    This was a wonderful way to take in all the sights and understand the layout of this beautiful country. Our driver was so fun and personable, it made the trip even better. It was as a perfect way to fit everything in on a short trip.

    We had a great day with Bobby. We expierenced beaches, rainforest and parks. Bobby was very informative about Maori culture and history.

    We had an Auckland drive around with an airport transfer driver rather than a professional guide. While she was pleasant enough, it was not a tour that enlightened us with the city and countrside highlights. We had to ask questions to find out details. Stick with Tours by Locals.

    Very Nice tour of the city. Able to see some interesting sites and get a good feel for the city. Would of like a little more history of the city and its foundation in order to understand why Auckland became the largest city in New Zealand.

    Our tour operator was very knowledgeable about the city of Auckland and the surrounding areas. He was also very agreeable to stopping for photos and walking when we wanted to see the sights.
    We highly recommend this tour!

    Die Stadtrundfahrt mit Ersteigung des Vulkans Maungawau sowie der Strand von Piha war sehr beeindruckend. Unser deutsche Guide Nikolai war mehr als nett, kompetent und Ortskundig. Sehr zu empfehlen.

    We saw a lot of Auckland with this tour and our tour guide, Ray, was great. I rated it 4 stars, instead of 5 stars, because we spent a lot more time in the vehicle than expected. We were hoping to have more stops where we could get out and see things.
