Our guide, David, was the BOMB. He knows everything, from the history of Auckland and the Maori to all the plant and animal life in the jungles to all the best local spots. He is very entertaining, and makes an effort to include every person. It was a group of seven people from all over the world and the transportation was comfortable and convenient. It was a day trip and we saw many things, even walked along a black sand beach. All in all, a very memorable day.

Our tour guide and driver Dawn had excellent knowledge of the area and showed a genuine feeling for the environment and culture. She showed consideration for her guests needs. She was also an excellent driver, so I felt safe in her hands. She is an excellent ambassador for N.Z. The other members of the team that we overlapped with from time to time were friendly and helpful.

Very small group. Almost like a private tour. Schedule was light. Stephan, our morning guide, was on time and told us interesting stories of the city. Ross, afternoon guide, told us about the plants in the forest and showed us the black beach. Finished the day with coffee and pastries.

The tour was excellent. Our driver & host, Oly, was a great driver and has a wealth of information which he shared. Appreciated that we were picked up and dropped off at our hotel.

Amazing experiences! Our guide Dave was very informative and gave us lots of information throughout the whole trip! A must do if you really like nature walks.
