There seems to have been a bit of a mix up with Viator as they had somehow cancelled our tour so we were waiting a while to actually get started and were quite worried we would not be going especially as we had already paid for the tour. Terry however was accommodating and made the tour worth while. We called him and explained the situation and he was very understanding. He showed us amazing views and taught us a lot. Terry was very friendly and simply fantastic! Terry was an amazing guide. I would definitely recommend this tour.

The Waitakere Ranges is a must to see in Auckland, with a stop at the Aritaki Information Center with amazing views over Auckland and the Tasman sea, we were able to get to know the rainforest thanks to our guide who provided us with a lot of information about trees, flora and fauna walking to the Kitekite falls. Piha beach is spectacular.

This tour was great and the guide was amazing. Weather was unusually hot but, the swim in the pool under the waterfall was a perfect way to end the tour. Guide was fun and informative.

This was an amazing tour. I got to experience the beauty of the forest and the beach as well as learn about the trees and native animals. Walking through the forest to the waterfall was an amazing experience. I am so glad I chose this tour. And a special thank you to our tour guide, Terry, who went out of his way to share photos with me when I forgot my camera. Thank you!

Terry was an amazing guide and host for the day! It turned out to be just our group of three and Terry. It really was like meeting up with a good friend who was showing you about his favorite places- not your typical canned tour at all! My son told me to meet a local to really learn about a place. This tour was exactly that! It was a personalized tour of Auckland's most beautiful areas and so much more- any question we had, Terry could answer, from New Zealand customs to rugby rules to social policy! This is was definitely a great way to see some of the best of Auckland's beaches and rainforest in a just a day! You need to be up for a fair bit of walking, and even climbing about some rocks on Piha Beach! However, the pace was manageable even for this 60 year old! This tour was the last one of our 2 week trip to Australia and New Zealand and by far the best we had! Cannot say enough about what a wonderful day we had with Terry!

Even though we started out in the misty fog and drizzle, this day was awesome. Thanks to Terry, our knowledgeable tour guide, we were treated on a hike to Kitekite Waterfall through a rainforest full of beautiful flora. Because we were the only people on the tour that particular day, we were shown a highly personalized time. Terry walked us to areas of beautiful Piha Beach which go largely unseen my most visitors. All it all, it was a fantastic way to begin our tour of New Zealand.
