This Auckland-in-a-day experience reveals why the city is one of the most liveable places on Earth.
Your day starts at 10am with a guided walking tour of the inner-city from historic Queen Street. Your Aucky Walky guide will lead you through hidden lanes, past popular food spots and street art to an early Maori fortress. Along the way you'll hear about Auckland's Maori history and pause to enjoy refreshments at a gracious hotel (as this tour includes an indulgence or two). A ride uptown on the locals' bus reveals a vibrant local neighborhood.
Here you'll wander through a grand arcade down into a bird-filled valley, returning to Queen St by the Auckland Town Hall. Choose an optional lunch of mouth-watering fish and chips or a grilled fish salad at a popular heritage food lane. Your guide will escort you to lunch (if selected) before bidding farewell.
At 2pm, your e-Bike tour with Power to the Pedal starts from the centrally-located Pullman Hotel. Now you'll travel further afield, cruising through the cool inner-city on a fun electric bike. As well as showcasing local life, you'll enjoy spectacular city and harbor views.
You’ll ride at a leisurely pace with frequent stops for photos and breaks. The majority of the ride will be on dedicated cycleways or on quiet city roads but expect some traffic. However, your experienced guide will be with you at all times.
Both tours guarantee small-groups and a personal encounter. Together you’ll get off the beaten track and explore the squares, side streets and open spaces of New Zealand’s most diverse city on foot and eBike. You’ll also receive great local advice and memories to last a lifetime. Watch this for a sneak peak of the Hello Auckland tour.
