Meet Your Guides

When you tour with an Aucky Walky guide, you're assured of more landmarks, little groups, big laughs and a whole lot of local. Because this city is our hometown. As Auckland storytellers, we present with flair based on factual research. As professional guides, we're first-aid certified but also friendly Aucklanders! So come take a walk in our shoes.

Local Liz - Guide Director

Hello or Kia ora! I'm a fourth-generation Kiwi with a passion for walks guiding. So founded Aucky Walky Tours in 2017 to encourage more visitors (and curious locals) to experience the city on foot. This venture combines a love of people with storytelling, food, nature, history, culture and all-things Auckland.
I have raised my two sons here while also knocking off most of the Great Walks of New Zealand. Well-traveled, I love hanging out with happy people on holiday.
As an official Auckland Ambassador and an associate member of ProGuides New Zealand, I relish revealing the city's hidden gems, the foodie spots, the cool shops, the Aucklander's Auckland.

Walk with us to discover why Maori called Auckland, 'Tamaki Makaurau', a place desired by many.
Nga mihi! (Bye for now)

Janet - Guide

Kia ora and hello! I’m a born-and-bred Aucklander and have worked in New Zealand tourism all my adult life while raising a family. I'm fluent in Spanish and German with a little Portugese, French and Italian which comes in handy when guiding. My passion is spending time with people from different cultures (and visiting their countries too). Apart from New Zealand, I’ve traveled mostly in Europe, North and South America with Asia on my travel wish-list one day soon!

My favorite Auckland spots include Waiheke Island (amazing beaches, views, vineyards, restaurants) and our incredible, wild, West Coast beaches. So let me show you my amazing city and the best places to eat, shop and go!
