Overview

If you are newly arrived at a New Zealand airport or cruise ship terminal and have some time to spend while on a stop-over in Auckland, join us on this short Auckland explorer tour for a perfect introduction to our city.

We set off from the inner city and make our way down to the Waterfront and Viaduct District known as the hub of food and shopping. Driving along the waterfront, we take the Tamaki Drive on our way to Mission Bay, passing through Paratai Drive, the richest street in New Zealand filled with fantastic homes and harbourside views.

On reaching Mission Bay, we pause for a brief walk and photo opportunity as Auckland’s city skyline comes into full view as well Rangitoto Island just across the harbour.

Leaving Mission Bay, we head to the Auckland Domain through the upmarket suburbs of Remuera, Orake and Parnell renowned for their boutique shops and cafés. On reaching the Auckland Domain, we visit its relaxing winter gardens and fascinating museum, with an option to enjoy a break at the Wintergarden café to sample Auckland’s world-class coffees.

After a refreshing break at the Auckland Domain, we journey further inland on our way to One Tree Hill and Mount Eden – two of the city’s most recognizable landmarks and look out points. Standing on their summits, admire Auckland’s skyline and coastline from all sides and understand how its volcanic landscape and history made it one of the most liveable and delightful cities in the world.

Depending on your circumstances, the tour ends here and we can then drop you off at your desired location, or we can proceed to another Auckland city, tour or activity.

Extend your tour:

Take advantage of good weather to pack in more experiences into your day. From One Tree Hill and Mount Eden, you can point in any direction that grabs your fancy.

  • Piha and Bethell’s fascinating black sand beaches, Kumeu’s vineyards and fantastic eateries like Provenance and the Tasting Shed are to the west beyond the scenic bush through the hills.
  • Rural New Zealand to the south and east where bucolic farmlands, botanic gardens and the Manukau Heads Lighthouse await. There’s also Pokeno township’s celebrated ice cream, Kaiaua Bay’s fishing opportunities, and Hunua Falls regional park tour.
