This was indeed a "great" day. We enjoyed everything on the list. we had a very comfortable bus, and the attractions were worth the price of the ticket.

A good trip if you're spending just a day or two in Auckland and would like to cover a lot of things in a short time.

It was a quick way to get an overview of the city but nothing was really exciting or a must see. I would recommend it only if your time in Auckland is limited.

It's a fair enough tour... If you have never been to Auckland this is worth the time

I am not a fan of buss tours but as those things go our driver was interesting and enjoyable. We did see. A lot of the city giving us a chance to pick out what would be valuable for a return on our own.

I booked this tour to take with two friends arriving from Buffalo on the same morning. Pick-up was late and then delayed because of a mix up with passenger numbers.
Driver was very plemgy and it was not pleasant to hear him clearing his throat and heavy breathing through the mike

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of background information about the sites. It was a wonderful way to see the highlights of Auckland! Unfortunately the guide did not speak Spanish and we ordered one.

Was just an ordinary sightseeing. My rating 3 stars not more.

There's really nothing much to see. Things might have been better had we gotten different guide. Of all the Viator tours we took on this trip, this was by far the worst.

Excluding the weather conditions, the areas covered in the tour were really good however the main issue here was the driver/tourist guide himself. Whilst he was very knowledgeable he obviously was suffering from a head cold which meant he kept sniffling into the microphone. Unfortunately the condition of his attire and overall looks weren't great. He kept using "cockney slang" throughout the tour which would have been an issue for those passengers from Mexico and Miami. In fact we didn't think it was necessary to keep using this slang throughout the entire tour. Being a visitor to Auckland, the last thing we expected was hearing this style of commentary. In his defence, maybe he had been called in late to take the tour around. Once again leaving the weather out of it, the areas covered in the tour were really good. Thanks

It was very hard to understand what he was saying with the accent. We also couldn't figure out the locations of the things he was talking about. We were pass the building before we could find it ! Disappointed in this tour !! Would not recommend. Should of done hop on and off bus instead !

The tour guide was informative but we didn't see anything we couldn't have seen by ourselves..

The bus tour was more like shuttle bus service for carrying passengers to their respective destinations than a "City Highlights" tour.

I have been impressed with most viator tours, but this tour guide was very difficult to understand and he went off on tangents and gave some unimportant facts...the tour was only 3 hours and alot of his commentary was inconsequential....would recommend the tour, but make sure the driver and guide is understandable.....

Disappointing tour. Streets were blocked for a local triathalon. Tour operator should have known this and advised as I only booked two days prior so missed out on key waterfront component. A/C in bus did not work properly. Sites at which we stopped were mediocre at best. Hop on hop off is better bang for buck.
