We booked the afternoon tour for the 27th Feb and turned out to be very lucky as we quickly saw lots of common dolphins. The crew were all excellent at sharing valuable and interesting information. All of which was presented in a good humorous style. They encouraged questions about their research and ocean and mammals. We then were incredibly lucky to see a Brydes whale for a good period of time. Highly recommend this tour, the time passed very quickly and we were very well looked after
It would have been a perfect day if the weather had cooperated. Still I had a great time. The drivers from and to Auckland were pleasant and safe drivers. The tour of the Hobbiton set would have been better if it were possible to be in smaller groups of maybe 4 or 5 rather than the bus full of about 20 that each group was composed of, but that´s not on you.
Chris (driver/quide with Auckland and Beyond) was great! Got us there and back again in a timely manner with humor and care. Got to Hobbiton and it seemed everyone working there knew and liked him, from the other drivers to the guides showing us around the movie set. Highly recommend you continuing working with A&B in the future.
Very good. Be aware, if you intend to book a meal in the Orbit 360 did a meal, you will get complimentary entry free to the Sky Tower so book that first unlike me. I paid for entry to Sky Tower then booked a meal!!! Lifts are half metal and half glass floor and you can see outside as you ride up.
Experienced informative crew. Saw plenty of dolphins in their natural element at close quarters. No whales as e were told really wrong time of year so no 5 star. Wear sun hats, sun cream and watch out for the wash from bows when they dig in. Listen and learn from the crew.
