Auckland Sightseeing Coach Tour | Discover Auckland & SkyTower

Experience the best of Auckland's city highlights with a half-day scenic tour, followed by a trip up the famous Auckland SkyTower.

Travel around the city centre and over the Auckland Harbour Bridge with its stunning views of the harbour and city skyline. Visit the Viaduct Harbour and Auckland's famous Queen Street, and enjoy the lush grounds of the Auckland Domain, the city's oldest park.

Pause for morning tea (own expense) in charming Parnell Village, a historic suburb which has been transformed into a unique boutique shopping experience. The tour continues along the waterfront to the Michael Joseph Savage Memorial Park, named after a much-respected Prime Ministers of New Zealand. With panoramic views of the harbour and beautiful formal gardens, it's a great spot to take photos.

After a scenic trip back along Tamaki Drive to the city, arrive at Auckland's Sky Tower, the tallest man-made structure in New Zealand at 328 metres high. Prepare yourself for breathtaking 360 degree views from the observation deck of this Auckland landmark. On a clear day you'll be able to gaze as far as 80 kilometres in all directions – it's the perfect way to get to know the city of Auckland and its surroundings.

Conclude your morning tour with a trip up the SkyTower, from where you can make your way home when you are ready.

Tour Reviews

Our driver and tour guide was very cheerful, funny and interesting. The route was good and actually helpful to gain your settings for later walks around the city. I would like to add the the seats of the minibus were a bit cramped considering most of the tourists onboard were retirees and not athletic types. Overall it was very good.
Overall Tour Rating

The pick up from Skycity was not the best. It was not clear that the location was at the rear of the hotel and only after phone calls from the hotel staff and a rush through the kitchen, we got there 15 minutes late. At the end it did not matter as my wife and I were the only guests on that tour. The driver, a elderly gent from the continent, was very knowledgeable, but told us several times to ask questions if we want too, but he hardly gave time to do so. All in all, great tip, value for money.
