I loved the tour. Our guide was friendly and full of stories. We saw a beautiful waterfall and beach, and I would highly recommend this trip for anyone with limited time in Auckland who wants to see more of the island!

Great tour! Pick up was on time. We visited the Waitakere Ranges lookout, had a quick walk to a nice waterfall, went to the black sand beach and went for a walk through a rainforest. Plenty of time for photos at each stop and walks were quite easy to suit to all fitness levels. Definitely recommend

Pick up was right on time. The group was small. The experience was very interactive with an excellent guide. The sights were varied and the beach was spectacular. It was well worth the money.

This was a great tour. We had a small group, which made it even better. Our guide, Alan, was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable - his passion for his job really came through and made the experience all that much better. The timing of stops in the different places was good....everything was well thought out....lots of time for photos and time to just soak in the beautiful vistas. Good value for the price. I'd highly recommend this tour with Viator.

Sean, our tour guide was fantastic! He's really knowledgable and his love of the nature is very obvious. He made our tour fun and exciting. We all agreed that the bush and beach tour was the highlight of our Australia and New Zealand vacation. Thank you Sean for such a wonderful experience!!
