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 10am Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 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.
