Tour guide ( David) with...
William_M, Apr 2023
Tour guide ( David) with Danny was GREAT. Small group made it very easy to get in and out of places easily. Would definitely recommend this tour.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Thank you. We make no secret of the fact our 4-Hour Tour of Auckland is the most comprehensive available. We want to bring our city alive in front of your eyes as we unfold the stunning scenic beauty, the rich history and culture and our fauna and flora. Is there any better places to be in Auckland that aloft 2 of our 53 volcanoes (all extinct) for the most spectacular views. With our 12 and 15 seater Mercedes, we go to places that the big buses physically cannot access due to the topography of Auckland. Our tour is the perfect tour if you are arriving on a cruise ship as we will pick you up dockside and return you back to your cruise ship as we did for you. It was a pleasure hosting you. Thank you for the lovely comments and choosing our tour.
Auckland City & Surrounds Tour

A very comprehensive tour of Auckland by a knowledgeable and accomodating driver guide. Despite some rain and heavy traffic, David the guide was able to get us to places which we wouldn’t have known about.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you. We pride ourselves on our 8-Hour Auckland Tour being the most comprehensive day Tour of Auckland available. Add in one of our very knowledgeable guides and you will have a very special day as we showcase the stunning scenic beauty, culture, history, fauna and flora of Auckland. It was our privilege hosting you
Great way to see Auckland in 4 hrs
David_W, Mar 2023
A great way to see the most of Auckland in 4 hours. We left and returned on time and Mike our driver and guide was excellent.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you. Yes, we pick up and drop off at the port. Sometimes cruise ships are only in Auckland for a limited time. Our 4-Hour Shore Excursion is the perfect way to be picked up at the port right beside your cruise ship, shown the highlights of Auckland in the most comprehensive 4-Hour Auckland Tour available and then returned back dockside to your cruise ship. Thank you for your lovely comments about and tour and our tour guide and for choosing our tour.
Great tour with Mike!
Tracey_B, Jan 2023
We were picked up at the cruise port and found the tour informative and fun! Mike was so accommodating throughout the day with bathroom stops, picture shots and a ton of info about Auckland.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Yes, we pick up and drop off right beside your cruise ship at the cruise port. We want your experience to be as seamless as possible as you experienced. Then, let one of our highly knowledgeable guides show you our fabulous city. We loved your comments about one of our guides. Thank you for this and thank you sincerely for choosing our tour.
Mike gave us a comprehensive tour and answered any questions we had. He was knowledgeable about the area.

Climbing on top of the hill to view the area, It was stenous but when we got to the top it was a breathtaking view.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Is there any better way to see the stunning beauty of Auckland than from an elevated vantage point? We think not. Our tour enabled you to experience the stunning and breathtaking views. You would have marvelled at this. We appreciated your comment "comprehensive tour." We make no secret of the fact that our 4-Hour tour of Auckland is the most comprehensive available; ideal for guests like yourself on a cruise ship who only have a short stay in Auckland and want to see as much as possible. Our tour does exactly that. Then in the hands of one of our knowledgeable guides, as you mention, and you truly experience the stunning scenic landscape, rich history and culture of Auckland. Thank you for choosing our tour
