Via e-mail Kevin created a customized bike, hike & sunset tour for us in the Waitakere range that was wonderful. He worked around our flights in and out of Auckland airport on what would normally be a day off for him. His bikes are in great condition and the trail we rode was tropical and easy to manage. Next we enjoyed the visitor center, some scenic vistas and a hike to the Kitekite falls. Finished up with a visit to the village and beach in Phia, then dinner. We couldn't have asked for a better outdoor activity and guide while in the Auckland area. Kevin was responsive in advance and a pleasure to be with all day.

Hi Tim and Donna, I too enjoyed our venture out west it was something new for me too doing a sunset tour, I was very pleased the Piha RSA Club was open for our custom where we enjoyed some Fish and Chips. The fish was Terakhi a local fish to New Zealand waters. Thank you so much for taking the time to write a wonderful review it's very much appreciated. We hope you enjoyed your time in Queenstown a very special place. Safe Travels. Kevin.

Kevin & Jack ran our tour that they were happy to customize for our best experience. The guys were friendly and pleasantly casual while still professional and very organised. The bikes were excellent quality and very comfortable to ride through a perfectly selected track for our abilities. Although it rained during the ride, it made for a unique experience that enhanced the adventure even more! The hike at Piha Beach was beautiful and finished off the day wonderfully. We were also very happy that the guys picked us up & dropped us back to our accommodation in auckland city. For a fun filled day I definitely recommend this tour with these guys!

Kevin was really great. Organization excellent. The bikes were impeccable, and the ride very enjoyable with excellent views of the west coast. Hiked in the rain to the waterfalls in the rain (Kevin provided us with rain ponchos) and then a grand finale at Piha beach--we were lucky with a super tide, and Kevin didn't mind at all staying longer and enjoy our exploration of the caves. Highly recommended.

The Waitakere Rain Forest & Black Sand Beach mountain biking and hiking tour with Kevin of bikeandhike.nz was fantastic! It was so good, I'm submitting my first ever trip advisor review. We felt like we saw & did a lot in one short day and it was a good value. We were picked up by Kevin at our Auckland hotel and traveled about 30 minutes in a nice van to the start of the first trail where we got our mountain bikes fitted and started up the trail to the Arataki visitor center. Kevin & his wife were great company and very informative about New Zealand flora, fauna/wildlife that we saw along the way. The bikes were in great condition, and Kevin thought ahead to bring nice rain ponchos, which we did have to use briefly due to the on & off rain that day. The trail was very scenic and fairly easy (until the end where there was a steep uphill but that was easy enough to walk). We then did some hiking along the Hillary Trail with gorgeous ocean vistas & beautiful trees, ferns, etc. Our 3rd hike was on the Kitekite trail to a beautiful waterfall with a swimming hole. Our last stop was to a nice black sand beach. Kevin was also very responsive in answering questions in advance of our trip. He even accommodated us on a day when he doesn't normally run this tour, since we were unable to do it when scheduled. Since the day we would go was on the weekend, we had the additional benefit of Kevin's wife joining us. We were so happy he did as this tour was definitely a highlight of our 3.5 week trip! Thanks again Kevin & Sonia!!

Thank you so much for writing a review especially as you would have had to investigate how to do it being your first review...a brilliant effort. It was a good day and Sonia always enjoys meeting people from all around the world too, the only downside is we feel the need to visit all these other amazing spots around the world and don't have the time! Tour 1 which you guys did is a popular trip as lots of variety and a paddle in the Tasman sea at the end of the day to cool off is always nice. Thanks for making such a big effort with the review we really appreciate your effort. Safe Travels..... Kevin

Had a great time exploring, biking, and hiking! We had really wanted to see Waitakere, and the iSite folks recommended a tour. A little wary at first of a guided tour, but so glad we did it! Great way to see the area, and our guide Kevin was knowledgeable, patient, and fun! Some of us were a bit slow on our bikes, but our guide was kind through it all. The views and the gorgeous falls made all the effort worth it! Very highly recommended, especially since it's such an affordable trip that packs in a full day's worth of activities!
