Tour description provided by Viator

See the best of Auckland on a half-day sightseeing coach tour that showcases the city’s highlights, from heritage -listed buildings to the stunning Viaduct Harbour to great views. This 3-hour tour allows you to choose either a morning or afternoon departure and is the perfect choice if you are short on time.

Start your coach tour with a short trip over the Harbour Bridge to the North Shore, where you will have great panoramic views of Auckland’s city skyline. Then, return to the city center to visit famed Queen Street – home to lovely heritage architecture – and on to the picturesque Viaduct Harbour.

Next, travel through Auckland Domain, the city’s oldest park, which sits upon an ancient volcano. Stop in the quaint village of Parnell and to have a cup of coffee if you wish (own expense) or take a stroll around the historic buildings, many of which have been transformed into fashionable boutiques, antique stores and specialty shops.

Your tour concludes with a drive along the scenic waterfront route of Tamaki Drive to the Michael Joseph Savage Memorial Park, in Mission Bay. The park offers panoramic views over Whenua Rangatira, Auckland and Waitemata Harbour – it’s a fabulous stop to take photos.

During your tour, listen to your driver’s commentary to learn all about the sights you see!
