Wonderful experience getting to know the surrounding Auckland area. During the tour there was a fountain of information shared with us regarding the native history of the Maori tribes. Highly recommended!

I almost enjoyed the walk through the winter Gardens more, to be honest. The museum was well laid out and the kid's area in the Science museum is just breathtaking!

Was definitely 100% better than we expected, felt we see a lot in a day, Mike was an excellent tour guide and driver.. Great value for money tour

A small group of 6 adults. We had a great guide in Sophie. She was entertaining, knowledgeable, a great driver and a kind considerate person

Wonderful experience. Very easy to navigate around with lots of staff to help send us in the right direction if needed.
