This was one of the best city tours (I have done at least 100 or more). Michael was amazingly funny, knowledgeable and very accommodating. He shared a lot of history and took us around the highlights of the city and surrounding areas. It is also packed with useful information about this beautiful city. A great value. Highly recommended it!

Super interesting! Our guide was funny, gave us a lot of information -but not too much!- and was patient in answering the group's questions. Unfortunately, during the tour, some people were talking loudly among themselves, speaking little English, and it was difficult to listen. Too bad… disrespectful to others who paid.

Very enjoyable trip showing us many excellent views of Auckland. The small bus was comfortable and our guide Michael made us all very welcome and kept us entertained with lots of stories and information. And a great lunch recommendation.

Overall the easiest way to tour around the City and its outskirts and make stops to take wonderful photos and memories. We loved it! Thank you

Busses were clean and on time. Loved seeing Auckland CBD from another prospective. Great value for money! Highly recommend this tour :)
