What people are saying about Auckland

Our guide was exceptional, our experience was memorable.

Louise, our guide, was incredibly inviting and informative throughout the entirety of our trip. We spent about three hours driving through beautiful countryside learning about New Zealand’s history, agriculture, and Maori culture. We went to both Wai o Tapu Geothermal Park and the geothermal park/Maori culture park at Te Puia. The former was beautiful, and Louise made sure we knew how these geothermal areas were used by the Maori. Te Puia was an amazing experience, as we were graciously invited to participate in a welcome ceremony and performance, and toured the on-site school that teaches traditional arts and culture to new generations. It was extremely interesting (and heartening) to learn about the Maori and see the work being done to preserve their traditions. Walking through the rest of the park, we even got to see a geyser erupt amidst the smoking craters and pools. The day was extremely memorable, and our guide was one of the most pleasant people we met.

If you’re thinking of doing it, grab the chance!

I was a bit nervous going on a trip like this because I would be going alone, but as soon as I arrived I knew I made a great choice! Raphael was a brilliant driver, so friendly and kept us entertained from Auckland to Hobbiton with some really interesting commentary about New Zealand. Danny (Danilo) was also an amazing guide round Hobbiton itself, a true credit to the organisation! The whole trip was so smooth - the only downside is it didn’t last longer! I could have easily stayed there for a week it was so fun! Thank you so so much for organising this!

Wonderful tour! Enjoyed the scenic views :)

The tour is exactly how I want tours to be - not so much on the touristy areas but more on the scenic spots and a bit of history here and there. Thanks to Michael for being a good host! I was choosing between hop on hop off explorer bus and this tour, and I’m so glad I chose the latter. Good job to Michael and best of luck!

Experience not near as striking as photos, but worth it!

I went on the Waitomo Glowworm Day Tour from Auckland. It was a nice drive through the countryside on the way to the caves. The cave experience is maybe 30 minutes tops, and the glowworms are not near as striking as the photos. It's a long way to go for a short period, but it was worth it for the unique experience.

Busdriver (Sue) and Tourguide have been so perfect!

I really loved this tour! Our Busdriver Sue was funny and so lovely! I got sooo much information about NZ and Hobbiton. The tour was well organised and Hobbiton guide Vanessa was really funny. I had one of the best days of my trip there. Big thanks and I highly recommend this tour!
