Auckland Shore Excursion: Small-Group Auckland City Tour

Auckland Shore Excursion: Small-Group Auckland City Tour

Explore the history and sights when you’re in port in Auckland, and experience daily life in this laid-back harbor city.

Traveling by air-conditioned mini-coach, led by a local guide, this small-group Auckland tour begins with a trip along Queen Street in the central business district. Passing Auckland University and the Domain inner-city park, the tour continues through the attractive suburb of Ponsonby, with its grand Victorian buildings.

Cross the Harbour Bridge to Auckland’s North Shore, then stretch your legs on Narrow Neck Beach in the town of Devonport, with fabulous views of Rangitoto Island’s extinct volcanic cone. There’s time for a coffee (own expense) in either Devonport or Takapuna before the tour continues to the summit of Mt Victoria, for panoramic views over Auckland.

Returning across the Harbour Bridge, admire one of the Southern Hemisphere’s largest marinas at Westhaven. You’ll also see local fresh seafood for sale on a visit to the Auckland Fish Market, before ending the tour at Viaduct Harbour, part of Auckland’s lively waterfront precinct.

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.

The driver/guide for the Auckland City Tour was the best we had out of the eight days of Land Excursions we took while cruising around New Zealand. The driver/guide was very knowledgeable, courteous, and efficient. I wish the cuise lines hired Viator and your guides for all of their Land Excursions!!

With only 1 day in Auckland this tour gave us a fantastic overview of the city, seeing highlights such as Devonport and Mt Victoria lookout stress-free. Our guide David, shared his local knowledge well. Pick up and drop off at our cruise ship made it vey convenient. We still had time to explore city around ship.

Our tour guide was a lady. We found her very informative and friendly. She didn't rush us and we were able to see the sights at a unrushed pace. Also had ample toilet stops.
