Explore New Zealand's biggest city with an Auckland tour. Auckland offers a huge variety of sightseeing tours and activities thanks to its spectacular location.

The city lies on a narrow isthmus with the Hauraki Gulf and the Hunua Ranges on the east and the Manukau Harbour and Waitakere Ranges on the west.  The beautiful natural assets of Auckland have made it a dream destination for all travellers, so no matter what kind of person you are Auckland is the perfect place for you.

Another option for seeing Auckland in one day is a hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus tour. Auckland Explorer Bus is the city's original hop on hop off bus tour. It's an easy and fun way to see Auckland's highlights, with full commentary. There are two tour routes, one covering the central city and waterfront with attractions like the Auckland Museum, Kelly Tarlton's, Queen Street, the Sky Tower and Parnell, and another taking in more attractions out of the city including Mt Eden, the Auckland Zoo and MOTAT, the Museum of Transport and Technology. 

Your 24-hour pass gives you access to both tour routes. Hop on and off wherever you like along the way! If you need more time, choose the 48-hour pass option. You can also upgrade to a combo pass that includes entrance to some of the attractions, for even more savings. And even better, all passes include a FREE return ferry trip to Devonport!
