What to Expect
Begin your tour with pickup from your central Auckland hotel. Traveling by air-conditioned minibus, set out to explore Viaduct Harbour and Waitemata Harbour, then cross over the Auckland Harbour Bridge to take in the views from Northcote Point.  Continue into downtown Auckland to soak up the atmosphere along Ponsonby Road and Karangahape Road—aka K Road—where your guide points out the best places to eat, drink, and shop later during your stay. Next up is a visit to the sacred peak of Mount Eden, which affords incredible views over the city.  Pass through Parnell Village, home to the Auckland Domain and Auckland Museum, before looping back to the coast and driving along the beautiful beaches of Mission Bay and St. Heliers. Make a final stop at Achilles Point, with views across the Hauraki Gulf, before being dropped back at your hotel.
