Auckland City Small Group Morning Discovery Tour

1. Auckland City Small Group Morning Discovery Tour

Experience the best sights of Auckland City on a small group city tour. The morning tour is a journey of discovery designed to explore the history and sights, plus see how Aucklanders live and play. After pick up from your central Auckland hotel, travel up Queen Street through Auckland’s central business district, past Auckland University, and through the inner city park 'The Domain'. Auckland is set on over fifty dormant volcanic cones and between two harbours, the sparkling Waitemata and the brooding Manukau. Continue on through the picturesque suburb of Ponsonby, known for its historic buildings, before heading over the Harbour Bridge to the North Shore. Here you can stroll on a beautiful beach with views out across the Waitemata Harbour to Rangitoto Island and where there is time for a coffee.  After a short drive through historic Devonport, continue up to the summit of Mount Victoria for stunning panoramic views of Auckland City and historic Devonport. Mount Victoria is Devonport's very own dormant volcano. Then, travel back over the Harbour Bridge to view Westhaven Marina, one of the largest marinas in the Southern Hemisphere.

we only spent one day in auckland and do not regret having participated in this tour which allowed us to discover several neighborhoods in a few hours. several stops to take photos and even time to have a coffee on the beach. our guide was very nice and very interesting!

The guide picked us up at our hotel on time. He was pleasant to chat with as he picked up the remaining individuals for our tour. We enjoyed the small group approach to the tour. We stopped several times, allowing us a chance to walk around and enjoy the sites.

Excellent relaxed tour in a comfortable mini bus. Added Value from Alex the tour guide. He made us feel very welcome, was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. Great Value. Would highly recommend. 5*

Our driver was knowledgeable and personable. We enjoyed the 3 hour tour and saw much more of Auckland than we could have on our own.
