Private Day Trips from Auckland

Quote & Book

There’s so much to see and do in Auckland, whether you’re a local or just visiting for a limited time. Alpha Shuttles has taken hundreds of individuals and groups on private day tours of Auckland, so it’s fair to say that we know all the best spots-and the quickest routes too!

So what are some Auckland sights we’d recommend? We love the picturesque harbourside suburb of Devonport. With two volcanoes, countless restaurants and cafes and a rich naval history, you can easily spend hours here relaxing, learning and exploring. Another great choice is to visit Cornwall Park. The 172-hectare park surrounding One Tree Hill is a great spot for picnics and BBQs with breath-taking views of Auckland.

If you'd like to take a private day tour of Auckland's hot spots or even venture out of town for the day, Alpha Shuttles can accommodate your custom itinerary.
