  • This tour was amazing!

  • Spent an enjoyable day on a small group tour 5 people touring Auckland and surrounds. Our guide was very personable and informed. We stopped for lunch at a well-know local spot, River's Edge, where the Prime Minister was having lunch, an added bonus. As we discussed various topics, one of which was wine, the guide added a stop at a local vineyard for a tasting. He was correct, each of us purchased wine to have for dinner at our respective locations. We enjoyed many beautiful views of the shore line from high, as well as the city sights.

  • Auckland Tour was outstanding, the best in the 3 weeks of touring New Zealand and Australia.

  • This tour was excellent and long. We visited all sides of aukland going places big buses could not go. Houses and scenery was terrific as was the commentary. Did wine tasting and had a great lunch.

  • Great tour of Auckland. I talk to other people that did different tours and this tour sounded best! David is so enthusiastic he makes it fun! He took us to places off the beaten track and offered expert commentaries on what we were seeing and what to expect next. Excellent value for money and the best way to see Auckland. He made us a reservation at a nice place for lunch and fit everything into our tight schedule.
    Highly recommended!

  • As others have commented this tour was extensive and we'll done. Our driver/tour guide David puts tremendous energy and personal knowledge into a day well spent. I highly recommend this tour and be sure to request David!

  • Saw everything that was possible to see in one day.

  • Nice trip turned out to only be My Husband and I on the trip, talk about small group. Saw everything there was to see that we couldn't walk to. Went to the other side of the Island to see the Gannet colony was really windy. The driver was very friendly and showed us everything we could get in in a day. A long day though an hour shorter would have been good.Would recommend.

  • David Smith is the best guide..no question..he knows Auckland and provides an insiders look at the city. He is funny, personable, entertaining and friendly and goes out of his way to make sure that you see all that Auckland has to offer. He pointed out the restaurants and pubs to visit while staying in Auckland most not in tourist spots. He ran a restaurant at one time so he knows the business. He even personalized the tour for us as we wished to see more neighborhoods. He shows you vistas that other tours do not go to or do not know about. He also has made a hobby of photography..so he can help frame a shot. All in all, this is the best tour we have been on during our time in New Zealand.

  • This is THE ONLY tour to do to see all Auckland has to offer and then some. David took us to places off the beaten track and offered expert commentaries on what we were seeing and what to expect next. Excellent value for money and the best way to see Auckland first so that you can follow up on places to re-visit.
    Thoroughly recommended.
