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).

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!

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!
