Very comprehensive three hour tour in a comfortable coach. Covered the main sights of the greater Auckland area, with two photo stops and a longer break in the quaint suburb of Parnell. Kevin’s commentary was excellent- covering both history of the city and details of modern Auckland life.
Highly recommended.

Kevin was entertaining, knowledgeable and very friendly. A great tour. I only had a half day to get a feel for Auckland and I am delighted I chose this tour. Highly recommended.

For first time travelers to Auckland, this tour is a must! This tour highlights the City of Sails' scenic places. Our favorite is the short hike to Mt Eden Volcano's Summit. Our first time to be up close to an actual crater. It also shows 360-degree view of Auckland.

My sister and I had a great time on our city tour of Auckland. Our cruise ship did not get us to our hotel in time for our morning tour but they switched it to the afternoon. Our driver, Sandy, was so informative. She is of Marori descent and gave us a great perspective of the history of Auckland and New Zealand. I had read a review of this tour before I left home and it was with the actual tour guide that I had read about. How lucky for us!
