Auckland well known as the "City of Sails" is located on a narrow stretch of land rich in Maori and European history. It is the gateway to exploring New Zealand. Nestled between two harbours and 49 volcanic cones, this cosmopolitan city hosts an array of activities, eateries and stunning landscapes
Located between the western and eastern coastal shorelines at the narrowest point. From the eye-catching black sand of the west coast to the spectacular golden sand beaches of the east and to the lush farmland that surrounds the outer edges, you will enjoy exploring this vast playground
Experience the 'City of Sails' the Gray Line way on this full-day tour. Travel through Auckland's trendy inner suburbs, over the Harbour Bridge and back through vibrant Viaduct Harbour and Wynyard Quarter, our newest waterfront area and urban community. Feel the bustling CBD area of Queen Street, the hub of the city centre, and the peace and quiet of the Auckland Domain.
Stop for morning tea (own expense) in chic Parnell Village, a historic suburb with boutique shops and galleries, and continue along the waterfront. Enjoy panoramic views across the city and its harbour from Michael Joseph Savage Memorial Park atop Bastion Point before returning to the ferry terminal downtown.
Next, set off to explore Auckland by sea on a harbour cruise. Relax as you take in the tranquil islands that make up the Hauraki Gulf. Cruise under the Harbour Bridge and past Devonport’s historic Naval Base, and enjoy afternoon tea as you gaze upon Rangitoto Island. A free return Devonport ticket is included in your tour and can be used whenever you like!
Lastly, see Auckland from on high with a trip up the Auckland Sky Tower. Travel up this 328-metre icon in glass-fronted lifts, which open up to unparalleled views all over the city from the viewing deck.
