With limited time to experience Auckland, this tour focuses on the highlights and it’s an ideal introduction to the city for first-time visitors. Enjoy views from Auckland Harbour Bridge and North Head, learn about the Maori legends of One Tree Hill, visit the seafront suburb of Devonport, and receive tips on where to eat and drink along atmospheric Ponsonby Road.
What to Expect
After pickup from your hotel or cruise port, set out to discover Auckland by air-conditioned minibus, starting with a drive across the famous Auckland Harbour Bridge. Continue along the coast to Devonport, a seafront village with views across the water to Auckland.
Make a stop at North Head to take photos, before arriving at One Tree Hill, where you’ll have chance to learn more about Auckland’s Maori heritage. As you head into downtown Auckland, spot the landmark Sky Tower on the horizon and jump out to walk along Ponsonby Road, one of the city’s busiest streets. If you are staying in the city, your guide will be able to recommend some great places to eat or drink in the area.
Your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel or cruise port.
