What to Expect
Travel reference:

This hop-on hop-off bus tour is the best way to explore Auckland and all its must-see sights!

Choose from 2 scenic routes, or mix and match throughout a 24 or 48 hour period. On the City Tour (Red Route) you'll see SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton's, the Sky Tower and Parnell Village and much more. Or switch to the Blue Route to visit Auckland Museum, Mt Eden, the Auckland Zoo and MOTAT and beyond. With lots of stops along the way and regular buses throughout the day, you'll learn more about the beautiful city and its various landmarks than you thought possible. This ticket also includes a return ferry trip across the harbor to the beautiful seaside suburb of Devonport. Visit this historic suburb and browse boutiques for unique gifts, indulge at a restaurant or cafe, go to the beach or climb North Head for harbour views.
