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
Fantastic experience. Incredibly knowledgeable guide. We absolutely loved it. My wife and I agreed this was the best thing we did in Auckland. Book without hesitation.
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.
Great tour! The tour was informative and contained a variety of experiences including visiting a magnificent waterfall, black sand beaches and a trail through the Waitakere Ranges. Our guides were locals and loved what they do… it was a wonderful afternoon.
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!!
Dion, our tour guide is very professionnel and friendly, have discovered nice places. Very good trip
Picked up at time arranged from hotel. Only 7 on trip. John was very professional and knowledgeable. Saw all things mentioned in their description--black sand beach, kauri trees, lots of birds, totem poles, great scenery. Loved the walk through the woods. Would recommend this trip.
Great tour of West Auckland. Guide was very friendly and informative. We had a small group of 5 people which made the tour more personable and enjoyable.
We only had a day in Auckland and wanted to make the most of it and the tour definitely helped us see a lot. Walked on the beach, went to a waterfall this was a bus tour where getting out of the bus was the focus, absolutely perfect. Dion our driver and tour guide was passionate and really made the tour wonderful.
We enjoyed this tour very much as it gave us an opportunity to see some of the New Zealand
countryside/"wilderness" around Auckland. Our guide was quite knowledgeable and wiling to tailor
the tour to the small group we had (two seniors and a family of five with 3 small children).
We had a great time on this tour, the guild was splendid, she was enthusiastic about sharing her insights on New Zealand with us, she was well informed and pleasant.
Great experience and wonderful views. Note that there is some walking required down and up hills which may not be suitable for everyone. Tour guide Dawn was great.
Wayne Thomas was great! We took a number of tours with Holland America through-out Australia and New Zealand and they were very good but this was excellent. I highly recommend this tour.
Fantastic experience walking through the rainforest with an expert guide. Special thanks to Dion for a great tour and for helping me propose to my girlfriend in front of the most beautiful waterfall in all of New Zealand. Professional service, extremely informative, and an all-around good time. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great nature walk during an afternoon in Auckland!
It was a great trip and good to have a small group. Beache was beautiful and the bush walk was enlightening. Thoroughly recommend it.
It was amazing! We had a small group and a nice and funny guide!
Very good tour with exploring rain forest wild nature, waterfall and giant trees. The guide was quite informative and nice to us. I will definitely recommend this trip to my friends.
Lion Rock at Piha Bay...the rainforest and the giant Kauri trees...breathtaking!!! This may have been my favorite tour. Dion was an excellent guide and I really got a lot out of the day. I'm so happy I did it!
Excellent tour. Very informative. Enjoyed all aspects of it. The guides made the best outdoor tea I've ever had!!! The scenery was spectacular. New Zealand is beautiful. Highlights (other than the tea) were the water falls and black sand beach.
Very interesting tour with a small group. Efficient pick-up from the hotels too, The guide (Tony) was very good and showed all the special things in the forest and provided interesting explanation about the plants and birds. By the way, it is obvious why it's called a RAINforest! I recommend this tour, it is the best I booked via Viator!
