Fantastic. Very well organized and executed. One of the best tours we took in New Zealand.
We weren't sure how this tour would take a full day, or the high ratings were because the site drew committed birdwatchers and, not falling into that category, we might not like it as much. But the island, and the volunteers, lived up to the reviews. Great walk for several hours with multiple lengths of walk available on arrival. We had a great day on the ferry ride and the island.
A unique Auckland experience that should not be missed. The volunteer guide from Supporters of Tiritiri Mantanga was excellent. Remarkably knowledgeable about the flora and fauna. While we saw considerable wildlife, be aware this is not a zoo and so the birds can be hard to spot although the guide was very helpful in spotting them.
Wonderful day. Saw so many birds. The guided walk was well worth doing as we saw and found out so much more than walking around on our own. Thoroughly recommend. Going on the boat was great too
This was a wonderful day. It started with a very nice ferry ride to the island where we were met with a wonderful group of volunteers. They kept the groups small and we had 1 volunteer for 4 people. The trail walk was filled with listening to and finding very interesting birds and our volunteer her name was Penny was extremely knowledgeable about the island and the birds. Once the walk was over, we visited the lovely gift shop and took another path back to the shore where we met the ferry for the return trip. If you want to get away for the day and be somewhere not too many people are, this is the perfect tour.
A lot to explore if you love wildlife
This is a fantastic experience to hear from the expert but volunteer guide and also the 'ranger' about all the amazing work and accomplishments at the island, not to mention seeing all the birds and foliage for whom all the work is aimed. It was a great day learning about so many different types of wildlife and how it's being protected on scenic Tiritiri. We all saw and learned so much! Everyone was knowledgeable and clear, and the gift shop was an interesting one, too! Thanks for a great outing!
We had a superb volunteer guide! Roger was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. Priceless experience with the real birds of Tiritiri Matangi on a perfect day!!
The closest place to Paradise you will ever get! A beautiful uninhabited island providing the best opportunity to see some spectacular and rare endemic new zealand birds - we were guided around the island by a botanically knowledgable lady who allowed us the opportunity to stop and look at the birdlife and scenery as and when we wanted. If you are a birder this a unique chance to see species such as Stitchbird, Saddleback, Takahe and Kokako in their natural surroundings and at close quarters. For others it provides the chance to explore a fascinating and unspoilt island and see the amazing effort New Zealand expends protecting their special wildlife and the value they place on biodiversity. A lesson to us all!
Fantastic trip. Well organised, great tour guide, beautiful ferry ride and Tiritiri Matangi island is amazing.
