Shaun is passionate about the outdoors and very knowledgeable about New Zealand. The hikes covered some spectacular scenery and provided a quiet retreat from the bustle of Auckland. We had a great time!

To describe Black Sand Tours is to simply say they are the best. Top notch all the way around and a must if you are staying in the Auckland area. Shaun the tour guide is amazing and will take you to some of the most beautiful places. We went to Piha beach and to Bethel. Both beautiful places and made for an awesome adventure. This was booked last minute and wound up being the highlight of my two weeks in New Zealand. I will book again when I return. A

Shaun went to GREAT LENGTHS to accommodate a rebooking situation. He was very informative and excellent Ambassador for NZ and his Business. He also adjusted the itinerary for his Clients. A walking encyclopedia on the Kiwi West Coast!

Unfortunately The owner of this tour did not contact us to confirm pick up time as stated on voucher, we have to call him and even he seemed not sure what time to pick us up. On the day of the tour he rang us but he was late for 20 minutes. Unfortunately I missed the fun at waterfall, there was a bus and car crush on the way to the waterfall only one lane road and closed the road which I was really interested and the reason for this tour booking. He replace to visit other place but he was not been there for a year and it was changed and could not jump into the water so we just drive there and back to the city. I had only half day fun and other half day was drive around in small van with full capacity of 3:2:3 sitting total of 8 people. He offered free tour next day but I have other commitment. I feel He was not prepare for any unusual may happen. He promised to put photos taken on the half day but I sill can not find in Facebook. It was disappointing day.

This was a fantastic trip that far exceeded my expectations. The guide was incredible courteous and helpful with a great attitude. He lead us to some amazing spots that looked like places straight off the best postcards you could ever find. I enjoyed the day so much I would consider doing this again despite the fact that there are so many other places to see. This trip is well worth it and you won't be disappointed. I highly recommend this trip and this operator as well. Marc from Hong Kong/USA

Such a great last day in Auckland. We had a good tour guide and we stopped to get some meat pies that were so good. Piha beach was amazing but the hiking to the top was rough but the views were so worth it

Let me just start by saying if you want to see Auckland in all its GLORY, book this tour with Black Sands. Shaun the CEO made this tour unforgettable and my absolute favorite part of my whole trip in Auckland. My only regret is I didn't have additional days to book another tour with him.

This is one of those trips where you made friends instead of feeling like you are in a standard commercialized tour. Shaun is a amazing guide and friend, a true local that have the required knowledge and safety awareness for his tour participants. The tour has a high level of customization, you get in the car and Shaun will tell you about the weather, the tide, the wind etc and how to make the most of the day. He took us to the ugliest place for lunch and it was spectacular. Shaun also took us to all these little spots only a true local knows, there were plenty of people at Piha and yet the places we went to we only saw a few people. It really does feel like a fun adventure day with a friend more than anything. I would highly recommend travelers with a moderately fitness level to go with this tour company, you will get the chance to push your limits safely. p.s. Shaun's got the best stories, there wasn't a moment of boredom throughout the trip! :

A great adventure trip to the West coast of Auckland. It was a small group which allows for a very special personal touch. We felt like we were getting an exclusive experience to an area most tourists aren't well aware of. Well worth it if you're in Auckland.
