Get a personalized introduction to Auckland’s most important sights on a half-day tour for your group of up to 11 people. Make the most of your time in Auckland with a convenient trip that includes round-trip hotel transfer from centrally-located Auckland hotels.
  • 4-hour, private Auckland tour
  • See key Auckland sights with a local guide
  • Learn about Auckland history and culture
  • Travel in a van that seats up to 11 people
  • Choice of morning or afternoon departure
  • Round trip transfer from your hotel or cruise ship
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.

A wonderful sight seeing tour spent with the most friendly, responsible and knowledgeable tour guide David. He drove us from the South shore to the North shore of Auckland in his mini coach, pointing out many interesting attractions of the area the old houses, city high-rises, beaches and made stops for us to take pictures. We visited the Parnell Wintergardens and the One Tree Hill -must see because of a full view of Auckland on top of the hill. David told us the story of One Tree Hill as he drove down the hill. We loved the half-day spent with David. Before we headed to the airport, David made arrangement for a taxi to take us there. He greeted us by name and looked after us very well.

This was the most efficient way to see as much as we could in very limited time. We were picked up from the Skytower, after we jumped off and were shown around the city in a small van with six other guests. Nick was very friendly and was willing to get us back to our ship in time for safety drill. This is just a driving trip with several photo stops, except we were taken to a beautiful botanic gardens where we had time to wander among the beautiful flowers. A relaxing afternoon.

Extremely accommodating. Tour guide DAVE-EXCELLENT. We were picked up at hotel with our luggage and dropped off at cruise ship after 1/2 day wonderful tour. Dave was very responsible for our belongings in his vehicle. Orakei, Michael Joseph Savage Memorial Park, St. Heliers, Achilles Point, Remuera, One Tree Hill, Mt Victoria Reserve- all wonderful stops. Parnell Wintergardens -gorgeous. CAN YOU BELIEVE ALL THIS IN A 1/2 DAY TOUR!!!!

We took a small group tour and the vehicle and the windows were too small to be able to enjoy the sites. The 6 people in the 2 back seats had little or no view of the outside. It was not a vehicle suited for sightseeing unless you were in the front seat. There was a lot of driving around and the guide had little to say except to one of the passengers in the front. He had to skip the One Tree Hill stop because he couldn't find a place to park there. After much driving in cramped quarters our foursome and another couple opted to leave the tour early so as not to waste anymore of the day. A disappointing tour!!

Awesome tour, you see the entire city, learned the city's history and a few tales from a comfortable van. Our guide was flexible with our pick up and drop off, provided water, and offered us a stop to ice cream or coffee.

Had an amazing half-day Auckland tour with David Keene. Auckland is a really beautiful city and David was very knowledgeable and nice saw some amazing city views, bays, and other attractions. Must do while in Auckland full-day tour is also recommended if you have the time. The tour is in a small van so David took us to some places where it's impossible for the larger tour buses which makes the tour even more valuable. Highly recommended...

David is an excellent tour guide and we enjoyed our half day tour. Unfortunately our return flight was changed by the airline to an earlier time so we were unable to enjoy David's afternoon tour outside of Aukland which we would have preferred. But David squeezed in so much during our 4 hour morning tour that it was well worth the cost. We highly recommend David's tour. He also picked us up from the cruise line, took our luggage and drove us to the airport after the tour which was very convenient.
