Continue along the coast, stopping at black sand beaches and scenic lookouts, then return to the city via the Tamaki Drive, with stunning views over Waitemata Harbour. After lunch at a local restaurant, end the day watching a captivating Maori culture performance at the Auckland Museum, including the renowned Haka war dance.
Your tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel.
