Auckland City Sights, Museum and Cultural Performance
More than just a city, Auckland is a whole region full of things to see and do. Experience some of the history, culture and scenic highlights on this half-day tour, followed by a cultural performance at the Auckland Museum. Leaving at 9:45, the tour takes you along famous Queen Street, edgy ‘K’ Road, fashionable Ponsonby, boutique Parnell (where you will briefly stop) as well as the iconic Harbour Bridge & Viaduct Harbour with its revitalised Silo Park. Just above Mission Bay is one of the scenic highlights: Michael Joseph Savage Memorial Park which offers stunning views over the picturesque Eastern Bays, Auckland City and the Waitemata Harbour.
You’ll then visit the Domain, the 75 hectare historic park home to the Auckland War Memorial Museum, which is sited on a 62,000 year-old volcano. You can explore the museum’s exhibitions which tell the story of New Zealand, its place in the Pacific and its people. It has pre-eminent Maori and Pacific treasures, significant natural history resources and major social and military history collections. It is the country’s oldest museum, established in 1852 and here you’ll enjoy a Maori cultural performance from members of the native Auckland Iwi (tribe) Ngati Whatua, including traditional songs, dances and the Haka.
