Local Liz - Guide Director

Hello or Kia ora! I'm a fourth-generation Kiwi and founded Aucky Walky Tours to encourage more visitors to experience my beautiful city on foot. This venture combines my love of people and the outdoors, with storytelling about food, history and Aotearoa New Zealand's unique culture.
I have raised my two sons in this city while also knocking off most of the Great Walks of New Zealand. Well-traveled, I love hanging out with happy people on holiday.
As a local Ambassador, I relish revealing the city's hidden gems, the foodie spots, the cool shops, the real Aucklander's Auckland.

Walk with us to discover why Maori called Auckland, 'Tamaki Makaurau', a place desired by many.

Joe - Guide

Kia ora. I’m a born-and-bred Aucklander, fifth-generation New Zealander and corporate refugee. I’m passionate about my city and love showing it off to visitors from all walks of life. Along with my husband and three daughters, I enjoy getting out and about, enjoying the city's dining scene, culture, nature and relaxed, friendly vibe.

A self-professed coffee snob, my ideal start to a day combines a walk with friends and a great flat white (a double expresso with velvety-steamed milk).

I can’t wait to show you my favourite hidden lanes and top spots. To share Auckland’s stories, art, shopping, history, food and of course the best coffee. Join me for the inside guide to all-things Auckland. You won't regret it!
