Louise Y.

Auckland, New Zealand

Kia ora. I would love you to spend some time with me as we explore Tamaki Makaurau (Auckland) and beyond.

I grew up on a farm, attended the small local country school, went to high school in Auckland and have lived mostly in Auckland. I will share the sights, secrets and tastes of New Zealand's largest city with you.
As your private tour guide I will take you to the best sights and my favourite spots where you can enjoy the nature, history and culture of a city built on more than 50 dormant volcanoes.
Whether you choose to walk or be driven you can be assured it will be at an enjoyable pace. I'm very flexible so you can always suggest or change something as we go. Just relax, have a great day out and enjoy discovering the real New Zealand with me.
I have been working with international visitors for more than 20 years and have lived and worked overseas. I love travelling and making friends. I'm a great believer in Slow Travel, having a local experience and taking away lots of good memories. Free Wifi available while you are with me.

A Recent Review of this guide

Louise deserves better than 5 out of 5 stars! She is extremely knowledgeable, warm and kind. This was our first trip to Auckland and we feel like we saw so much more than we expected to be able to do including the market at Britomart, Devonport and Takapuna, lovely lunch and so many other places. We are in awe of the job Louise did and appreciate what a wonderful person she is in addition to being a topnotch tour guide. We would definitely book with her again and recommend her to any visitor to Auckland!
