It was my pleasure. Thank you so much for your review especially given your busy travel schedule. It was a delightful (but chilly) morning showing you around. Please come back to Aotearoa!

As an Aucklander, I loved learning more about the history and geography of our city. Liz was a library of knowledge and an entertaining host. I couldn't recommend her highly enough.
