We missed the tour. We waited an hour at our hotel pick up point, nobody showed up. Need very important information very first than last.
Don’t book this tour no show

The tour company did not turn up & were not able to be contacted. I am in the process of obtaining a refund. Check similar reviews on Trip Advisor (i.e. no show). Don’t book this tour

I can’t add photos as I have none - the reason? The bus didn’t turn up! I waited for 45 minutes in the dark, alone! Rang the tour provider and the line was unavailable! I only had two nights in Auckland and this wasted one of them - I still haven’t heard anything from them by way of an apology! Absolutely shocking service! They took my money too and I haven’t had a refund yet! Don’t book it!
No show and non-responsive. DO NOT BOOK!

The driver never showed up at my hotel pick-up point. I tried to contact the operator, but never got a response. My hotel's concierge was likewise unable to contact them (the phone number appeared to be disconnected). After 45 minutes of waiting, I finally bailed. DO NOT BOOK THIS TOUR! It's a rip-off!
Your didn’t show up.

They never showed up. Waited until 9:15. Guest services at the hotel called and it was a discontinued number. I sent several texts and no response. Now I’ve got to get my money back. Can’t do that until we get home feb 14. They had the correct hotel and address to pick us up at.
Ripped off in Aukland , City Lights Tour

Our “bro” was a no show. Our hotel concierge tried calling the local phone number to contact the vender and it was disconnected. I emailed the vender with no response. I have submitted a request for a refund thru viator and expect my money back
Operator doesn’t show up
Rose_M, Sept 2022
The operator never responded to texts or calls and just stood me up in front of my hotel for 40 minutes. Now waiting for a full refund. Very dissatisfied.
Terrible phone number, host brother never answered the call.

As I said, the driver did not show up. I waited from 6.-7pm. I need the refund. Thanks. I was not happy at all.
a different perspective

i wound up with a private tour - by Wati (Tour Bro). he was very accommodating & informative; made the evening truly worthwhile. you get a different perspective at night, plus you can get around with less traffic.
Great Night Tour - A MUST DO when visiting Auckland
Wendy_S, Nov 2019
See the night side of Auckland, it all happens when the sun goes down and the lights come on. Auckland is such a beautiful city in the night, sign up for this tour and see the city, go on top of Mt Eden for a 360 deg view , and enjoy the delightful Watty as he drives you around and gives a commentary. Highly recommended. Thank you Watty for this great tour.
