Great views of the city and beyond!
andyw100, Sept 2023
Ticket offers great flexibility to visit once at any time during the day of your booking. We enjoyed the fast elevator to the top and the wonderful views. Your ticket allows access to two different viewing decks, including the highest accessible floor at the top of the tower. To access the top don’t forget to take the second elevator to the top. The views from the top deck were great, you can see for miles around. There were no restrictions on time and several places to sit down at the top. We visited about a hour before sunset to enjoy both the day time views and watch night descend on the city as the lights come on. This is a must do attraction when visiting Auckland!

Great experience for the family. The kids were kept intrigued the whole time especially the glass floor.
Skycity day trip
Tasi_M, Sept 2023
My mokos and I had an amazing time up there. We took a lot of photos. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The only thing I thought was a bit confusing, was buy tickets online. I was pretty sure the pricing for kids were $20 ages 6 - 15, age 5yr and under were free. Unfortunately I had to pay for my 5 yr old moko.
Loved the tower
Caroline_A, Aug 2023
A great way to view the city in one go. The trip up in a glass floored elevator was fun and the two observation levels offered a unique view of the city. A definite must for all visitors to the city!
Great view of city
Bevan_D, Aug 2023
Great 360 degree view of Auckland. Slight panic when standing on the glass panels in the floor. Worth the trip.
Great views across Auckland
Alison_R, Jul 2023
We booked for one day, but due to jet lag and other activities, we went in to see if we could change the date, which they were happy to arrange. We went up the tower at around 5:30pm when it was still light and stayed as it got dark, so we were able to see the amazing views and the lights at night. We were lucky that it was clear by this time as it had been foggy earlier in the day and visibility was very poor. We paid for the Sky Slide, which was safe and fun. Unfortunately the Sky Bar was not open on Mondays. We didn’t do the jump, although it looked awesome, as there was no space - so if this is your thing, make sure you book a time slot. We could have dine the walk as there was some availability, but elected not to as we are doing extreme stuff in Queenstown.
Would do again!
Ryan_T, Jul 2023
Very cool view and was able to relax for a bit with a coffee and snack at the top. Would recommend!!
Good for first time visit
Jessica_M, Jul 2023
Good experience when visiting Auckland for the first time. Only had time to visit at night though I wouldn’t recommend as you can’t see much
Auckland Sky Tower
Angela_K, Jun 2023
Absolutely breathtaking views of Auckland. A must for first time visitors and short stays. Great cafe, bar if not dining in the tower.
Peter_B, Jun 2023
You were more expensive than buying tickets at the entrance. I will probably never use you again. I ceel cheated.
Totally worth the trip!
Russ_S, May 2023
Totally worth the trip - especially if you can get a discount through Viator or a similar website. Absolutely the best way to see the city and surrounding area. Make sure to go to the 60th floor as there tend to be less people, the views are clearer there and there's some soothing music to calm your nerves due to the height.
Upper deck the best.
celinemac1, May 2023
Viator gave great discount on tickets. Views were beautiful as you can see for many miles. Lower deck was full of school children but, upper deck was quiet and peaceful. We watched a couple “jump” off deck. And the virtual slide ride looked fun.
No crowd control
Stephen_M, Apr 2023
The views are great .. though the crowd control is terrible. They let too many people into the tower at the same time. To get to the upper level you need to catch another lift and the queue wrapped around the building which made it impossible to move around the lower level.
Great city view
Sandi_H, Mar 2023
Great views of the city and harbor! Just be aware that the entrance is inside the Sky City building because there’s no sign on the outside of the tower itself.
Great views
Helen_G, Mar 2023

DALE_R, Mar 2023
Walk directly from cruise ship a plus. Elevator ride up was fantastic with windows. View from the top was breathtaking. Loved Auckland Sky Tower
Great view
Paul_W, Mar 2023
A Must do on a clear sunny day. A little pricey though. It's cheaper to pay at the kiosk than viator.
Awesome view and great ice cream .
Janet_S, Feb 2023
Awesome views well organised, plenty of time to look around, opportunity to watch people jumping off the tower and great ice cream in the cafe
Great viewing attraction!
Thomas_B, Feb 2023
Views of the city from 51 stories up, pics. Enjoyable & well worth the $. Kind & helpful staff. Nice attraction for those visiting- glad to find a coin souvenir as well. Thank you!
