We loved our tour! It was very informative and fun. We went on this tour straight from landing from our flight so we had some personal items with us. Wish we had known to leave our valuables in our hotel or something so that we did have to have it with us all the time. Nothing happened but just wish we had known to leave the valuables behind. Also, we were supposed to have one hour break between the two tours for lunch, do to scheduling and traffic we only had about 30 minutes to get food and eat. It was a bit rushed but we managed. Besides the two minor things, we loved the tours.
My friend and I loved the combo Auckland Highlights and Wilderness Eco-Tour. Dion was our guide in the morning. He was very kind, professional and enthusiastic about showing us a great overview of Auckland. Sean was our guide in the afternoon. He was equally as nice, informative, enthusiastic and professional. We loved every minute of the tour. It was a great way to spend our first day in New Zealand and our only day in Auckland. I would highly recommend this tour company and would definitely look them up again when returning to N.Z.
Not normally one to give out five star ratings, but this trip was absolutely incredible for me. Wonderful, rare birds all over the island, which is its own secluded paradise. I couldn't believe how dense the forest was, it was like being in a fantasy movie when walking the trails. The ferry ride out was nice, offering many sights in the Auckland harbor.
The guides and volunteers were also fantastic. Fiona was extremely pleasant and very knowledgeable about the island and its history. The other volunteers at the shop were quite friendly and nice to chat with.
Value wise, there is nothing out there close to comparable to this day trip, and I would highly recommend it!
This has to be the highlight of our trip. I have never seen so many different birds, and the experience of walking through the forrest with all of the calls ringing in my head was surreal.
Very good and well supervised; was impressed with the safety precautions and the instructions given by the staff. Exciting and enjoyed it very much,
Our guide, Dawn, picked us up promptly from our hotel and proceeded to share her knowledge and enthusiasm for Aukland the entire time! We made fun stops and felt we had a wonderful overview of Aukland including the coast, suburbs, fish market, eco sanctuary and so much more. Great day and one we would really recommend to those on short visits to Aukland.
This was a highlight of my New Zealand holiday. The ferry trip was lovely. On arrival we were divided into groups and given a choice of two walks to the lighthouse and lunch. There were a lot of people there but more than enough volunteer guides, so each group was small. I was with six other people and we were all impressed with our guide Kathryn and her knowledge of the island's birdlife. After lunch (you take your own) five of us did the alternative walk back to the wharf, which was just as lovely as the first walk. Even though we didn't have a guide we recognised the birds we saw and heard. Hobbs Beach is a lovely spot and my only regret was I didn't take something to swim in.
We had plenty of time on the island but next time I'd stay there overnight.
Fantastic day out even if you are not too keen on heights. Went 50 km an hour 50m above the ground over trees - tremendous fun!
EXCELLENT TOUR. LOTS OF STOPS AND WALK ABOUTS !
the tour was awesome. could of done another round of zipping, and the bush walk was amazing, the guides were excellent. A most to do!
You guys are so so professional, you take away any of the anticipation and let your customers enjoy the full experience from go to woah!!! Brilliant concept, excellently executed and totally enjoyable. Have and will continue to recommend this adventure to fellow Aussie travellers. "godd Job!!!"
If you're looking for a way to escape the hustle and bustle of Auckland, Waiheke Island is a must-do! The views for the zipline were outstanding. You get to go 3 times, with each zipline more fun than the previous. The nature hike was a fun addition to the experience. The guides are really well educated about the NZ bush. Note though that the nature hike is up-hill, so definitely make sure you're wearing good walking shoes. Plus, you might get a bit muddy! Overall I would highly recommend!
Enjoyed both the city part and the rainforest part, a nice way to get a good perspective of New Zealand. The guides were very knowledgeable and the tour well organized. Would recommend this as a good overall view of Auckland.
My daughter and I really enjoyed the trip, ziplining through beautiful vistas and the walking tour was breath taking, we wanted to do it again. Johnny and Morgan are the greatest folks you will ever meet. They really took pride in what they do and treated as friends and not customers. We explored the island the rest of the day. This was well worth the trip.
