We had a great time on our Auckland city and West Coast full day tour. Our guide Sophia was a Maori (indigenous people to New Zealand).So we got to see all of our clients through her eyes. We had a small group of six people only which made it even better because of Sophia the trip was great there wasn’t any part of Auckland she didn’t take us too. We would definitely do this again

My partner and I found this tour wonderful and memorable. Our lovely tour guide Sophia was very informative and entertaining. She kept us well looked after. Better yet, we were grouped with an amazing group of people that has etched this experience into our hearts. Sophia went out of her way to make the most of our day and experience. We highly recommend her. She definitely got me even more interested in the Maori culture. In re to the tour, we were met with heavy rain that day, but that didn't change our A experience. The beach, the waterfall, the mountain roads, the mountain views, the museum and the city, were exceptional and combined with insightful stories, history and heart. Thanks for the delicious snacks and treats during our trip as well. I'll have to find some L and P and kiwi juice in Aust. My partner said he had the best Fish and Chips too, he doesn't think anything will top it now. Missing our whanauextended family a lot but will always remember you guys.

Excellent tour. Our guide, Kirstin, was extremely knowledgeable about the history of New Zealand, their fauna, etc., but she made the tour particularly enjoyable by not only showing us amazing vistas such as the waterfalls, the black sand beaches at Mission Bay, Arataki Visitor Center, Devonport, etc. but she made it easy for the group to get to know her and each other. Although it was raining in the morning, it didnt stop her from introducing us to local foods such as marmite albeit standing with umbrellas in the rain. Auckland was far more beautiful and interesting than we had expected. A truly unforgettable day!
