Michael was our tour guide and was wonderful to have as he was full of information about the city and knew where to go to get the best pictures of the city. It was also a great way to orient yourself when you first come...More

Very good half-day orientation tour of Auckland. Paul was great tour guide and offered me very good introduction of the city. Took me to lots of tourist attractions which were hard for me to go without hiring a car. Strongly recommended for solo travelers

Michael is great fountain of information and kept stories coming as we drove around and saw city from several vantage points. Would easily recommend to someone new to city and wanting to see some sights and also get some good local knowledge.
