What to expect
  • When your cruise ship pulls into port, set out on a small-group shore excursion in Auckland, dubbed the ‘City of Sails.’  Start your 3-hour sightseeing tour with port pickup by mini-coach. Your guide provides informative commentary on notable landmarks, starting with a drive along Queen Street in the Central Business District (CBD). View Auckland University and the 185-acre (75-hectare) Auckland Domain, Auckland's oldest park, before your tour continues past lovely Victorian structures in the nearby suburb of Ponsonby. Crossing the Harbour Bridge, your guide delivers you to the North Shore. Upon reaching the town of Devonport, get out to stroll Narrow Neck Beach, which boasts views of the extinct volcanic cone of Rangitoto Island. Enjoy a bit of free time in Devonport or Takapuna before driving to the top of Mt Victoria for sweeping views over Auckland. Returning across the Harbour Bridge, discover the Westhaven marina and visit the Auckland Fish Market for a glimpse of local fishmongers selling fresh seafood. Finish your tour at the lively waterfront of Viaduct Harbour before drop-off at the cruise port. Worry-free Shore Excursion: We will ensure your timely return to the Auckland cruise port for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money will be refunded.

Made the best of a rainy day.....

Stefan was our tour guide, and from our first meeting with him, we knew it was going to be a great 1/2 day tour, for our 1st day in Auckland, and he didn't disappoint! It might have been rainy & blistery, but the sun shone, and Stefan's commentary kept us interested and entertained!

From the moment Wayne collected us from our hotel we knew that the tour was going to be fun. Lots of facts and information about Auckland, his home city, which you could tell he was passionate about! Delivered in an easy going and extremely amusing way. Lovely way to spend a morning - thanks Wayne!
