LOVED tours with owner and guide Ewald. He is very knowledgeable, and has incredible customer service. We went on a couple of tours with them, including the famous Rotorua tour. It far exceeded our expectations, and we would recommend it to anyone!

With too little time in Auckland we were determined to see "The Piano" beach. What we didn't know was that in a day this tour would also give us a fantastic introduction to NZ's natural wonders- the trees, the birds, the Maori culture, the history. We did get to walk barefoot on the black volcanic sand, but we also got... More

Following a bareboat charter sailing vacation in the Bay of Islands, my wife & I scheduled four days to visit Auckland. Staying at the Rendezvous Grand Hotel - conveniently located next to Aotea Square near shops, restaurants and museums/galleries in the City Centre - we wanted to see as much of the greater Auckland area as we could in a...

Ewald picked us up at our hotel (Crowne Plaza) and we were the only 2 people on his tour on April 2nd. He has a new, comfortable 11-seater van that he uses to show people around in. We had a half day tour ($80) which we felt was more than worth it especially since we had him all to ourselves.... More

All communication prior to arrival was by e-mail. Quick responses to all our inquiries. Ewald met us at the airport, helped to load our luggage and then took us on our tour. The Mercedes van was great for sightseeing. Large clean windows. Ewald was very personable and answered our continuous string of questions. I would definitely take any of his... More

We decided to book outside the cruise ship offerings for our whole NZ trip, which worked great at every stop. We have three children, which include two little ones. Flexibility and patience were critical to success. Mandy took us around in a very comfortable van to see the best sights of Auckland. We gave her essentially zero idea of what... More

We were met by Ewald near the cruise terminal and he introduced us to our guide for the day, Allen. I have seen Ewald reviewed here, but not Allen. His commentary and knowledge of the area significantly added to the day. Many guides know their stuff, but present it in a less than fresh manner. Allen was spot on about... More

We arrived in Auckland in January, having only 3 days there we wanted to make the most use of our time, we booked our tour with the Tourist information office, Ewald arrived a little late and apologised profusely, he had been let down by another booking. As we were they only 2 passengers that day we had an amazing 'private'... More

We ended our cruise in Auckland, and were starting to feel a little bit of the end-of-vacation blues where you start mentally turning away from the trip and focusing on "back-home". Auckland didn't strike us that favorably when we got off the ship (you start missing that buffet and your personal room attendant the second you step off the ship!!).... More
