Auckland Walks, the leader in city walking tours, takes you on an entertaining discovery experience and orientation of the inner city - embracing natural and social history, public art and heritage architecture - as well as an introduction to some of the retail, dining and entertainment possibilities.
Our enlightening walk leads you through the heart of the city, up into Albert Park and the University precinct and back down into Queen Street. We tell the stories of Auckland through its history, landscape, architecture, public art and spaces.
"Attentive, fun and generous. Opened up your city's fascinating culture and helped me comprehend it on a world scale." - Paul D, Blackfriars, London, UK.
