A destination you can't miss when on an Auckland Sightseeing tourBeing the highest natural point in Auckland, Mt Eden is a hot spot for tourists who are sightseeing in Auckland City.
Due to the popularity of Mt Eden and the number of sightseeing tourist buses driving to the summit, there was a ban on all vehicles driving to the summit. There is a short 7 minute walk to the top, or 10minutes if averagely fit. Please let the driver if you are unable to take the walk and we will organise an alternative viewing point.
