Celebrate the Festive Season on Foot with Aucky Walky
Xmas Laneway and Tpas Walking Tour

This Christmas, discover Auckland from a new perspective on a private city walking tour with a local storyteller and your team or friends. 

Let your guide reveal fascinating legends, hidden art and landmarks as you walk. Enjoy delicious tapas at tour's end and celebrate the festive season on foot.

Your private tour starts downtown on Auckland's historic Queen Street at 1.30pm. Your friendly local guide will walk you through the city’s hidden lanes to an early Māori fortress and a park with a military secret. On the way you'll sample artisan treats at a local chocolaterie. You’ll hear stories at the heart of the city and ho-ho-hop on the locals' bus to vibrant uptown and an historic arcade. A gentle stroll through a valley humming with birdsong brings you to the city's theatre district and finally, the Auckland Town Hall. Your reserved table then awaits at a popular city bistro for tapas. Imagine Turkish kebabs, potatas bravas, garlic mushrooms with chorizo sausage, satay chicken, Spanish tuna dip and more.

Walk duration:  2 - 2,5 hours     

Distance: around 3 km at a leisurely pace. The route includes stairs and an uphill section. 

The tour includes: private guide (an entertaining Auckland storyteller), a city walking tour, chocolate tasting, a ride on the locals' bus, a reservation at a popular city bistro and generous tapas to share. (Note drinks extra, at own cost)
