Owner description: Until we stopped providing tours in Dec 2016. We were a New Zealand based tour company providing special eco friendly, outdoor scenic day tours in the beautiful native forest & beaches of the Waitakere Ranges in Auckland. Our website now instead provides inspiration for visitors to go see and visit in the Waitakere Rannges on their own. check our website or Instagram and get inspired and plan your next adventure to The Waitakere Ranges

“The best tour with the best tourguide . . .”
Reviewed March 28, 2014


We remember the great 1/2 day tour with Te Huia Tours and our great guide Michael. We enjoyed all the beautiful and spectacular points at Te Huia Tours:
The wonderful Arataki Visitor Center, Michaels interesting information, the breathtaking views to rainforest and the spectacular coastline.
The walk to the Karekare Falls and to the impressive Karekare Beach (we remembered the filming location for “The Piano”).
The walk at the beautiful Mercer Bay Loop Track along the highest seacliffs of the region with fantastic views to Piha Beach and Karekare Beach.
And at last our nice stay, enjoying an ice-cream in an easy-going atmosphere at the Piha Beach with the Lion Rock.

It was the best tour with the best tour guide ever - unforgettable!

Thank you so very much Heidi and Hans. It was an absolute pleasure to take you both on your tour ‘Karekare & Piha Beach Tour’. You only had a short stay in Auckland so we were thrilled that you choose Te Huia Tours for your tour and that you had such a memorable time. I was very impressed with both you and Hans at ages 69 and 77 walking the tracks and beaches like a couple of young bucks with no issues as all a fun relaxed trip. You are both in great shape and proved that age is no barrier to take our tours. Have a great day and all the best with the future. P.S thanks for the wonderful photos too :)

Thank you so very much Miho for your wonderful review, We really enjoyed taking you on tour and had a great day with you. So glad you enjoyed seeing 'Karekare Beach' after you had dreamed of visiting there for so many years after seeing the movie 'The Piano'. Al the best!
