Auckland Day Tours

As New Zealand’s biggest city, Auckland offers a huge variety of sightseeing tours and activities thanks to its spectacular location. The city straddles an isthmus between two harbours, with 48 volcanic cones scattered across its skyline. Visitors can choose from a range of Auckland sightseeing tours all within a short distance of the central city. Our Auckland City Tour is a great way to explore the city and orientate yourself.

Auckland city boasts some of New Zealand’s best restaurants – from fine dining to a wide range of ethnic eateries, there is something for every budget. Or shop till you drop on Queen Street, browse designer offerings in the new Britomart precinct and take a trip to the historic village of Parnell for boutique buys in fashion, art and homewares. New Zealand’s Māori heritage is celebrated at the Auckland War Memorial Museum located in the city’s oldest park. You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to views of the city too – the Auckland Sky Tower offers a 360 degree panorama from its SkyDeck, 220 metres above the city.

Outside the city, visit Auckland’s natural attractions – take a sightseeing tour to the windswept black sand beaches and lush native bush of the West Coast just 45 minutes from Auckland city, or get up close with the diverse local marine life at the famous Sea Life Kelly Tarlton’s Aquarium, just five minutes from downtown. Cruise the sparkling Waitemata Harbour and enjoy views of the Harbour Bridge and the iconic volcanic cone of Rangitotom, or take a Waiheke Island tour and experience one of New Zealand’s leading wine regions, just a short ferry ride from downtown Auckland.
