We are a family of four who recently relocated to Auckland for work and wanted to orientate ourselves quickly, so we booked a tour with Paul and had a fabulous morning, visiting the beautiful gardens near the War Museum, climbing Mount Eden, driving up through the park around One Tree Hill etc. It was a great way to start to get to know the city. Paul is a warm, friendly guide who is a mine of information about everything Auckland! We came away full of ideas and tips on where to visit next, days out etc. Book this tour - you will not regret it!

Thank you for your kind review. It was a real pleasure hosting you. Sometimes Auckland can be a bit of a maze, so having a local get you around the place is so much easier. Great to have you here. Paul.

Great way to see some of the best of Auckland if you are short of time. We were Paul's only passengers this morning as the Covid-19 virus is causing trips to be cancelled and cruise ships not to dock. We empathise with all those in the travel industry whose livelihoods are being affected. However, our very personalised tour was really special. Paul is very good, informative and humorous. The highlight in all ways was the 360° view from the summit of Mount Eden but everything was interesting. We would thoroughly recommend this tour. Thank you Paul, and we did also enjoy our ferry trip to Devonport as you suggested.

Thank you for your very kind review, and thank you for sharing your concerns, and support of the travel industry. Yes we will keep going. We had a fun time, and I'm so happy you also got to Devonport. Yes I still think the best view of Auckland is from Mt Eden. It was a pleasure hosting you both. Thanks again for visiting New Zealand. All the best to you and your families. Paul.
