The tour was a wonderful escape from the city. The trip from East to West, the Pacific ocean to the Tasman sea, was filled with beautiful overlooks, a waterfall, a black sand beach and an easy, very informative nature hike. We were even served with tea, coffee and cookies at our beach stop.

We really enjoyed our trip to Waitakere Ranges and Piha Beach! The pick-up was on time, the tour bus was comfortabel, the guide was great !, we learned a lot about New Zealand's flora and fauna which was very relevant for the rest of our trip and both Waitakere Ranges and Piha Beach are beautiful areas to see. We would definitely recommend this trip!

Fantastic tour our guides Shaun and Dawn were fabulous, made me feel immediately welcome and were extremely knowledgeable about the local history. The bus was air conditioned and comfortable, and had just the right number of people to feel friendly. We started off by stopping at a bakery to pick up some lunch, and then went on to the national park to admire the view and go on a very informative forest walk. Shaun was very knowledgeable about the different trees and plants and was full of interesting facts and stories. We also stopped by the stunning Piha beach and had tea, coffee, cold drinks and home made cookies baked by Dawn. We were also kept entertained on the journey with interesting stories about the history of the area. Overall excellent tour and I would highly recommend. Thank-you to Shaun and Dawn for your excellent guiding!

Our guide and driver David and Bryan could not have been nicer. The places we visited the Black beeches and the various forests
Were both beautiful and interesting.
Their knowledge of the ecology of the area we visited and the plants was impressive.
For me it was it was a real treat. On several tours I used to ask questions about the plants here I got very detailed answers. A real treat for any plant lover!
They surprised us with a lovely high tea/coffee picnic .
Was a great day highly recommend it.

Tony was most knowledgeable.
The hotel pickup, the small minibus for the 8 of us, was most comfortable. We travelled through the beautiful western Waitakere Ranges, stopping at Titiranga at The Mill Bakery for a takeaway lunch, the Arataki Visitor Centre, Kitekite Falls to Piha and light refreshmeets.

We started our week trip to NZ with this half day tour. Our guide, Alex, was perfect in narrating our trip. We had a bit of rain, but that didn't distract from the beautiful scenery of this country. The hike was educational and really good. Pretty easy hike, too. Stop at Piha beach was my highlight! So awesome! This was a very relaxing tour and a great way to way to get oriented to NZ. Loved it.

This was my second time taking this trip, the first was in 2014. The second trip did not disappoint. Mike and Alan were excellent guides whose commentary kept us informed and entertained. A relaxing trip through to the west coast with amazing views along the way. The easy bushwalk led by Alan and Mike who shared their extensive knowledge of the bush was a highlight. Would highly recommend this trip to anyone.

Wayne was our guide, and he has a wealth of information which he passes on in a very sympathetic manner, tuning in to his audience. Loved the walk through the bush, and his tea and ANZAC biscuits were great

This was an outstanding tour. I wanted to get a flavor of the country beyond the city of Auckland and this tour hit the mark. The guides Erin and Shawn were knowledgeable, friendly and kept us on track without making us feeling rushed. Beautiful, diverse scenery, plenty of opportunities for photos, and very good food from the bakery we stopped at. Well worth the time and money!

I took this tour on the same day I arrived in Auckland from Chicago. It was raining like mad when I arrived at the airport but by the time I went on the tour it had stopped. Because of the rain the waterfall was raging and beautiful. The river/creeks were lovely as well. We stopped at a bakery on the way and I saw some roosters at the nearby cafe. I like animals what can i say? Others on the tour said the bakery goods were very good too. Later we took a hike through some of the woods and saw some of the protected species of trees and other flora native to New Zealand. We were given a nice tea and some local honey on biscuits later which was a very nice ending to our tour. Loved this tour, professional tour company and guides. Thank you for making my trip to New Zealand a fun one!

I called the morning of the tour to confirm the pickup location and was told I was likely going to be the only one on the tour that day. It turned out to be true. The tour guide was very accommodating and was able to show me stops and sites they usually don't include in the standard tour. Huge thanks to the tour company for seeing the tour through even though they only had one passenger that day - it was amazing!

A great day tour of west Auckland, well paced with a short walk in the rain forest. The tour guides were very helpful and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend this for anyone with a free day to spend in Auckland.
