Expect a local greeting in Maori from your top local 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. You'll pause for a refreshment break at a heritage art-deco hotel in a light-filled courtyard.

Emerging from the old town you'll wander by the gateway of a past Maori fortress into a serene city park. With views 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 grand arcades.

A stroll through a valley bursting with birdsong is an unexpected delight in the heart of the city. Walking through the theatre district you may discover an actor rehearsing their lines outdoors. Every day in Auckland is a theatre of the street.
