Inspired by local expert Karen Thompson Smith, this exclusive Princess designed guided tour begins with a coach ride along the waterfront past historic Bastion Point. Overlooking Waitemata Harbour it was the scene of protests by the Maori during the 1970s. Continuing on, you'll pass the Auckland War Museum, which sits upon the side of volcanic crater. Mt. Eden beckons next then it's on to Eden Park Stadium, New Zealand's largest sports stadium. After a tour through the popular suburb of Ponsonby you'll discover why Auckland is known as the City of Sails, as your driver takes you around the Harbour, home to around 135,000 yachts and launches, more per capita than any other city in the world. Finally, you'll wind your way around to the foot of the Auckland Harbour Bridge and on to world-famous Giapo Ice Cream (arguably the best in New Zealand) for a behind-the-scenes visit and a tasting of their innovative flavors.

Special Notes:

Please note the transport portion of this tour ends at Giapo Ice Cream and guests will need to walk back to the ship (approx. 1km). Giapo is a totally dedicated Gluten Free facility. Vegan, Halal, Vegetarian, Kosher, egg free and nut free options are available.
