We were very impressed with this tour. Michael is a one-man show who really knows his city and environs and even knows some secret places that 0ther tour operators either don’t know or can’t access.

This tour was delivered by one of the most well-informed personable guides we have had on holidays before now. Michael was a funny, friendly and a highly considerate man.

Perfect Auckland Overview

If you are spending limited time in Auckland and want a quick overview, this tour is for you! Our guide, Mike, was personable and informative. We got off to a slow start due to his need to pick up cruise passengers from the very "under construction" dock area (a lot of the downtown is under construction). However, he did this with good humor and color commentary and we never felt rushed during the actual tour. This tour perfectly met our hopes.

Tour guide Michael was excellent very knowledgeable and friendly. We arranged to be picked up by our cruise ship. This made Michael late due to extensive roadworks around the port area, causing him to be late for each subsequent pick, up obviously not his fault. This was a small group in a comfortable, clean vehicle. The tour itself covered all the major sights in and around Auckland with Michael giving a constant commentary. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Auckland.

Michael was a very good and knowledgeable driver He provided a very comprehensive tour of Auckland Most of the tour was driving through the various areas of the city but other than climbing mount Eden the stops made were only to briefly take photos At mount Eden he did make an alternative ride to the top to those unable to walk up which was excellent as my wife was able to still see the views from the top

ACCLIMATE FAST & SEE THE WHOLE CITY

Super awesome tour!! First off, the guide was so patient and flexible. One of the people in our group just landed and and jumped out of the cab as the tour bus arrived ... get this he waited an extra five minutes so he wouldnt miss the tour!! He was also super considerate of the groups needs making unplanned pit stops for coffee and ice cream which was so thoughtful because the entire bus had just arrived that morning and were still acclimating. The guide was so knowledgeable and included some of his secret spots and had special access worked out for some of the group who weren't as active. We ALL got phenomenal photos ops of the city skyline. Hands down a must do!
