Auckland City Highlights Tour

Parnell, Auckland

Start your coach tour with a short trip over the Harbour Bridge to the North Shore, where you will have great panoramic views of Auckland’s city skyline. Then, return to the city center to visit famed Queen Street – home to lovely heritage architecture – and on to the picturesque Viaduct Harbour.

Next, travel through Auckland Domain, the city’s oldest park, which sits upon an ancient volcano. Stop in the quaint village of Parnell and to have a cup of coffee if you wish (own expense) or take a stroll around the historic buildings, many of which have been transformed into fashionable boutiques, antique stores and specialty shops.

Your tour concludes with a drive along the scenic waterfront route of Tamaki Drive to the Michael Joseph Savage Memorial Park, in Mission Bay. The park offers panoramic views over Whenua Rangatira, Auckland and Waitemata Harbour – it’s a fabulous stop to take photos.

During your tour, listen to your driver’s commentary to learn all about the sights you see!

Fabulous three hour tour, our guide Damian had extensive knowledge and was most helpful with our questions.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

The tour was great. We had Damion as our tour guide and he was friendly and very informative about the different places we visited.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2014

Our tour driver, Ron, was a real character full of humour and certainly not politically correct but that’s what made him interesting. As he took us around the different parts of Auckland we learnt more about the city, some history, and were certainly entertained.
