What You Can Expect

Auckland Shore Excursion: Small-Group Auckland City Tour

Auckland Shore Excursion: Small-Group Auckland City Tour

When your cruise ship pulls into port, set out on a small-group shore excursion in Auckland, dubbed the ‘City of Sails.’ 

Start your 3-hour sightseeing tour with port pickup by mini-coach. Your guide provides informative commentary on notable landmarks, starting with a drive along Queen Street in the Central Business District (CBD). View Auckland University and the 185-acre (75-hectare) Auckland Domain, Auckland's oldest park, before your tour continues past lovely Victorian structures in the nearby suburb of Ponsonby.

Crossing the Harbour Bridge, your guide delivers you to the North Shore. Upon reaching the town of Devonport, get out to stroll Narrow Neck Beach, which boasts views of the extinct volcanic cone of Rangitoto Island. Enjoy a bit of free time in Devonport or Takapuna before driving to the top of Mt Victoria for sweeping views over Auckland.

Returning across the Harbour Bridge, discover the Westhaven marina and visit the Auckland Fish Market for a glimpse of local fishmongers selling fresh seafood. Finish your tour at the lively waterfront of Viaduct Harbour before drop-off at the cruise port.

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.

Our Auckland small group tour was amazing. This tour gave you a fabulous overview of the city while in port. Our tour guide really made the trip he was extremely knowledgeable and made sure to answer all questions. We made alot of stops for pictures and time to get out of the van and stretch your legs. We would highly recommend this tour.
