Discover Auckland's history, culture and scenic highlights with this afternoon Auckland sightseeing tour.
Travel through the city centre, past iconic Karangahape Road and the stylish suburb of Ponsonby, and over the Auckland Harbour Bridge, enjoying views of the Hauraki Gulf and city skyline. Visit the Viaduct Harbour, home to America's Cup racing for many years, and the central city's main road Queen Street, before continuing to the Auckland Domain.
Developed around an extinct volcano, the Domain features 75 hectares of open spaces, tropical gardens, duck ponds and public art, and is home to the Auckland War Memorial Museum. The tour continues to historic Parnell Village, where you can explore this boutique shopping area during an afternoon tea stop.
Next, travel the stunning waterfront route of Tamaki Drive to Michael Joseph Savage Memorial Park, above Mission Bay. Named after one of New Zealand's greatest and most popular Prime Ministers, the park, with its formal gardens and tranquil atmosphere, offers a panoramic outlook over the picturesque Eastern Bays, Auckland city and the Waitemata Harbour.
Your afternoon tour of Auckland finishes downtown after a drive back along the waterfront.

Comments : We would like to compliment the team at GreatSights on a wonderful tour in Auckland. We were welcomed so enthusiastically and our tour leader, Barry, was outstanding and entertained as well as informed us the whole day. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment. The organization of the tour was outstanding and everywhere we visited was particularly exciting. As a family with children it provided an excellent array of things to do and see.
