We were very impressed with this tour. Michael is a one-man show who really knows his city and environs and even knows some secret places that 0ther tour operators either don’t know or can’t access.

Loved our tour guide, Michael. We had just arrived to Auckland from California and didn’t want anything too busy. Michael drove us all over Auckland, we stopped at various points of interest. He is a an excellent tour guide and quite funny!

This tour was delivered by one of the most well-informed personable guides we have had on holidays before now. Michael was a funny, friendly and a highly considerate man. The tour was a great introduction on our 1st day to this wonderful country. Highly recommend it. Diana and Mark, Newcastle Australia

Perfect Auckland Overview

If you are spending limited time in Auckland and want a quick overview, this tour is for you! Our guide, Mike, was personable and informative. We got off to a slow start due to his need to pick up cruise passengers from the very "under construction" dock area (a lot of the downtown is under construction). However, he did this with good humor and color commentary and we never felt rushed during the actual tour. This tour perfectly met our hopes.

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.
