Private Tour: Bay of Islands Day Trip from Auckland"Our private tour of the Bay of Islands from Auckland was all we hoped for and more! Our praise is 100% credited to our outstanding guide, Mike! We had the great fortune to not only have him pick us up at the airport, but also be assigned to be our guide/driver the next day for the tour. Mike was a great driver and a super human being with a great personality and loads of information that we found very interesting. He did everything possible to insure our comfort and enjoyment. Indeed he had to go "above and beyond" because one of us left our "purse" behind at a refreshment stop and did not realize that we had done so for several hours until we reached where we were to board our boat for a cruise of the islands. Mike offered to drive all the way back and get it while we were on the cruise, but luckily his sharp thinking and quick solutions allowed him to call the exact stop we had made and discovered that the owner of the cafe had found our lost item and would hold it for us until we could return. We didn't miss anything on the tour and Mike made us so happy and relieved to retrieve the purse with all our money, credit cards, etc in tact. We enjoyed the day with Mike and commend him highly. He is an asset to his company for sure. Mike gets a 10+++ out of 10 rating and 5+ stars!"..."
