Two day trip with Milestone Tours, you will see the best in the shortest time and get the some of the most wonderful pieces on the northen island. Although it is very compact and time is short this will be good thing to if you got limited time in the Auckland area.

Initially many thanks for taking time to submit this review. I'm delighted that at the second attempt a volcano was, this time, unable to put off your trip to New Zealand! Your feedback is very much appreciated and it's good to know we've got the balance of content and pace about right with this tour. Thanks again for choosing Milestone... More

We booked a tour to the Bay of Islands via email a week before our arrival in Auckland, New Zealand. Gavin from Milestone responded quickly to answer our questions and confirm our booking. Gavin picked us up on schedule in a clean comfortable van along with two other couples. He was an excellent guide and explained numerous things about New... More

It was great pleasure both working with you to 'tie down' your itinerary and then showing you both a few of North Island's highlights - including our marine visitors.

We were looking for a tour to the Waitomo Glow Worm caves near Auckland. We selected Milestone based on the reviews we found on Trip Advisor. We were extremely satisfied with our tour and wouldn't have changed a thing. We were on a cruise ship so had limited time but Gavin made sure every minute was filled. The caves were... More

Let me echo what I said earlier and reconfirm that it was a real pleasure having your whole 'crew' on board. We're also hugely grateful for your feedback. It's especially gratifying to know that the tour we did together was one of the highlights of your vacation. Many thanks again for choosing Milestone for your shore excursion from Auckland. More

The proprietor, Gavin, was accessible by email and extremely responsive to my wife's many inquiries prior to the trip. As there was a marathon the day our ship arrived, she emailed him and he arranged to park a couple of blocks away, then met us at the gangway and took us to the van. He was a consumate professional, extremely... More

We were immediately impressed by Gavin’s knowledge, particularly of New Zealand's fauna and flora. The waterfall, caves, thermal pools and Maori village all far exceeded our expectations. The accommodation in Taupo, with its views over the lake to the mountains was simply stunning. Gavin was very easy going and flexible and made the whole tour a great experience. We loved... More

Two day tour in September with GAvin Oliver, north island. Was recommended by another top rated operator that couldn't accommodate us. Couldn't have been better: fun, informative, relaxed. Gavin's just a great guy. Get him to start telling jokes. Best tour we've ever taken.

On a Milestone Tours half-day trip around Auckland, we traveled through many places that we'd never have gotten to on our own. Highlights included Mt. Eden volcano, West Haven Marina, someone jumping off the Sky Tower and the fancy mansions on Paritai Drive. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly and our guide Mary was super!
