        Great tour
        Mike was a great tour guide. He’s very personable, professional, and has a good sense of humor. There was a group of 19 of us and we had two buses and Denny was the second driver. I hope you enjoyed the ice cream Mike.

        Great Auckland overview
        A fantastic tour incorporating so much in a half day. Thanks Mike for an informative afternoon and plenty of great views and photo stops. I really enjoyed myself and it was amazing to visit Auckland again after 40 years since my last visit. I also thought this tour was great value for money. I can highly recommend Auckland Scenic Tours!

        A tour you will not regret!
        I recently went on an Auckland Scenic Tours trip to Hobbiton and the Waitomo Glowworm Caves with tour guide Michael. He is absolutely a fountain of knowledge and was able to fill our journey with Māori history and folk tales. Michael was cheery and bright from the very first moment before sunrise to the last moment as he returned all of us to our hotels after a famous Auckland traffic jam. I much preferred Michael to our assigned guide at Hobbiton and wish we would have been able to listen to him instead; I’m sure we would have taken much more away from the experience. Michael took the time to learn a little bit about everybody and make sure everybody on the bus felt welcomed and included. As for the destinations, Hobbiton was even more detailed than you can imagine and well worth the trip, though I do wish that the group size were a bit smaller (trying to squeeze through 40 people with one guide in narrow paths every 10 minutes isn’t possible when people are taking pictures or observing small details). This isn’t anything to do with Auckland Scenic Tours. The glow worms caves were simply magical, and the included lunch was top notch. I would most certainly another tour offered by Auckland Scenic Tours in the future, and I will be asking to have Michael as my guide again!

        Two Great Places to Visit
        Nice tour although we were a little disappointed with the Glowworm Cave stop. Hobbiton was a great stop and we enjoyed immensely. Geof, our driver, was knowledgable, friendly, and a great communicator.

        Holiday from USA
        This was well worth the day although it was a 13 hour day. Six A.M. to 7 P.M. Don, our guide was excellent. We stoped for comfort breaks and lunch. He sang and gave us history lessons about the Island's culture. Hobbiton and the caves were excellent.

        A Way to Make Your family & Friends Jealous, LOL
        If you're a Lord of the Rings / Hobbit fan, you simply must visit the Hobbiton (why isn't it called the Shire??) Movie Set. All your fellow nerds will be super jealous when they find out you were there and see your pictures. We all like to make our acquaintances jealous of our vacation fun, right? As for the Glowworm Cave, there are lots of them in the area, and I suspect at least one of them had to have been better than the one we visited. We explored very little of the cave, but maybe that was dictated by a limited time set by Auckland Scenic Tours. The roundtrip from Auckland was long, so I'm guessing they needed to add a second stop, but not make it too long so that the driver would get us back by 6:30 PM. It was roughly a 12 hour day. All-in-all, Auckland Scenic Tours put together a fun trip, and our driver was great!

        Absolutely amazing time!
        We just had the BEST day with our tour guide, Brenda. We loved Hobbiton and they added a full Hobbit hole you can walk through which was just an amazing addition to an already fabulous experience. The glowworm cave was such an interesting and awe-inspiring experience. But the highlight of our day was Brenda. She was so knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. She really went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time. Thank you for such an awesome experience!

        This was a fantastic tour! Our guide, Amethyst was so knowledgeable about so many things and the fact that she worked on the set when the movie was made was even better because she had special insights.

        Brilliant tour! Had high hopes that Hobbiton would be magical, and it exceeded all expectations!!! Glowworm caves were fascinating. Our guide Amethyst was absolutely the BEST; so informative, entertaining and just a lovely person. Don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime experience, even if you’re not a Lord of the Rings fan (and my man is not and even he was completely entertained)

