FAQ

Are lunches and snacks provided for my group throughout the day?

No, lunches are not automatically included in your private Auckland Tour. If you wish to include a high quality café lunch, please let us know at the time of booking and we can arrange that for an additional $40 per person. However, we do provide a ‘snack basket’ with iconic NZ snacks and beverages. If you do decide to add meals, please make sure you let us know about any special dietary requirements well in advance.

What do we get to see on our Full Day Tour?

You have the choice between Auckland City & West Coast, experiencing the Maori culture or going on a walking bush tour. All options are unique experiences and have their own appeal. Contact us for further information and help.

Can I see all of Auckland’s highlights in a full day tour?

No, seeing all of Auckland’s highlights in one day isn’t possible, please contact us to help you choose what the best option is for you. We have multiple Full-day tours on offer and can customise one for your needs.

I have children, can I bring them along?

Yes, of course. Please let us know when booking how many children you are bringing with you and how old they are, so we can plan accordingly. Children aged 4-11 pay 50% of an adult price and infants are free. We will provide car seats for children in accordance to NZ law.

What do I need to bring for the day?

Please make sure you wear flat walking shoes, a rain coat and outdoor clothing that suits the weather conditions. Please remember, the weather can change quickly in New Zealand. Also a sun hat, sunscreen and other sun protection is essential. Otherwise you will probably need a camera and a smile to capture this unique experience.

What happens if it’s raining and bad weather?

We try to accommodate the weather as much as we can. Obviously we cannot change the weather so we ask you to bring the right footwear and rain coat. NZ is beautiful, even in the rain.

What is your Cancellation Policy?

After booking has been confirmed and more than 30 days: 20%. Between 48 hours and 30 days: 50%. Less than 48 hours or no-shows: 100%. Please note that in some instances, such as during major events in New Zealand or for other reasons, we may agree cancellation charges different to the above.
