Enjoy the company of a small, personalized group, allowing you to stop often for stunning photos and to access the best vantage spots that larger buses can't reach.

There are plenty of opportunities to capture amazing photos that you will treasure for a lifetime. The tour stops at the major highlights of the city, including Auckland Harbor Bridge, Devonport and North Head (Maungauika), Auckland Waterfront and Viaduct, Bastion Point, Mission Bay, Tamaki Drive and Achilles Point, and the Historic Mount Eden. Check out the amazing gannet colony at Muriwai Beach, the fabulous Auckland Domain, Museum, and Wintergardens, Parnell, the 1857 historic Riverhead Tavern, as well as the War Memorial, Wynyard Quarter, and the Viaduct Harbor. Your fun and friendly tour guide will offer commentary on the breathtaking scenery and take you out of the concrete jungle and into the stunning landscapes that surround the city. When the tour ends in the afternoon, you'll leave Auckland with a day you'll never forget.

What a fantastic experience. Pick up was punctual at 8.10am. David our tour guide and driver was very welcoming. Our 8 hour tour gave us a very comprehensive overview of Auckland city and it’s surrounds. We covered approximately 200klm so we certainly got to see and learn so much about the area. David’s local knowledge was excellent and delivered with humour
