    Michael is a kind, gracious and passionate person. Loved the whole experience. In such a short period, Michael was able to impart to us comprehensive information about the city, its culture, and its people. Good job Michael!!!

    Tour guide Michael was excellent very knowledgeable and friendly. We arranged to be picked up by our cruise ship. This made Michael late due to extensive roadworks around the port area, causing him to be late for each subsequent pick, up obviously not his fault.
    This was a small group in a comfortable, clean vehicle. The tour itself covered all the major sights in and around Auckland with Michael giving a constant commentary. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Auckland.

    Michael was a very good and knowledgeable driver

    He provided a very comprehensive tour of Auckland

    Most of the tour was driving through the various areas of the city but other than climbing mount Eden the stops made were only to briefly take photos

    At mount Eden he did make an alternative ride to the top to those unable to walk up which was excellent as my wife was able to still see the views from the top

    Mike, our tour guide for the Half-day Discover Auckland City Sightseeing Tour was awesome! We highly recommend him and this tour! It was very enjoyable.

    Super awesome tour!! First off, the guide was so patient and flexible. One of the people in our group just landed and and jumped out of the cab as the tour bus arrived ... get this he waited an extra five minutes so he wouldnt miss the tour!! He was also super considerate of the groups needs making unplanned pit stops for coffee and ice cream which was so thoughtful because the entire bus had just arrived that morning and were still acclimating. The guide was so knowledgeable and included some of his secret spots and had special access worked out for some of the group who weren't as active. We ALL got phenomenal photos ops of the city skyline. Hands down a must do!

    Great short small group intro to Auckland, including a visit to Mt Eden and some fantastic views of the city from the other side of the bridge.

  • 10-Feb-2020

    Although our ship was delayed in port, Michael ensured we had a thoroughly enjoyable and informative tour of Auckland. Recommended for sure.

  • 03-Feb-2020

    Michael's cheerful disposition and personal narrative made this tour among the best I've experienced. He was especially accommodating of guest requests.

    MIchael was a very knowledgeable and entertaining hour. We were picked up right on time.
    I feel we got a good tour of the area outside the city center.
