Tour description provided by Viator

Take in all the highlights of Auckland on a half-day city tour. See the yachts bobbing in the harbor, heritage listed buildings and parkland that offer stunning panoramic views over the city. Enjoy morning tea at the quaint village of Parnell, travel through Auckland Domain and cross the Harbor Bridge to the north shore. The city tour starts in the morning, leaving the afternoon free to relax or to combine with other great attractions. Choose from wine tasting, lunch on the Pride of Auckland yacht, museum and cultural performances, and much more!

The tour begins with a short trip over the Harbour Bridge to the North Shore before returning to the central city to visit Queen Street and the Auckland Viaduct.

Next we travel through the city’s oldest park, the Auckland Domain, which is situated on an ancient volcano. Stop in the quaint village of Parnell for morning tea stop and wander around the historic buildings many of which have been transformed into fashionable boutiques, antique, craft and specialty shops.

End your tour by taking the scenic waterfront route of Tamaki Drive to the Michael Joseph Savage Memorial Park, in Mission Bay. Here you will see a memorial to the first Labour Prime Minister of New Zealand and the founder of the welfare state. The park has panoramic views over Whenua Rangatira, Auckland city and Waitemata Harbour and is great for photo opportunities.
