Very relaxing.
Overall Tour Rating

Great commentary, smooth ride, educational. The only unfortunate aspect was the weather, but it did fine up towards the end of the cruise. I'd recommend to anyone visiting Auckland.

Overall Tour Rating

I enjoyed seeing a lot in a relaxed but relatively moderate time. Great if you don't want to tour all day, but get an idea of the area. I really enjoyed the free ferry offer from Davenport to Russell then back to Auckland. Very nice.
Overall Tour Rating

The commentary was great, we learned a lot being Aucklanderers. The crew members were very friendly and helpful, but the stop in Rangitoto Island was way too short, we only just managed to get off the boat, and walked to the entrance, then had to walked back straight away. I think at least half an hour stop would be better.

13 of us took this tour, at least the weather was good and the scenery was nice to look at. The commentary was low and very difficlut to understand We were very dissapointed.
Overall Tour Rating

Really enjoyed being on the harbour, the stopover at Rangitoto was short but suited what I was looking for (chance to explore as much as I could in the short time I had in Auckland). The tour includes a free return trip to Devonport, I wish I'd have known in advance that I could swap my voucher for my harbour cruise ticket the day before the cruise so I could have used the Devonport trip when I had some time earlier in the day. But overall really enjoyed it!
