Welcome to Tāmaki Hikoi, Auckland Walking Tours
Our guided walking tours will share with visitors an understanding of what it takes for the people of Ngāti Whātua Orakei to live and thrive through extreme change and adversity.
On our Auckland tours you will hear of the intrinsic connection of the Ngāti Whātua people to their land and water. You will see how their ancestors’ playgrounds became the current generation’s classrooms. Both tours start within an easy 10-15 drive of the CBD and take in the mighty views of the Waitematā Harbour, while contemplating the history of the landscape’s many volcanoes.
