Private Tours

A hosted city tour, team social outing, and enjoyable historical event all in one.

What has been referred to as the bohemian heart of Auckland, an area rich in history with a diverse community of artists, musicians, and creatives. Soak in culture, boutique and unusual cafés, and art galleries on a street where every door leads to something different. Walk past cabaret and karaoke bars, that are at the heart of Auckland’s rainbow community. See murals that talk about our politics and history, along side street art, and sculptures. Be ready, it’s an experience.

This is a walking tour not to be missed if you are a visitor to Auckland or someone that has been here for their whole life.

If you have a group of six or more and would like something easy for your next social event get in touch!

    What Will You Learn On Your Tour?

    This is a tour that combines street art and social history, we talk about pride and things that we could improve as Aucklanders, parts of our history that we are both proud of and parts that hurt. We talk about people’s perceptions of K RD and the name Karangahape, we talk about Ponsonby, Art and Culture and the rainbow that makes up Auckland. Prostitution and changes over time. We talk about our Polynesian communities, and about why New Zealand has a ban on nuclear weapons.
