extra charge!
