Superb commentary by our guide Julie. You get unique knowledge on the city's history and development that you probably wouldn't get in another tour. If I may suggest, can you do similar your but on other parts of Auckland? Not just the city center. Thanks!

Eva, thank you for a comprehensive and insightful tour to Auckland! She really made the city come to life, effortlessly intertwining mauri culture, NZ’s colonial history with architectural and social aspects of modern Auckland. It was a fabulous tour and Eva was absolutely charming.
