“Excellent vantage point”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Skytower is a bit expensive, but the views over Auckland are excellent. We spent a few hours on the upper and lower viewing platforms and watched the boats in the harbour and the general business of a city as Auckland carried through it's day. Although not game to do a sky walk or a sky jump, it was interesting to watch those people that enjoyed their adrenalin rush. The glass floors were enough excitement for me.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

We couldn't get into the revolving restaurant but the one underneath turned out to be better - HUGE buffet and very yummy food for everyone. Highly recommended

“Touristy and not worth a special trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Skytower is expensive and not really worth a special trip - there are plenty of free vantage points in Auckland, Mt Eden, Bastion Point that have good views. Don't waste your money. Skytower offers the Skywalk and Skyjump but in my opinion there are better adventure sports/jumping off things opportunities in NZ - opt for a bungy or ledge swing in Taupo or Queenstown instead if you are looking for an adrenalin hit.

“Loved it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Great place and amazing views. I loved the glass floors and the massive windows - well worth going all the way to the top. So good I went for sun up and sun down.

“The Best view in the world”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

View is fantastic. Jump off the top for the thrill of a lifetime. View wow! Look over the amazing Waitamata. Watch the ferries leave for Waiheke Island. Look on the ant like figures below. See the city spread out before you.
