Our tips for Auckland

  • Go sky high. Make time to ascend Sky Tower, the tallest structure in the Southern Hemisphere to gain a 360-degree vantage of the city and its surrounds. Visitors to Sky Tower can dine in the revolving restaurant or even bungee jump from the top! The choice on this Auckland tour is yours.
  • Venture out of the city. While Auckland itself has enough to entertain any tourist for the entirety of their stay, it would be a crying shame not to explore the region further. Auckland is the perfect gateway to a land of veritable vineyards, volcanic hikes and rainforest rambles. Iconic Auckland day trips include ventures to Eden Mountain, Waiheke Island and the Waitakere Ranges.
