Personal Tours:

Well I guess the name says it all. What is listed on this website is just a small part of what is on offer in and around this great city of Auckland.

Personal tours mean just that "design your own tour", whether this means you mix and match from one or all of our tours or you select some other sights to visit is totally up to you.

If you need a little help with your selection please don't hesitate to  contact us - that is what I am here for.

Shopping Tours:

Feeling "blue" then I have the tour for you! Retail therapy is always a good remedy, and with me driving, all you need to do is tell me what you are looking for and I will take you there. What better way could there be than for a group of friends getting together and going shopping while your men are watching the rugby.

For groups of 4 or more this is a very cost effective option for nights out on the town, trips to Erricson Stadium or outings to one of the many other venues that Auckland has to offer.

Why worry about where you are going to park, when you get there and even more about "who" is going to drive back home when you are finished.
