“beautiful views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Loved the views from our sky tower, so much to see. didn't go sky diving as I am afraid of heights, took me a long time to look at the glass that you walk on, But great for people who like it, also you can go up to the Beautiful resteraunt for dinner. Great place for Visitors.You can go out on the side of the tower, but will cost you. not my cup of tea.

Wonderful 360 degree views of Auckland. We visited on dusk. Absolutely worth visiting! Great souvenirs in the gift shop!

“Great views from the top!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

Nice way to get a birds-eye view of Auckland. Consider dining at one of the revolving restaurants near the top such as Orbit (must make reservations and spend $40 pp minimum): you can get a free pass on to the observation deck.

“Imperative stop in Auckland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

If you are in Auckland as a tourist, this is pretty much a must-see.

The observation deck gives you the opportunity to view (and photograph) Auckland, the City and Harbour from a 360 degree perspective. There are binoculars available (for a fee) allowing you to zoom in on an area of your desire. There are also glass bricks in the floor to walk / stand on (although many seemed to struggle with this). Pricing is on the upper end of reasonable at NZD28 (prior to any discount you may have).

One annoyance for me was the way the lighting is done, there were lots of reflections on the windows when I wanted to take photo's.

There is also a revolving restaurant (Orbit) and some thrill-seeker activities available, along with a gift shop at the bottom.

I'd certainly recommended allocating some time.
