“First class service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2010

We chose the Rotorua and Waitomo Voyager overnight tour and had a great time. Our host Gavin made every effort possible to cater to our individual preferences to make the trip fulfill and exceed our expectations.Although we visited the main tourist attractions, he also took us to off the beaten path. In addtion, he made sure we arrived at the different locatons at the perfect time so we did not clash with any of those big tour buses. Accomodations for the night were as expected.

Highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to visit the natural wonders around Auckland in a short time.

“Simply wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2010

On our last day in New Zeland, we wanted to see the Whaipoa Forest and the Bay of Islands. Thanks to Milestone Tour we saw them, and had an excellent time. Our guide was entousiastic to share with us his outstanding knowedge of the history, anecdotes, environment, geology and culture of NZ. We had fun, learned things and loved this special tour for the two of us. Why look elsewhere? Thanks Gavin.

“Outstanding day out - unmissable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2010

Four of us took Milestones Adventure tour while in Auckland and it was one of the best things we did. It had a bit of everything including a drive up an extinct volcano with awesome views of Auckland and a wonderfully informative and fun walk through the native forest to a spectacular waterfall - the black sand beach was incredible too, as was the surfing we watched. The picnic in the bush was a great touch too, especially as the sun shone for us.

This was the only 'formal' tour we took on our holiday and it left us wondering if we should have done more as it gave us a real sense of where we were and what we were seeing.

“Best tour of my vacation - O for Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2010

As a single female traveller I was a little concerned about spending two days with a
bunch of people I didn't know. I needn't have worried. Milestone Tours were great.
We were kept busy enough by a very friendly and knowledgeable guide (Gavin) but not
so busy we couldn't stop to take lots of photos! The group was small it was hard
not to feel at home. Gavin treated us all like long lost mates and was eager to help
with recommendations for dinner stops.The cultural performance at Whakarewarewa
(apologies if I have misspelt) was fantastic, the geothermal pools and caves truly
magnificent. I would not hesitate to contact Milestone Tours on my next visit to New
Zealand nor recommend them to friends. I thoroughly enjoyed my tour and walked away
thinking that it was money very well spent.

“Best tour money can buy.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2010

This tour might be a little pricier than most, but it is absolutely worth it. Gavin knows the North Island in and out, and his tour was the best I went on in over two weeks in New Zealand. He speaks Maori, and his knowledge of all things Kiwi is truly spectacular. History, geography and culture; he knows it all. But the tour never even gets close to cheesy: he avoids the touristy towns and anything less than 100% genuine. I can't recommend his tours enough.
