What a fantastic experience. Pick up was punctual at 8.10am. David our tour guide and driver was very welcoming. Our 8 hour tour gave us a very comprehensive overview of Auckland city and it’s surrounds. We covered approximately 200klm so we certainly got to see and learn so much about the area. David’s local knowledge was excellent and delivered with humour

Pauline our guide was excellent. I had never been on a Segway before but with Pauline's expert guidance we were soon whizzing about like pros. If you are ever in Auckland book yourself a tour you won't be disappointed.

Absolutely the best experience we had in Davenport. Amazing guide and very informative. We enjoyed it so much we contemplated booking again for the next day!!

Absolutely recommended!!!

I really enjoyed the history lesson of the picturesque Davenport while having a blast on the segway.

Just myself and my guide. She was lovely. Very informative and great way to see the town.
