There are plenty of Auckland day trips to be had offering to whisk you around the sights of New Zealand’s largest city delivering experiences which range from the decidedly mediocre to the positively magnificent. However, there are some of us searching for something which delivers something beyond that ……..seeking companies which take us to the absolute pinnacles of memorable travel moments.
If this sounds like you and the type of tour experience you’re after we may have just the answer and indeed the company to suit your requirements – TIME Unlimited Tours.
This exceptional company doesn’t blow its own trumpet – it doesn’t need to. What speaks volumes instead are the contents of TIME Unlimited Tours’ trophy cabinet – a cabinet crammed with travel industry awards which demonstrate for all to see a personal ethos focusing on quality, integrity and environmental sustainability. As one of the most awarded tourism businesses in the whole of the country, TIME Unlimited Tours regularly scoops awards not just in the domestic market but also in the international one, as their Worldwide Indigenous Tourism and Biodiversity Award 2010 proves.
According to TIME Unlimited Tours most of their success is based mainly on referrals from travellers and what better endorsement can there be than the thrilled reviews of those who have been there before you.
First up in the why-pick-this-company list is the fact that TIME Unlimited Tours offers New Zealand’s most extensive range of high quality guided, distinctive and luxury tours covering Auckland and beyond. Factor in the small but all-important detail that fun is an essential component of any experience with TIME Unlimited Tours and that their attention to detail is second-to-none and you may be starting to understand what makes them stand out. But there’s much, much more.
Nobody likes to feel they are just making up the numbers or that they are just one more client on an endless conveyor belt of tourists. TIME Unlimited Tours place great emphasis on delivering a very personal service which enhances every aspect of their tours leaving you feeling, well…..special. And we all need that don’t we?
Ask the majority of visitors to New Zealand what features on their must-do list and you would get enough answers to fill a book. However, there is often one common thread for all – Maori cultural discovery. And this is perhaps where TIME Unlimited Tours shine their beacon the brightest not just because Maori experiences are integrated into many of their tours but because of privileged access to and knowledge of this culture in the most organic way possible.
The TIME Unlimited Tour company is led by husband and wife team Néill and Ceillhe Sperath.
If you are thinking these names suggest Irish descent you’d be right – Néill is of Irish and German lineage while on her paternal side Ceillhe also claims Irish heritage. However, Ceillhe’s full name is Ceillhe Tewhare Teneti Hema. Her maternal lineage traces back in a direct line to Patuone and Tamati Waka Nene – two prominent Ngapuhi tribe Maori chiefs who were among the main signatories on New Zealand’s founding document of 1840 – the Treaty of Waitangi.
Ceillhe is understandably proud and passionate about her indigenous roots and her willingness to share this with her guests in the most authentic way possible is one of the main reasons TIME Unlimited Tours stands so far apart from other companies.
We’ll understand if we have already lost you at this point and you’ve rushed off to book your tour but if you’re still reading there is even more to tell; this time with regard to the company’s ethos where environmental issues are concerned and encompassing biodiversity, conservation and sustainability.
The company’s policies and initiatives in this area are so extensive we couldn’t hope to cover them all here. Suffice it to say TIME Unlimited Tours stands at the forefront of ‘developing and implementing worthwhile conservation and forward-thinking programmes’. These provide positive benefits to the economy and biodiversity while working in direct line with Tourism New Zealand’s ‘100% Pure New Zealand’ marketing campaign. All of this adds up to a company that truly cares earning it a finalist place in the 2011 EcoTrophea – Worldwide Eco-Tourism Award.
For you, all of this means you can enjoy your tour knowing you are contributing directly to a significantly eco-friendly focused ethos of exceptional integrity.

TIME Unlimited Tours have a wide range of choices on their menu in the categories of ‘Auckland Tours and Guided Walks’, ‘Auckland Maori Tours’, ‘Private Luxury Tours’ and ‘Shore Excursions and Other Tours’. Having plenty to pick from is guaranteed – narrowing down your options may prove a little trickier.
We’re pretty sure that by now you’ll be as convinced as we are that TIME Unlimited Tours are not just any Auckland day trips, they offer something not just exceptional but sublime. However, as is so often the case in life once we have tasted the ultimate, nothing will ever again seem good enough – you’ve been warned!
