About Timmy’s Tours Aotearoa

Timmy’s Tours guarantees a good time exploring greater Auckland and the North of Aotearoa (New Zealand).  We keep it friendly and small getting you to the spots only the locals know about, all set to a soundtrack of the choicest Kiwi music.

The idea grew organically over the last 10 years or so as Timmy travelled to more places and met people around the world.  He’s always found the most enjoyable travel experiences were those he had with real locals, doing real local stuff.  So as time progressed and these overseas friends started to visit New Zealand Timmy always found himself organising outings to show off his homeland (and he found these friends kept telling him he should do this for a job).

Fast forward to today and we have Timmy’s Tours, a unique kind of tour company because really it’s not a tour company at all, it’s just Timmy doing the same thing he’s always done, showing friends (to be) around beautiful Aotearoa.

Better than sitting in an office all day eh?  See you soon.
