  • Amazing Experience

  • Very good :

  • Terrible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not worth it!!! To much wasted time and not enough photo opportunities.

  • Great tour. Enjoyed the history provided by the guide.

  • The pick up place is not well marked if you come off a cruise ship. We had to guess where to find it and guessed right. You are picked up by one bus and taken to another. This wastes some time, which, if you are on a cruise ship, is frustrating. We had to wait about an hour between when the bus left us off and when the harbor cruise started. The harbor cruise is the highlight of this adventure. Then we had to wait for another bus after the harbor cruise--again not well defined as to where to get the bus--to take us to the Sky Tower. The narrative was good with regard to the harbor. The harbor cruise commentator kept a constant dialogue on what we were seeing.

  • Good overview of the city. The tour really gives you a great overview of the city... Land overview by bus and then a bay overview by boat and then a sky overview from the Sky Tower. Note that lunch is not included so bring a snack.

  • A very good trip which gave us a good idea of what the city of Auckland had to offer. The coach tour was nothing spectacular but did give us an opportunity to get a feel for the city centre. The cruise was particularly enjoyable and we were given lots of information whilst on board. There was some confusion when it came to moving from the cruise to the sky tower but everything was soon sorted out. The sky tower is worth visiting with some stunning views over the whole area. Overall a good day and one that I would recommend with perhaps one or two improvements particularly with regard to the coach tour.

  • Our tour started off wet and cloudy but by the end it cleared up. Bus and Harbour cruise was great.

  • The city highlights tour was great and the bus driver was excellent and informative. The harbour cruise was very good but the commentator could not be heard very well on the outside decks. Otherwise excellent.

  • Good tour except could not see anything from the Sky Tower because of cloud cover. Should let people know when there is no visibility.
