Great tour of Auckland. The bus was good and clean, the driver was a 'character' and was friendly and knowledgable. We saw many different aspects of the city and it is worth the time.Reviewed by: Susan Kathleen D, April 2013
Short and insightful tour with a very knowledgeable guideReviewed by: Richard, April 2013
Good overview of the entire city of Auckland....all parts. I would recommend addiing the aquarium to the tour as we did since the aquarium is very unique with its focus on the seas of Antarctica. The Penguin Encounter was very well done along with the recreations of the base camps of the explorers.Reviewed by: Lloyd G, USA, January 2013
The tour guide was mediocre which downgraded this tour to three stars from four. Auckland is a big city with few "key" sites. There is a long bridge, parks, monuments...the usual things you see in a city of a milion plus people. The Space Needle could be seen from several places the bus stopped for photographs, but you need to go on your own to get the vista of the city it provides. The tour did not include Devonport, a neat little craftsy area across the bay that sits below the extinct volcano Mt. Victoria.Reviewed by: A. Russell O, March 2013
When booking the tour, I had arranged with the agent to be picked up at the Hilton as we were coming in on a early am flight and planned to have breakfast there. However, after we were not picked up at the allotted time, the Hilton front desk called the tour office for us and it seems that since we were not registered in the hotel our pickup was cancelled! Fortunately, there was enough time for us to take a taxi to the main office to catch the 9:30 tour which all in all was a good one.Reviewed by: Irving, March 2013
