What You Can Expect
Your Auckland shore excursion begins with a sightseeing tour of the city’s most famous sights, including Quay Street, the Harbour Bridge and Waitemata Harbour, Queen Street, Auckland University and Auckland Museum, Dominion Parks and Gardens, and the Tamaki Waterfront. You’ll see how Auckland lies on two island-dotted harbors and is surrounded by the dormant cones of 49 volcanoes.
Then view Auckland from the water on a 90-minute harbor cruise. Explore Waitemata Harbour, see the volcanic cone of Rangitoto Island, visit Devonport and see the Harbour Bridge and Westhaven Marina. On the return cruise to Auckland’s waterfront, enjoy tea or coffee and a muffin.
After docking at the waterfront, you’ll be transferred to the Sky Tower, Auckland’s iconic landmark. Soaring 1,075 feet (328 meters) into the sky, it’s the tallest freestanding structure in the Southern Hemisphere. Take in stunning views of Auckland’s buildings and harbors from the observation deck, and learn more about the city’s history by watching the interesting audiovisual displays.
You'll be escorted back to Auckland’s waterfront at approximately 4pm.

Excellent tour and excellent guide/bus driver. However, the tour was listed as a shore excursion, but the starting point was not clear to us. The paperwork said to meet at the Hilton Hotel, which we did, but that is not where the tour was. We finally found it, but it was a bit stressful.
We had the best time, the City Sightseeing Tour was great, the Harbour Ruise was fantastic the weather was lovely and hot, and the Sky Tower was something else. One great day.
