Should you be visiting Auckland by cruise ship there is no better way to see the city. Auckland Explorer Buses leave from the Viaduct Harbour/Princes Wharf stop in downtown Auckland, only minutes from your cruise ship.
The tour price is a one day pass allowing you to hop on and hop off the bus at any of the 17 stops, plus also included with the pass is a complimentary ferry ticket from Auckland across the Waitemata Harbour to Devonport and return. With buses arriving and departing at all stops approximately every 15 – 20 minutes what a great way to explore Auckland on your own.. Hop on, Hop Off and Explore and even take in one or more of the attractions on route. Admission to the main attractions can be purchased on the day of travel.
