so well run thankyou viator also our driver was excellent keep up the good work :
Tour guide was excellent. A very enjoyable day. Would highly recommend it.
Great tour and bus driver he went out of his way to show us around. Highly recommended
Driver very Knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor. He spoke English clearly and we could understand him.We got to see the highlights and since this was our last tour we did not want to do a lot of walking. Very good suggestions of things to do in the area if we had extra time.
Great tour. Driver was very nice and the combination of bus, boat and sky Tower was perfect.
Very through as the bus then the cruise. The sky tower was awesome.
Would highly recommend. The bus driver very informative and good.
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.
Very interesting. Loved Sky Tower incredible views and great fun watching the jumpers off the 53rd floor.
A bit of waiting for the bus and other passengers, but that is to be expected for this type of tour. Nice spots visited, excellent driver/guide.
Enjoyed the day but the boats and schedules were not well explained. On some stops the return boats are few and very far between shortening what can be done. The biggest problem is that the boats going to different stops are not the same necessitating a return all the way back to the beginning to go to the next place. This needs to be better explained with selling this venue.
This is a tour that I would have have highly recommend except for the few details that I will mention later. The city tour had a lot to offer and see. Our driver was one of the nicest guys you could meet. He was very friendly and knowledgable. Some of the stops were a bit rushed, but that is to be expecting on a tour such as this that has so much to see. It seem as if every turn down every street would bring you to the end, and then there was more to see and hear about.
The trip to the Sky Tower was very nice, offering the chance to see everything from high above the ground. My husband and I have done this sort of high-rise sightseeing in many world cities, so to some who have done the same, this may seem like looking down on yet another big city, but for those who don't get the chance to travel as often, it is amazing to see the massive city.
The habor cruise was okay but not great. The speaker system was very difficult to hear unless you are seated inside of the boat, and who wants to do that when you are planning to take pictures and feel the breeze on your face. The stops that we made were very rushed - 10 minutes at best to make your way to shore and get back onto the boat. Because of this is the lower rating then highly recommended.
This experience would have been much better if we would have had a ride for all of it. Gray Lines did pick us up at our hotel and took us on the City Sightseeing Tour. When we were dropped off we were told to be at a certain spot after our Harbor Cruise and someone would pick us up. We went on the cruise and came to the designated spot along with another couple who were also waiting for this ride. No one came. The other couple left after about fifteen minutes. We stayed until the half hour and then we walked to the Sky Tower. Whoever was supposed to meet us there and get us back to the hotel never materialized so we walked back. We were capable of walking the hills of Auckland, but if a person was not able to do this, they would have had to pay for a taxi to get them back. Not 5 stars for that reason.
