About this activity
Expect a local greeting in Maori from your expert guide, a friendly Aucklander. Your 2.5 hour morning tour sets off from downtown’s historic Queen Street. Along with your small group, you’ll leave the bustle behind and wander into laneways bursting with local art, boutiques and cafes.

A stroll through an outdoor plaza reveals a shopping oasis of Kiwi high fashion. A narrow alley where the sailors and traders once came ashore, brims with shady stories. As you walk you'll hear the Māori and colonial history of Auckland and discover its volcanic beginnings. 

Your tour includes an indulgence or two including refreshments at a gorgeous art-deco hotel. Afterwards you'll emerge from the old town at the gateway of a past Maori fortress, now a serene city park. With a stunning view of Sky tower, you’ll learn about the World War Two secrets right under your feet. Pause and admire the award-winning Auckland Art Gallery, before hopping on the locals’ bus with your guide. For a short ride uptown to a vibrant artistic neighbourhood and one of the city's last heritage arcades.

A stroll down a tranquil valley bursting with birdsong is an unexpected delight in the heart of the city. Walking through the theatre precinct you may unexpectedly discover an actor rehersing. Each day in Auckland is a theatre of the street.

Your tour ends on upper Queen Street next to the Auckland Town Hall. Here your guide will bid you farewell or “Haere Ra” and offer advice on what to do next. 

To lunch like a local, choose an optional upgrade. Finish your tour with a delicious lunch and a glass of New Zealand wine or beer at a popular city bistro. Your guide will escort you to the restaurant and bid you 'bon appetit'.