        Friendly tour guide for our road trip to Hobbiton
        Michael was our tour guide for our trip to Hobbiton. He was really personable and made extra effort to make sure each person in our small tour group had a great time. We were picked up from our hotel for the journey through the Waikato region and out to The Shire. On our road trip Michael provided a commentary that became a conversation between new friends. At Hobbiton there is some time to use the restrooms, the cafe, visit the gift shop and take photos before Michael handed us over to the Hobbiton guide for a short drive to The Shire. My experience of LoTR is limited but the tour is so well done I was really impressed. The tour guide takes groups of about 30 people on a walking tour through the lush green undulating terrain of The Shire. The tour lasts about 1.5 hours. A new part of the tour includes going inside one of the hobbit holes where you can take photos in the various rooms. The attention to detail is amazing. At the end of the tour you will go inside the Green Dragon pub for a free drink. Michael, our tour guide, met us outside the Green Dragon and helped us with photos before our small group boarded the bus back to Auckland. Whilst the Hobbiton tour itself is amazing, the peace of mind and extra value of being with a knowledgeable tour guide like Muchael means you will get more from the experience than if you did it by yourself.

        Excellent half day tour. Pickup was seamless from cruise ship. Mike was very well informed and passionate regarding Auckland, past and present. I would recommend this tour to anyone, arriving in Auckland by ship, both on quality and cost.

        Mike was an excellent tour guide. Nothing was a problem, and everything was carefully explained. Very good overview of Auckland, its history and its present day status. I would recommend this tour to anyone, particularly as an alternative to somewhat overpriced ships tours.

      I think this tour is perfect for folk who have 1 day in Auckland, and want to see lots of things.
      The driver / guide was Mike, and he was fine.
      I thought that the tour was overpriced.
      The place they took us for lunch ( at the
      traveler’s expense ), we were extremely unimpressed with. The food was overpriced and the portions very small.
      One lady in the group had fish & chips,
      and her portion was big.
      I had the pork belly and all 4 bites were
      very tasty. The problem being there were only 4 bites ( okay, maybe 6 bites )
      The tour itself was fine, no major complaints, other than the restaurant, and that i felt that the tour overall was too expensive for value
      received.
      I think most people would like this tour-
      after 30+ years in the travel industry,
      I am very particular.

      Thank you for choosing our tour and your comments. Our lunch destination is historic as dates back to 1857. The location is picture perfect. So many guests say that this is one of the highlights of their day; so we regret that this wasn't your experience. Their menu is extremely extensive as you would have seen, some 4 pages and includes everything from steak, to fish to seafood, to pasta to salads to vegetarian etc. We pride our tours on being excellent value for money and we are sorry you felt otherwise as $120 for an 8-Hour tour including wine tasting is the most competitive and comprehensive Full Day 8-Hour tour available. It was a privilege hosting you and showcasing Auckland to you. Best wishes for the rest of your holiday.

      We had David as our guide and driver.The weather was raining and uncooperative for a spring tour in Auckland. However, David was irrepressible and did not let the weather get him down.
      He knew his stuff about Auckland and answered all our questions about the city. He drove us all around the various peninsulas that make up the city and its suburbs. He discussed the architecture as we passed notable buildings. The wine tasting at Soljan's was enlightening (Who knew that Rose was so smooth?) He discussed the NZ history as he took us for lunch at Riverhead that was founded only 17 years after New Zealand was founded.

      All in all, the tour was excellent. We look for tours like this in every city we visit (and we have taken a lot of tours) and this tour is in our top ten.

      If you want to get familiar with Auckland, you cannot go wrong with this tour. David was everything you want in a tour guide: very knowledgeable, personable, funny, but not too much. He gets to know his charges and makes everyone feel at ease.

      He even made the weather change to sunny and windy :)

      Highly recommended.

      Picked up at the pier for a full day of exploring the beautiful city of Auckland. Mike was our driver and our tour guide with a fountain of knowledge. We visited all the highlights of the Auckland and also enjoyed a delicious lunch and also visited a winery. Walking up a volcano to view the city was priceless. This is a MUST tour when you visit Auckland for the very first time and it’s worth every penny.
      Great tour Mike!

