About Us

Showing those whom are ready to discover more that Auckland City is one of the best parts of New Zealand

We want to help people to enjoy Auckland City, we want to showcase a part of New Zealand people may not otherwise see, what we love about our city, who we are, why we are different, and our stories.

Auckland Free Walking Tours began after our staff both present and past had been traveling the world, the team at Auckland Free Walking Tours noticed that Free Walking Tours exist in all the major cities as well as some of the smaller ones.

We want everyone to be able to come and do a tour, we firmly believe that what we have to offer is a high-quality product not just in Auckland or New Zealand, but globally. We work hard to entertain and inform everyone that stops through our city, we are willing to bet that people will enjoy the tour and the city. In fact if they don’t we work for free, that is a real gamble with the time and energy that goes into creating these tours and all of the administrative work behind the scenes, but we are confident and that is why we show up to run tours and why you are able to read this now.

We plan to entertain, inform, teach, learn, show, explore, grow, adapt with anyone that comes along and is willing to get out of their hotel room. Come and walk with us on this journey.
