Nestled between 2 harbors and built atop no fewer than 53 volcanic cones, culturally vibrant Auckland is framed by an azure coastline and dotted with urban green spaces. Explore the city's historic architecture, waterfront sights, and buzzing modern lifestyle on this morning tour.

Your outing begins with convenient pickup right at your hotel. Ride up palm tree-lined Queen Street—the most expensive property in the New Zealand version of Monopoly—and listen as your guide shares facts about the city's main commercial thoroughfare. Pass by landmark 19th- and 20th-century structures like the Auckland Ferry Building and the old Auckland Customhouse as well as contemporary skyscrapers in the central business district.

As you ride through the trendy suburb of Ponsonby, hear about Auckland's thriving arts, nightlife, and culinary scenes. Hip and wealthy today, there are plenty of fascinating stories to tell about this neighborhood from its decades as a vice district packed with brothels, bars, and violent crime.

Pass over the Harbour Bridge to North Shore, and soak up the palpable laidback vibe with a stroll down Narrow Neck Beach in charming Devenport. From there, wind up to the top of Mount Victoria. From this vantage point, you can take in sweeping views over the city and the shimmering waters of Waitemata Harbor. Your tour concludes with a stop at Westhaven Marina, where you can admire the thousands of sailboats berthed in the Southern Hemisphere's largest yacht marina.
