We only had a day in Auckland and decided to do the tour to enable us to see the highlights of Auckland city. So glad we did this. A brilliant way to spend 3 hours with great stops of the main attractions to enable toilet stops and photo opportunities. Paul was a great tour guide who was a wealth of knowledge and made our tour complete. Definitely a must do...5 ?

We had an evening flight out of Auckland but had to disembark our ship in the morning. We decided to see some of Auckland and this tour fit the bill. Paul was able to pick us up at the pier, store our luggage and drop us off where Taxies were easily accessible, even going so far as to hail one for us. Paul took us to some lovely spots and was quite knowledgeable about the sites we were seeing. Extremely personable!
