By far the BEST tour I had in New Zealand. The guides were incredibly funny and engaging. I signed-up for the tour by myself, and the guides went above and beyond to make me feel included in the group. You learn so much about the ecology and cultural history of New Zealand without feeling like you're listening to a lecture. It's obvious that the tour guides are passionate about this area and love sharing it with visitors.
This was a great way to get out of the city. The black sand beach was beautiful. We had time to walk around and take photos. I never felt rushed. The driver was informative and super funny. The hike to the waterfall was super easy for me, but I am an avid hiker. It's pretty easy going though and worth seeing the beautiful waterfall. Great trip all around!
Spectacular! Shawn was excellent. We packed a bunch of walking into 6 hours. Do this trip!!
This tour was great. Dawn was our guide and Goeff was the driver. They were a great combination of knowledge a land humor. The views were magnificent. We got to walk in the rainforest to a waterfall. We got to walk on the beach, put our feet in the Tasman Sea and get out of the city.
Great experience with very knowledgeable guides who added to the enjoyment of the day
Enjoyed very much our first day Auckland. Bus driver very knowledgeable and humorous. Was a great start to our vacation.
This was a wonderful tour. Our guide was very helpful and knowledgeable and the views were stunning. Remember to bring your camera and good walking shoes our guide chose to do a harder walk after all, so it was a bit tougher than expected, but well worth the effort.
This outing was a lot of fun. We got to trek through the woods and see a waterfall that was over 100 feet tall. We also got to see the black sand beach. The guides were interesting and informative. They even broke out the tea and cookies after the hike. The hotel pick up and drop off was very convenient. It was a very good use of the afternoon.
Went to all the best places! Staff were so friendly and full of knowledge! Wasn't rushed and we always had enough time to take as many photos as we wanted. Would recommended it to anyone, great value for money!
This was one of the better tours of my trip. Our tour guide Sean was AWESOME He gave so much history about NZ that I came away a better feel for New Zealand's History and peoples. Very easy to talk to accommodating. Would refer to friends and family.
A fabulous afternoon with knowledgeable guide. Really enjoyed everything about the day. The beach was fantastic ands the rainforest walk was great. Wish I'd taken the full day.
Great guides, really showed and explained the real New Zealand. Thank you to the local tour company
I was very impressed with my guide. He was calm and professional in spite of the cats he was herding.
Super tour. Wonderful forest, amazing beach. Friendly tour guys. Learned a lot and had great fun.

Thanks to Doug, this was excellent tour that provided great insight into the flora and fauna of the rainforest. The views from the north and south harbor overlooks were magnificent. Piha, with its black iron beach and stunning scenery, was a standout. As an educator, I truly appreciated the handout at the end of the tour which highlighted the sights of the day!
I loved our tour guide, he was well informed and came ready to share so many jokes..dad type jokes, my favourite! We saw so many beautiful sights and walked away with endless knowledge. We took our time and enjoyed everything to the max! Thank you!
For a five-hour tour, it was packed with sights and information. Loved the forest walk, which combined history and nature. The driver John was excellent and very informative.
Just loved it, was more than I expected. Dave our tour guide was full of information, not only about the tour but recommended places to eat whilst we were in Auckland. Loved the wilderness and the hike to the waterfall was worth the walk.
Our tour guide Wayne, was very knowledgeable and fun. He enjoys what he does and been doing it for 25 yrs according to him. I believe you, Wayne. We had fun though it was somewhat wet from a little rain. Was well worth it.
I loved the tour. Our guide was friendly and full of stories. We saw a beautiful waterfall and beach, and I would highly recommend this trip for anyone with limited time in Auckland who wants to see more of the island!

Great tour! Pick up was on time. We visited the Waitakere Ranges lookout, had a quick walk to a nice waterfall, went to the black sand beach and went for a walk through a rainforest. Plenty of time for photos at each stop and walks were quite easy to suit to all fitness levels. Definitely recommend
Fantastic experience. Incredibly knowledgeable guide. We absolutely loved it. My wife and I agreed this was the best thing we did in Auckland. Book without hesitation.
