DescriptionAuckland’s sparkling harbor is considered the jewel in the crown, but the city’s beating heart lies in its back streets, local cafés and hidden parks that most visitors miss. Uncover tucked-away gems such as the city’s theater precinct and vintage shopping venues. There is sure to be something for everyone on this 2.5 hour guided walk. Your small-group tour starts downtown with the historic bustle of Queen Street. After a brief Maori greeting, you guide will lead you off the beaten track. Traversing hidden lanes you’ll pass heritage buildings, sculptures and temples of high fashion to emerge at an early Maori fortress and volcanic park brimming with military secrets. Learn about Auckland’s early Maori history and its European colonization, then pause to admire the city’s world-renowned Art Gallery. A short ride on a local bus uptown will take you to a unique neighborhood that stands in contrast with the busy city below. Take a walk through a grand old arcade loved by locals and browse the wares of local shop owners. A gentle downhill stroll through a tree-filled valley reveals the city’s thriving theater district and the Auckland Town Hall, home to the Philharmonic Orchestra. It’s here on upper Queen Street that the guided tour ends. Your tour is limited to 8 people, ensuring a more personal Kiwi encounter.