      Wow! Loved your headline " Simply amazing." You experienced first hand why we pride our tour as being the most comprehensive 1 Day Tour available of Auckland. Whether, like you ,on a cruise ship or at a hotel, our tour truly encapsulates the real Auckland with its vibrancy, spectacular scenery and the 360 views atop our volcanoes (extinct of course) that give the most amazing views of Auckland. You can now appreciate why to see the best of Auckland you need to be in a smaller 12-15 centre vehicle rather than the 50/60/70 seater coaches as, due to the topography of Auckland, we journey to places the large buses physically cannot go to. No doubt when you reflect on a map of Auckland you will truly appreciate how much of Auckland we covered and you saw; and yes the historic lunch stop that so many guests say is one of the highlights of the day not to mention the wine tasting (included in our tour) We appreciated your comment also " it’s worth every penny. " as we believe everyone of our 8 tours are excellent value-for-money Thank you for choosing our tour and best wishes

      Our tour guide was Mike -- he was excellent in every way. From booking the tour to reminders to on time pick up this tour was just amazing. There were 9 people on our tour from all over the world and we had a great time. There is so much to see in Auckland outside the CBD and we saw it all, beautiful beaches, sailboats, yachts, sheep, harbor bridge, America's Cup Club, historical villas, 1920's gunnery cannon, fabulous lunch at Riverside restaurant, pastoral areas with rolling hills and a wine tasting and lastly gelato stop.

      Don't miss this great tour and an easy way to see Auckland.

      This was a great tour of Auckland, showcasing the most amazing and scenic areas of Auckland such as the summit of Mt. Eden and a great view of the Gannet Colony in Muriwai Beach. Our tour guide, David, was extremely knowledgeable, personable and professional and did his best to include all members of the tour and accomodate all of their needs. Overall, this tour was enjoyable and I could not recommend this enough for those wanting a crash course of the scenic and historical nature of Auckland.

      Isn't Auckland such a spectacularly scenic city; no better 360 degree views than from some of our extinct volcanoes that you commented on. We love your photos showcasing the rugged beauty of our west coast.

      We had an amazing day seeing Auckland with Mike. There were so many places to see, from the beaches to the homes of the rich and sometimes famous on Paratai Drive to the ferns and flowers in the Domain and more. Mike told us the history of the places we saw, kept us amused, and was always eager to take photos of us.

      I enjoyed all of our stops; the BYO lunch at the Riverhead Tavern was great (Mike recommended the Market Fish risotto, and it was delicious), and the wine tasting at Soljans was very nice (and they ship wine at a reasonable price!). Our visit to the Disappearing Gun at North Head was another highlight.

      Mike even included a couple of surprises - a stop in Devonport for gelato for those who wanted it, and a visit to the America's Cup at the RNZYS.

      It was a great day!

      Just completed the 8 hour tour with Mike as our guide. Amazing. This tour ventured through the city and out to the countryside to see many sites at a very relaxed pace. Mike was informative, helpful and truly enjoys his job. We were a group of 9 couples and families who shared a great day. Highly recommend this to first time visitors to Auckland.

      Did so much, saw so much in a single amazing day! David was a terrific guide. The winter gardens (Victorian and the Fernery) were gorgeous. The view from Mt Eden, Auckland's highest volcano, was exhilarating. Tour also included at least a dozen other stops, including a tasting at a 5 generation owned winery, spectacular vantage points above the city, underground military tunnels, and a drive through the charming town of Devonport. Highly recommended!

      I had only one day in Auckland NZ (while my husband was on a business trip) to get the most out of this tour experience of this beautiful country. Luckily the concierge at the Sofitel Auckland connected me with this company. I originally was looking for a 3 hr walking tour. Nothing was available that fit into my time frame. This tour was presented to me and I decided to go for it. Dave was the amazing tour guide, I can’t say enough about Dave…he was THE BEST!! Along with me, a New Yorker who relocated to Florida, there were a couple from Sri Lanka, 3 people from Sydney Australia, a couple from Perth Australia and a mother/daughter from Tahiti. It was a great mix of wonderful people. The knowledge and amount of information given to us by Dave was truly a gift! The tour transformed my relationship with Auckland NZ from one of complete ignorance to one of true love and appreciation. Thanks Dave and the other fellow tourists for a very memorable 8 hours. XOX

      Our guide, Mike, made the trip very enjoyable. He shared his extensive knowledge of the history of Auckland with the group. He drove us thru the different neighborhoods describing the characteristics of each area. We stopped at the many scenic vistas to take photos. All questions were answered and we never felt rushed to get to the next destination. The time was well spent and I would recommend the Full Day Tour..
