Auckland, New Zealand

Hi, I'm John I am a true born and bred Aucklander, and have lived all my life in this wonderful city.

My Auckland heritage is very strong, going back three generations. I am passionate about Auckland and would love the opportunity to show you around this intriguing city.

My background is in real estate where I was the co-owner of an international franchise company. I also hold a Diploma from the New Zealand Institute of Management. My interests include movies, shows, music, and sports. I play tennis and golf, and run regularly (starting tomorrow!). I retain a keen interest in international affairs, and have travelled to many parts of the world, including the USA, Canada, Australia, some Pacific islands, Great Britain, Europe, and Egypt.

The unique location of Auckland, stretching from one side of New Zealand to the other on a narrow isthmus, means there is an incredible variety of natural features to enjoy, including native bush, beautiful beaches, dormant volcanoes, a sparkling harbour, plus manicured parks with stands of native trees. A rich and colourful history and culture provides a vibrant backdrop to this lively city, and ensures that a guided tour of Auckland will be a memorable experience.

Of course a tour could be customised to meet your particular requirements. I can promise you a compelling mix of sound local knowledge, and fun. it would be a pleasure to introduce you to the Auckland I know and love.

See you soon!
