Begin with pickup at your Auckland hotel or cruise ship terminal, then travel to a series of popular city sights with a local driver/guide. Learn about the history of Auckland along the way to the Auckland Harbour Bridge, then explore Devonport, a scenic suburb with views across the water to downtown Auckland.
Stop by North Head, a headland formed by the volcano Maungauika, and visit One Tree Hill, a second volcanic peak which looks out at both of Auckland’s harbors. Maori people call this hill Maungakiekie, or ‘mountain of the kiekie vine,’ and it was home to an important fortification prior to the arrival of Europeans.
Soak up the hip, bustling atmosphere on Ponsonby Road, which is home to some of the city’s best bars, restaurants, and shops, then continue on a route through central Auckland that can be customized to your interests. This tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel or cruise ship.
