Tour description provided by Viator

Go sightseeing and wine tasting when your cruise ship is docked in Auckland, and fall in love with the ‘City of Sails’. Explore the city center and yacht-filled harbors on this full-day Auckland shore excursion, then cruise by ferry across the Hauraki Gulf to spend a relaxed afternoon visiting three vineyards on Waiheke Island.

When your ship is in port in Auckland, take the opportunity to explore the city and taste some of New Zealand’s award-winning wines.

Your tour begins with a morning sightseeing tour of Auckland’s most famous sights, including Quay Street, the Harbour Bridge and Waitemata Harbour, Queen Street, Auckland University and Auckland Museum, Dominion Parks and Gardens, the Tamaki Waterfront and the Auckland Viaduct Harbour. You’ll see how Auckland lies on two island-dotted harbors and is surrounded by the dormant cones of 49 volcanoes.

After lunch (own expense) in the Auckland Viaduct Harbour area, catch a local Fullers Ferry across beautiful Hauraki Gulf to the holiday isle of Waiheke Island. After your scenic 40-minute cruise, you’ll be met by your guide and enjoy escorted visits to three of the island’s celebrated vineyards: Mudbrick Vineyard, the Goldie Room and Te Whau Vineyard.

Enjoy tastings of the vineyards’ premium wines, and take in picturesque views of the Hauraki Gulf and Coromandel Peninsula before returning to Auckland’s waterfront by ferry.
