    Our guide Sofia was one of the best we've ever had. She gave us so much information about the Maori history and language that brought the tour to life. The museum performance was a highlight, but really the whole day was wonderful.

    Our guide Keri was one in a million! We learned Maori culture through her wisdom throughout our 8 hours!

    Very nice tour with informative guide. Cultural dance show was nice, museum was awesome! Lunch was delicious and comfortable outdoor seating at restaurant. Beaches and waterfall and local scenery were breathtaking. Tasting honey was a nice touch.

    Absolutely the BEST tour! Sofia was a real gem! We took this tour Me, twin 15 yr old daughters and we all agreed this is one of the best tours we have ever been on and we have done a lot of them!. Comfortable van with snacks!, amazing tour around including beaches, waterfalls and Maori legends/history, delicious lunch and gorgeous scenery. They even picked us up and dropped us off at our airbnb apartment! I would HIGHLY recommend this tour and Sofia, in particular!!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our full day Maori Tour which included a cultural performance and lunch.

    Hinauri our very friendly and knowledgeable guide, ably assisted by Vanessa, were so very attentive and looked after us very well from the start to the finish of an eight hour day. We saw so many fantastic sights and spectacular panoramic views around the beautiful city of Auckland and at the same time learned so much about Maori history and culture.

    All in all a great day. Interesting, memorable and most importantly good fun. I have no hesitation in recommending this tour to anybody who wants to see as much of Auckland as possible but only has a limited of time.

    Thank you Viator and Time Unlimited Tours - we had a great time.

    It was a really interesting way to see the city and learn about the culture. Sofia, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic to share her culture and city. It was nice to see the cultural performance but we would have liked more time in the museum. The particular day we went we were a solid 30-35 years younger than all the other guest. The guide did a nice job to ensure everyone had a pleasant experience.

    I loved our tour guide, Sofia. She was so sweet and thoughtful, full of knowledge, and I enjoyed Auckland so much more because of the tour and Sofia.

    A must do tour! We loved it, we wanted to visit a number of locations that weren’t accessible via public transport and this tour included them all. Ceillhe and Peter were fantastic and very knowledgeable. Ceillhe’s passsion and knowledge was impressive and really made sure we were well taken care of. Kia ora!

    This was an amazing experience. I would definitely go on tour again. The Maori guide was friendly, took us to a great restaurant and was very cognizant of the time effortlessly moving us from place to place without feeling rushed.

    This was one of the best tours we have ever taken. Nine hours of history, Maori legends, beautiful scenery and exciting presentations. The tour guide is the owner of the company and she was knowledgeable and entertaining. It was a pleasure to spend the day with her. She added some touches like the New Zealand tastings and the gift that were icing on the cake. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone who wants to see Auckland and hear about the Maori way of life. I'd love to take her other tours around New Zealand.
