See first hand why Auckland is known as the City of Sails as you enjoy a trip over the Harbour Bridge. Visit the famous Auckland landmark of Mount Eden, a dormant volcano whose summit offers excellent panoramic views of the city and harbours. From this fantastic vantage point you will see evidence of Auckland’s volcanic history, the most significant being the youngest volcano of Rangitoto Island at the entrance to the Waitemata harbour.
In addition to these natural features the city sights tour also takes in the trendy shopping area of Parnell Village with its historical buildings that have been transformed into boutiques, antique, craft and specialty shops. Your tour will then take you along the scenic waterfront route of Tamaki Drive.
Following your tour of the city we take you to the Auckland Domain, the city’s oldest park which is situated on a 62,000 year old volcano. Here you will enjoy a Maori cultural performance at the Auckland War Memorial Museum which is situated within The Domain. Performed by members of the Auckland-based Ngati Whatua iwi (tribe), the performance includes traditional dance, haka and songs.
