For first time travelers to Auckland, this tour is a must! This tour highlights the City of Sails' scenic places. Our favorite is the short hike to Mt Eden Volcano's Summit. Our first time to be up close to an actual crater. It also shows 360-degree view of Auckland.

My sister and I had a great time on our city tour of Auckland. Our cruise ship did not get us to our hotel in time for our morning tour but they switched it to the afternoon. Our driver, Sandy, was so informative. She is of Marori descent and gave us a great perspective of the history of Auckland and New Zealand. I had read a review of this tour before I left home and it was with the actual tour guide that I had read about. How lucky for us!

Our guide knew all the trivia as well as the normal history of everything! He was funny! It was a great way to see the city - especially since we got to get out by the bridge and take amazing photos of the city. It was particularly fun driving up through Parnell. I highly recommend this tour.

We booked this tour to give us a flavour of the city as we there for only a couple of days before travelling on. Our lovely, friendly, lady driver was Maori and gave us a great insight into her cultural background and history along with a lively and very interesting commentary on the sights we visited. She also dispensed hints and tips for food to try, places to eat and areas to explore more. We followed up quite a few over the next two days and she was never wrong. Although we were scheduled to be dropped back at our hotel, she kindly dropped us off at the Skytower instead. This delivered exactly what we wanted and was a great start to our New Zealand trip.

A short tour but a great way to see the highlights of Auckland City in a morning.

Great way to see the highlights of the city if one does not want to deal with hop on - hop off type of sightseeing. Very informative, never seemed to be rushed. Heavy afternoon traffic prevented us from an in-front-of-the-hotel drop off but a leisurely walk felt actually good after sitting on the bus for a few hours.
