We viewed several areas, mountains, beaches, city, etc.. We hiked up to a beautiful waterfall. He has a great "office", right by a stream... More

What a lovely time! I really enjoyed the hours spent on this tour. Good car, great driver/guide (Terry). Such a pleasant person makes everything worthwhile. Relaxed, informative. It was a high point in our 3 week New Zealand/Australia trip. I do recommend it.

Great way to get an overview of the city. Terry is a fantastic host; lots of little tips and hints for you to take on board when planning the rest of your time in Auckland. Great meal tips too! Thanks Terry.

Terry showed me a great view of the city (from Mt Eden, since I had not been yet) and gave a great explanation of the suburbs of Auckland and what they are known for. He's also big... More
