For those with limited time in Auckland, this express tour is the ideal choice, taking in sights that you wouldn’t be able to reach on foot and cramming as much as possible into just three hours. Take in the views from Mount Eden and Bastion Point, explore the lively Parnell neighborhood, learn about Auckland’s Maori heritage at One Tree Hill, and see famous landmarks like the Auckland Harbour Bridge and the Sky Tower.
What to Expect
After pickup from your hotel or cruise port (morning tour only), set out to discover Auckland by air-conditioned minibus, starting with the dramatic view from Bastion point. Admire the grand mansions along Paratai Drive as you loop around the coast, then jump out to visit One Tree Hill, a site significant to Auckland’s Maori population.

Continue to another famous viewpoint, the sacred peak of Mount Eden, and enjoy a short hike to the summit for an incredible view. Back in the city, explore the affluent neighborhood of Parnell Village, where highlights include the Auckland Domain, the Auckland War Memorial Museum, and the Holy Trinity Church.

End your tour by driving over the Auckland Harbour Bridge, with views across Waitemata Harbour, before being dropped off in central Auckland.
