From: To:

Departing from Downtown Auckland, your tour takes you along Queen Street, the "Golden Mile" of Auckland's business and shopping district. Along the way, watch for a wide range of architectural styles from the 1880s to today's modern high rises. The tour continues past New Zealand's largest university before traveling across Auckland's Harbour Bridge for expansive views of Waitemata Harbour, boat marinas, and the city skyline. Keep your eyes peeled for the city's 48 extinct volcanic sites that dot city park and gardens. Then it's on to Auckland Museum to view fascinating exhibits of Maori and early European history of New Zealand. Afterwards, the tour continues through residential areas, providing insight into how Aucklanders live.

After your three-hour bus tour, it's on to visit Kelly Tarlton’s Antarctic Encounter and Underwater World. Walk through a life-sized replica of Captain Scott’s hut and see live yellow-eyed penguins strutting on the snow and ice as you ride by in an Antarctic snowcat. This experience is followed by a ride along a moving walkway where you come face-to-face with stingrays, sharks, and a large variety of beautiful fish swimming right above you, separated only by a thin strip of clear acrylic in an underwater tunnel.
