“The perfect way to see NZ in a nut shell...”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Bush and Beach offers a great service. I was on a business trip in Auckland and had a couple free afternoons to spare; took a tour one day, and couldn't help it, had to take one the next day as well. Small tour groups, personalized service. Great for the traveler that wants to see a new place but doesn't want to sit on a tour bus of 50 people...Thanks a lot!

“Well worth your time and money”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

The tour guides were very knowledgable, friendly and cheerful and always strive to make the trip well worth your time and money. The guide always keeps the commentary going by providing additional valuable information. This tour company is probably the only one in Auckland that caters for people flying solo.

“Tours of Aucklund, New Zealand”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

I used Bush and Beach for two tours. One around Aucklund and one for the surrounding countryside. Wayne and Alexander were excellent. Great knowledge of the tours and they pointed out everything. I was there for only two days but the tours helped me see many things I would have missed otherwise.
I would highly recommend them for your tours. I also thought the prices were reasonable.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

My husband and I didn't know what to expect but we enjoyed our day tour totally. The morning we got an overview of the east part of Aukland. Seeing the sites where the "Kiwis" hang out. That was with Wayne our guide. The afternoon we switched guides and had Dawn who took us to the west side of Aukland. We saw a waterfall in which if it was warmer we could go swimming, we also went to the beach and the rain forest! It was a great tour!

“Really Nice Day”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

I was in Auckland and found this tour to see some of the countryside via the Hilton Hotel bell man. Worked out great. Wayne was my guide and just wonderful insight.
