Spend your morning on a luxury coach tour for a scenic overview of New Zealand's largest and most vibrant city, Auckland. Your local driver guide will keep you entertained and informed throughout your three-hour tour with interesting commentary.
Departing from downtown Auckland, your tour takes you along Queen Street, the central city's main street. Many historic buildings dating back to the 1880s still remain, dotted amongst more modern high-rise buildings. You'll travel across Auckland’s famous Harbour Bridge, taking in expansive views of the Waitemata Harbour, boat marinas, and the city skyline. The city has 48 extinct volcanic sites, many of which can be seen throughout your tour.
Make a brief stop in Parnell Village, a popular shopping boutique shopping area, and travel along Tamaki Drive on the waterfront to the Michael Joseph Savage Memorial. This beautifully landscaped memorial park offers stunning views over the Waitemata Harbour and Hauraki Gulf as well as back to the city.
At the end of your tour, you will be dropped off at the Sky Tower in central Auckland. The 328-metre tall Sky Tower - the highest building in the Southern Hemisphere - offers a bird's eye view of Auckland City. Stop into the glass-fronted elevator for a smooth ride up to one of three viewing decks and experience commanding views across Auckland for up to 49 miles in every direction. Gaze out over the central city streets and rooftops, the Waitemata Harbour and the North Shore, the eastern suburbs and beaches, the Manukau Harbour to the south and the Waitakere Ranges to the west. A truly captivating experience!
Your ticket is open-ended so you can enjoy the views at your leisure - we recommend visiting the observation deck at the end of day, so you can watch as dusk falls and the city lights begin to twinkle.
