TIME Unlimited Tours (where TIME stands for “To Integrate Maori Experiences”)
is one of the most iconic tourism businesses in New Zealand, having won many national in addition to now 3 worldwide tourism awards for their exceptional tours. The extensive range of Auckland Tours is the result of the passion of its Founders and Directors, Neill and Ceillhe Sperath, for the outstanding natural beauty, Maori culture and friendly people that Auckland and New Zealand have to offer. Our Auckland and New Zealand Tours are operated with the help of their hand-picked team of guides, driving luxury Mercedes vehicles to add to the comfort and enjoyment of their manuhiri (visitors).
Based in Auckland, New Zealand, TIME Unlimited Tours provides the most extensive range of high-quality Auckland Tours available, are very passionate about Tamaki Makaurau (Auckland) and Aotearoa (New Zealand), and wish to share its most amazing places with all their guests.

Ceillhe is a direct descendant of two prominent Maori chiefs that helped shape New Zealand. She has now excellent contacts with groups involved in this fascinating culture that is so much part of New Zealand and she also is our principal guide for TIME’s Auckland Maori Tours and Interactive Māori Culture Experiences.

TIME Unlimited Tours is committed to working toward Biodiversity and Sustainability in all aspects of their business, such as:

• Working toward sustainable practices
• Educating visitors on cultural heritage and protocols
Biodiversity conservation to ensure New Zealands fantastic environment and cultures are protected and enhanced.

Please click on the above links to check out their extensive policies and initiatives which serve to minimise the impact and maximise the benefits they bring to our amazing environment in the Auckland region, as well as the indigenous Maori communities and people they work with. Their aim is in every case to really make a positive difference to all those diverse environments and people.

TIME Unlimited Tours is very keen to support any biodiversity initiatives that teach both New Zealanders and visitors from around the world alike that we are at the forefront of developing and implementing worthwhile conservation and forward-thinking programmes. Such programmes are to benefit both New Zealands economy and biodiversity, since they are in line with Tourism New Zealand’s “100% Pure New Zealand” marketing campaign.

Fine examples of programmes they support are bush regeneration initiatives on the Maori meeting places (Marae) they work closely with locally, as well as assisting with their programmes to work with at-risk youth to reintegrate them to benefit both Maori and society in general. For every person they bring to the local Marae, they pay the Marae a generous “koha” (donation) to support the many worthwhile language and cultural programmes they implement.

TIME is very aware of the fact that in the long-term, the success of their Auckland Tours and Auckland Maori Tours depends very much on the attractiveness of the environment – both natural and social/cultural – that we live in. They intend to lead the way to actively promote programmes that ensure New Zealands region’s biodiversity is not just maintained but further enhanced.

Not just small groups and private tours! They also specialise in tours for Meetings, Events, Conventions and Incentive groups.

From Auckland tours, Maori Cultural Tours to specially tailored Private Touring experiences, the multi award winning tour company can also take care of all your large group requirements.
