What you can expect

Get to know the diverse culture of Auckland with an excursion to explore its food and craft markets, vineyards, hip cafés and lively culture. Your time in the city takes you from the bustling waterfront to the charming wineries of Waiheke Island for a memorable introduction to New Zealand life.

From your starting point by the cruise port, the tour shows you local highlights such as Quay Street, the Auckland Harbour Bridge at Waitemata Harbour, Queen Street, Auckland University, Dominion Parks and Gardens, the Tamaki Waterfront and the Auckland Viaduct. Pay a visit to the Auckland War Memorial Museum and, if time permits, stop for photos at the scenic coastal lookout of Bastion Point.

In the afternoon, board a ferry to cruise across the Hauraki Gulf to Waiheke Island, where a local guide is waiting to lead you on a tour of the island's vineyards. Mudbrick Vineyard, The Goldie Room and Te Whau Vineyard all offer tastings of some premium New Zealand wines in settings that feature magnificent views of the Hauraki Gulf and the Coromandel Peninsula.

Your tour concludes as the ferry returns you to your cruise ship with a new, deeper insight into the city.
