Your small-group tour starts downtown on historic Queen Street. Your local guide will lead you through the stylish Britomart precinct towards Auckland’s bustling wharves. Learn about the 'City of Sails' as you wander west towards the  America’s Cup Viaduct, once a rustic fishing village and now a thriving restaurant hub.

Along the way, you'll hear how the city evolved from a Maori battleground and shabby colonial outpost into a water lover’s paradise and major Pacific port. Learn about the downtown reclamation and expansion plans for Auckland’s waterfront.

Enjoy local tales (and singing sculptures) as you stroll past little fishing boats bobbing beside super yachts. Watch fish being unloaded, dip your toes in the Pacific Ocean and soak up the best sights from a hidden viewing deck. Pause to take pictures of the cityscape, North Shore, Harbour Bridge, Silo Park and the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest Marina.

Work up an appetite as you walk through Auckland’s Fish Market and marvel at the fascinating array of seafood.

Your final destination is a popular North Wharf bistro for a feast of freshly cooked seafood and sides. Here you’ll sample the likes of dusted squid with aoli, prawns in garlic butter and Kiwi-style fish and chips. Mix and mingle with your entertaining local guide and exchange tips with your fellow guests.

The choice is then yours to linger in this stylish water-front quarter or take a leisurely stroll back into town.
