    Michael was a great, he had a very relaxed easy going nature and took his time to speak to everyone on the tour. We would recommend it to anyone who wanted to see the sights and get to some of the neighbouring suburbs. He picked up from our hotel and dropped us off at the harbour as we requested. Would highly recommend this tour.

    Very good to get to know Auckland in a more private way

    The tour was really good. Michael is very nice. We went to the main points of Auckland with panoramic views. Quiet time for photos. More private tour, excellent information about the stops. Too bad the weather didn't help (it was cloudy). But I recommend it for those who come to Auckland with little time or want something less touristic. Beautiful views.

    Michael was fabulous! He really knew his stuff and was very friendly, as well as quite humorous. This was such a beautiful way to see the highlights of Auckland (away from the tourist traps) and learn about the history of a beautiful city. I thoroughly enjoyed my tour and would recommend it to anyone wanting an overview of a beautiful city! Thank you Michael!
