I wasn’t going to do the bridge climb in Auckland since I already booked this for Brisbane. However, when an online GrabOne deal made an appearance the day before my flight, I went for both the Auckland bridge climb and bungee. Thus, I got both at half the price.
I enjoyed the Auckland bridge climb experience more than Brisbane’s Story Bridge climb. I think a big reason for this was the smaller group size in Auckland. It was just 3 of us, including the guide. Also, the customer service at Story Bridge wasn’t nearly as good as Auckland’s service.
Also, a big difference is the transportation service offered by Auckland Bridge Climb. At no extra charge, they offer round-trip transportation from downtown to the bridge.
Our guide (I believe her name was Anna) was excellent, and made the tour memorable.
I liked that fact that I could easily combine the bungee jump experience to the bridge climb, thus avoiding two different trips. And my wife, who just wanted to do the bridge climb, was able to watch me jump from the pod. After my jump, we continued on with the bridge climb.
My only issue is that we were not able to bring a camera to the pod to photograph my jump. If you are just doing the bungee jump, you can bring your camera. But if you are also doing the climb in the same trip, you cannot bring your camera. This was not clear to me when making my reservation.
