The Basics

There are a variety of ways to experience the Sky Tower, whether you want to enjoy panoramic views of Waitemata Harbour, Waiheke Island, and Auckland from the Sky Deck; grab a drink at the Sky Lounge Café; dine at the gourmet Sugar Club; or grab a bite at the more casual Orbit Revolving Restaurant.

Visit the tower on a hop-on, hop-off bus tour to see the attraction at your own pace, or see it on an Auckland city highlights tour to also catch other top sights such as Queen Street, the Auckland Domain, and Rangitoto Island. It’s also possible to admire the tower from afar during a scenic harbor cruise or soar overhead on a helicopter or seaplane flight.

Don't miss it.
Just do it. Go to the top have lunch or dinner if you can. For us it was certainly a highlight of our brief visit to Aukland.

We went later in the evening so no need for skip the line. The tower is cool and worth the trip - recommend going day and night with the ticket if you can.

It was fun I can say I’ve seen it it’s not as tall as the CN Tower which I’ve been to so height wise it wasn’t that impressive but it’s still fun to see

The city tour was very good, the harbor cruise was scenic but covered everything on city tour. The snacks were expensive so bring your own! The description of tour said light snack but none were provided. The sky tower was exciting and breath taking views.

Auckland Shore Excursion: City Sightseeing Tour, Harbor Cruise and Sky Tower
Great way to see the highlights of Auckland by coach plus a great informative harbor cruise. The Sky Tower was fantastic with 360 degree views of Auckland. This tour was well organised, great communication before our ship arrived and everything went to plan. Highly recommend this tour!

Auckland Shore Excursion: City Sightseeing Tour, Harbor Cruise and Sky Tower
We had a great driver, guide who was friendly and informative. The day was wet and cool. Unexpected for summer in N Z but you can't change the weather. Loved the Sky Tower experience. Had a great ice cream at the top. Unfortunately was not able to do the Harbour Cruise as there was not enough time due to our cruise ship leaving early. I presume we will get a refund for that part of our excursion. Very interesting to get the indigenous perspective from our driver,guide.

Bus picked us up a bit late which made us worry that maybe we were waiting in the wrong place. We loved the tour especially the boat part as we had beautiful views of the city and bridge.

When to Get There

The tower is open year-round but can get crowded in peak season; opt for an early morning visit to avoid crowds. For budding photographers wanting to capture the views, the most flattering lighting usually occurs just before sunset or at night, when Auckland’s city lights spark to life. The tower also forms the centerpiece of city celebrations such as New Year’s Eve and the Chinese New Year, when fireworks are set off from the top and the tower’s facade is illuminated with festive colors.
