“What a view!”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

It makes the view from the CN tower in Toronto look downright boring! So much to look at with all the islands, inlets and areas. It was especially great to be there at sunset.

“Glass floors - Nice touch”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

Good views from both the observation levels all around Auckland and the Gulf... the cafe downstairs has the same views so you can enjoy that as well over a cup of coffee or drinks.
There is a glass floor section in the elevator so you can see your progress all the way up, but what I found interesting were the glass sections in the observatory... gives a nice view all the way down.
You'll get what you expect from any city tower... so as long as you don't expect much more its worth it.
