Worth it. The tour guide ,I think his name is Nic,he was pleasant and good.My husband and I enjoyed it very much
An excellent comprehensive tour of Auckland and the near-by suburbs. Comfortable 11 person van. Our guide David was extremely knowledgeable and helpful and responsive. Scenic, pleasant lunch stop .
This is an excellent tour for a first time visitor to get a feel for the sights in and around Auckland. Our tour guide, Nick, couldn't have been better at keeping us entertained with his stories and descriptions of what we were viewing. During the tour, he overheard me talking about a bad experience with a taxi driver when we disembarked from our cruise ship. I was worried about taking another taxi to the airport when we were leaving in several days. He then offered to pick up my wife and I and drive us to the airport on his day off. And he did it for a smaller charge than any of our other options. He didn't want us to leave Auckland with any type of bad impressions.
Great tour led by a great person.
Through no fault of Nick or the tour operator, it poured rain all day during the tour. We still had an enjoyable experience.
I would highly recommend this tour, especially if its your first time in Auckland and/or you have limited time there. Dave, our driver/guide and company owner was incredible! First of all, he is a great/safe driver. He is also a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. The company is professional, well-equipped and efficient. You wont be sorry if you book this tour.

David the driver tour guide was the best. The sights amazing. A very good day to see Auckland
David was fabulous. We were one of four couples in the tour van and David went above and beyond to show us all the sites of Auckland. We could not happier. He's a delightful guy, easy to follow, fun-loving a a great person to spend the day with. Could not be happier!
We had the best day with David and our small group. The weather was cloudy and a bit rainy but we still couldn't help but fall in love with Auckland!
We learned ad saw so much---great value. Couldn't have been happier!
Loved, loved this experience! Our family of 5 ages 11 and up enjoyed every part of this tour! We were able to arrange pick/up and drop off very easily with our location. We got a terrific overview of the city with a very personalized touch from our tour guide, Nick. He remembered what was important to each passenger on the journey, and then made sure to point out along the way. High attention to detail, very nice wine tasting, amazing lunch. Definitely the best way to see and experience the Auckland area! Worth it.
This tour was fabulous. David, our tour guide from Auckland Scenic Tours was wonderful. He is very knowledgeable about Auckland and took us on a comprehensive tour of the city. We could not have asked for a better day. This tour was definitely a highlight of our visit to this beautiful city.
This was our best tour ever. A warm greeting got the group mixing right from the start. The information provided and the enthusiasm of the guide to please was exceptional. We where taken to all the best sites, many of which other tours do not cover. Photos where provided for from the very best vantage points.
It was an absolute pleasure to spend the full day on the bus and to walk away totally satisfied and in love with Auckland. We cannot recommend this particular tour high enough as a must do in Auckland.
Thanks ever so much,
Terry and Brenda
Cant rave enough about this trip, David our driver went above and beyond our expectations taking us to places a lot of the bigger buses are unable to access. His local knowledge and enthusiasm for the city comes across in the tour.
An excellent day touring Auckland and surrounds. David was a friendly and well informed guide. Comfortable vehicle and very professional and friendly service. Visited some lovely spots with great views over the city such as One Tree Hill and Victoria Hill. Lunch in a very nice restaurant in Auckland's wine growing region. Most enjoyable! Visit to Soljans winery was nice - they make a very enjoyable pinot gris. Wish we had bought more as it is not available in Australia. All in all a great day spent exploring a lovely city with David. Would not hesitate to highly recommend this company. Look forward to returning to Auckland in the not too distant future and would most definately consider another tour with this company. Thanks David for a great day.

This is a gem. Our tour guide DAve who is also the owner operator took us on his clean modern minibus all across town to sites the big buses can't get to. We got in and out quickly missing the traffic jam. We had a wonderful sampler of all the highlights in town but also the western part of the black sand beaches. Lovely wine tasting and a stop for lunch where the locals eat. Highly recommend it! 10 out of 10!!
Great small group experience, saw all the sights and our guide was awesome. Unfortunately, it was overcast and rainy in some areas so we could not get out and enjoy the view.
This was so perfect! I was the only person on this tour so I had a private full-day scenic tour!! How lucky I felt. My guide was wonderful - he was very knowledgeable and personable. He took pictures for me so I could be in them and was really nice. I highly recommend this tour.
We enjoyed this tour immensely. Our driver/tour guide Dave Keenan was very knowledgeable about New Zealand and its history and he made the tour very enjoyable with his anecdotes. Highly recommended.
Can't tell you how wonderful this day was. Our guide - owner of the company - showed us so many amazing sites. Stoped at a beautiful restaurant for lunch, visited a winery where we met the owner. We even went over our allotted time as there were so many sites to see. Auckland is a beautiful city. If you want to see all Auckland has to offer, please book with this company. It's truly a good one!
Spent an enjoyable day on a small group tour 5 people touring Auckland and surrounds. Our guide was very personable and informed. We stopped for lunch at a well-know local spot, River's Edge, where the Prime Minister was having lunch, an added bonus. As we discussed various topics, one of which was wine, the guide added a stop at a local vineyard for a tasting. He was correct, each of us purchased wine to have for dinner at our respective locations. We enjoyed many beautiful views of the shore line from high, as well as the city sights.
Auckland Tour was outstanding, the best in the 3 weeks of touring New Zealand and Australia.
This tour was excellent and long. We visited all sides of aukland going places big buses could not go. Houses and scenery was terrific as was the commentary. Did wine tasting and had a great lunch.
Great tour of Auckland. I talk to other people that did different tours and this tour sounded best! David is so enthusiastic he makes it fun! He took us to places off the beaten track and offered expert commentaries on what we were seeing and what to expect next. Excellent value for money and the best way to see Auckland. He made us a reservation at a nice place for lunch and fit everything into our tight schedule.
As others have commented this tour was extensive and we'll done. Our driver/tour guide David puts tremendous energy and personal knowledge into a day well spent. I highly recommend this tour and be sure to request David!
David Smith is the best guide..no question..he knows Auckland and provides an insiders look at the city. He is funny, personable, entertaining and friendly and goes out of his way to make sure that you see all that Auckland has to offer. He pointed out the restaurants and pubs to visit while staying in Auckland most not in tourist spots. He ran a restaurant at one time so he knows the business. He even personalized the tour for us as we wished to see more neighborhoods. He shows you vistas that other tours do not go to or do not know about. He also has made a hobby of photography..so he can help frame a shot. All in all, this is the best tour we have been on during our time in New Zealand.
