Tours in Auckland

Auckland - Tour Highlights

New Zealand’s largest and highly regarded as the world’s third most liveable city, the perfect place to start or finish one of our New Zealand tours. There are a bounty of goodies to explore, from art precincts to amazing eateries, museums, theatres and shows, not forgetting the world class waterfront. Would you believe that there are over 50 volcanoes in the Auckland area? There is much more than meets the eye than here, Auckland most definitely isn’t “Just another city”.

Time spent here while on a Flying Kiwi tour:

Depending on where you start your tour you will spend 1 night here. However, as the main point where people start and finish their tour its a great place to consider staying a few extra days pre or post tour.

Things to do:

Waiheke Island: Waiheke is just a 35 minute ferry trip from downtown Auckland and has numerous gold sand beaches, while also being home to many famous vineyards and olive groves. A true slice of paradise, right on the doorstep of the city.

Skytower: Experience the revolving restaurant, or do the adrenaline-inducing Sky Walk or Sky Jump!

Rangitoto Island: Sail to Rangitoto Island and hike the Volcano


Insiders Tip:

Take a stroll around the Britomart bars and restaurants. Located in the heart of Auckland’s CBD, Britomart hosts a wealth of post-modernist architecture. Some of the city’s most delicious restaurants are nearby and you will also find some of the best coffee in the country.
