Each tour is completely customized so you can choose the meeting location, start time and length that you prefer with a minimum of 2 hours.

The local guides are locals who are passionate about their city and love to meet travelers and share what they love about their city. They are not professional tour guides and do these tours occasionally, which provides an authentic and personal experience that is like having a friend show you around their home city. Through conversations with your local guide, you’ll learn what it’s like to live in Auckland learn about cultural differences, local events and politics and also get to know each other on a personal level. With this experience, you won’t be just passing through the city, you’ll be part of it.
