Overview

Join us on our guided walk through the streets of Auckland's central hub, introducing you to all the best bits of our seaside metropolis. The walk leaves from the Queens Wharf Village (89 Quay Street) — at daily 10am. The entire walk will take between 2.5 and 3 hours, and we’ll be walking rain or shine. Bookings aren’t necessary, just come on down and look out for your friendly guide who will be holding a bright blue Auckland Free Walking Tours umbrella. From Auckland’s rich history right through to the brand new developments of our fair city, your AFWT guide will walk and talk you through the changing ages of New Zealand’s largest metropolis.

Guides were easy to spot, thanks to the blue umbrella. Both were very professional and welcoming, offering sunscreen and having a lovely chat with everyone. Since we were a rather big group, we were divided in two. Our lovely guide Julie was very professional, showed...More
