  • I enjoyed this tour a lot, it was a great way of seeing the area around Auckland. Absolutely recommended!

  • I had a private tour since no one else signed up that day. I learned an incredible amount about volcanoes and saw incredible scenery. It was a good length for a tour and I highly recommend it, especially since it is so different from the other ones.

  • Mike is a friendly knowledgeable guide. The tour includes some hiking up, down and around numerous dormant volcanos. Mike makes a genuine effort to get to know his guests and his guests to know him. His van limits the size of the group to a very comfortable number. We would recommend this tour to others. A good way to see the Auckland area before or after a cruise.

  • Mike was amazing... informative, fun and passionate. The views were incredible. The uphill climbs were a bit challenging - but nothing this old and out of shape body couldn't handle. Mike made sure we got photos at every opportunity.
    I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Auckland... WELL worth it!

  • This was a half day tour that I was able to book on short notice. It was a wonderful introduction to Auckland, its geology and the early settlers.

  • A lovely way to spend a half day in Auckland and get to know Auckland beyond the city center. Mike, our tour guide, was friendly, courteous, and extremely knowledgeable. You will learn an amazing amount about geology, natural history, the Maori people, and the colonial period in New Zealand. The views were breathtaking, and the hiking is not overly strenuous. Highly recommended.

  • Very interesting and good guide.

  • So glad my friend and I went on this tour. Mike was a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable volcano guide, sharing his wisdom about their history and some general knowledge about the Maori people. Every volcano seemed so special to him and that admiration and respect imparted itself to us. The Auckland vistas were breathtaking and Mike also took a few photos of us, demonstrating his familiarity with cameras, be they SLRs or cellphone. The shots he took were nicely composed and in the most opportune spots. One quirky thing happened on Mangere Mountain the cows became very active and vocal and all hurriedly assembled in one area. We weren't quite sure what this unusual occurrence was about, but it was fascinating to watch. This tour is well worth five hours of your time to learn about volcanos, soak up the vistas, and get some splendid photographic mementos.

  • Fantastic opportunity to learn about the volcanoes of Auckland and see amazing views of the city, islands and mountain ranges. Mike our guide is very well informed on the subject and the history of Auckland, including really interesting information on the Maori and British settlements around the area.... the tour is very well paced and makes for a great day outdoors to see and learn more about Auckland, it's volcanoes and history.. not to be missed.

  • Since I had been to Auckland before I wanted to do something a little different. Auckland is built on 55 volcanoes and we toured 6 of the main ones. It's a good way to see all of the outlying areas of Auckland and surrounding waters.. Our guide was very versed in the history of the volcanoes as well as the Maori relationship to them. The only issue was that the tour had been oversold so we left late after two of the people agreed to take the afternoon tour.
