I had the pleasure of going on the trip with Terry to Piha beach and a bush walking trip to the Kitekite falls. Terry takes the time to explain the region and its flora and fauna. His enthusiasm and love for the place is infectious and he allows the time to truly experience the place. I saw other tour groups... More

Terry--Thanks for a marvelous intro to the Auckland area's natural wonders with your Piha Beach and Rain Forest Day Tour. We cruised through quirky Auckland suburbs, gazed across the Waitakere Ranges, posed in a life-sized picture frame with mountain backdrop, and hiked a portion of the rain forest Hillary Trail. Then it was on to the wild west coast on... More

Absolute beauty. There were only three of us and we were treated like royalty. Terry took us in a new car and kept us informed all the way - even if some of the facts were more fiction you wanted to believe them. We saw Hot water beach, without the hot water because of high tides and strong waves. On... More

Terry is a real local and shows you the most incredible spots out there! He brings you to the KiteKite Falls (if you are fit, even to the top), all... More

I discovered beautiful landscapes and also I learnt more about NZ history and wild life. I had so much fun during this tour. And the guide tour... More

We booked on the one day Piha Beach Tour with a trip to Kitekite Falls. Terry, our guide, was so much fun, informative & keen to show us a taste of what West Auckland has to offer with Piha, Waitekere, pies & L&P! :) Now, I am far from the fittest person but Terry was not pushy-he was very kind...

This was an awesome tour, I really enjoyed it. Our guide Terry was very knowledgeable as well as a great photographer. I don't know what I enjoyed more the beach or swimming in the refreshing water at the waterfall! This is a must do tour! Thanks Terry & looking forward to hearing bout your Food Tour!
