We continue on through the picturesque suburb of Ponsonby, known for its historic buildings, before heading over the Harbour Bridge to the North Shore. Here you can stroll on beautiful beach with views out across the Waitemata harbour to Rangitoto Island.
Next there is a short drive through historic Devonport to get to the panoramic views over Auckland that you can only get from Mount Victoria – Devonports very own dormant volcano.
Then travel back over the Harbour Bridge to view Westhaven Marina, one of the largest marinas in the Southern Hemisphere with views through the yacht masts to the city skyline. The Auckland City tour is an easy morning tour introduction to the diverse city of Auckland.
