Really enjoyed our tour. Our guide Paul was very friendly and personable. He was very knowledgeable and answered all our many questions. This tour is a really great way to get a good overview of Auckland. We would not have done nearly as much on our own, and it was a good way to find out what we would like to do while here. Paul was super-helpful and a great guy. Highly recommended.

I did the Auckland Three Hours Express Tour hosted by Paul. Paul gave an excellent overview of Auckland with beautiful pit stops along the way. I really enjoyed myself, especially since I only had one full day in Auckland. Whilst the tour was only 3 hours long, in no way did it ever felt rushed. We had ample time to explore at each stop, and any other potential attractions of interest were recommended to us along the way. Paul was also really patient and passionate in sharing both his city and culture, which made the whole tour really informative and enjoyable. Overall, I would strongly recommend the express tour, and definitely look forward to joining any of Paul’s other offerings when I do come back to visit. Thanks mate! Ryan

Thank you for your kind review. I am happy you had a great time. As you noted when we were on tour, that you would have missed so many of the hidden gems of Auckland. It would be great to have you back. Nga Mihi Paul.

We are a family of four who recently relocated to Auckland for work and wanted to orientate ourselves quickly, so we booked a tour with Paul and had a fabulous morning, visiting the beautiful gardens near the War Museum, climbing Mount Eden, driving up through the park around One Tree Hill etc. It was a great way to start to get to know the city. Paul is a warm, friendly guide who is a mine of information about everything Auckland! We came away full of ideas and tips on where to visit next, days out etc. Book this tour - you will not regret it!

Thank you for your kind review. It was a real pleasure hosting you. Sometimes Auckland can be a bit of a maze, so having a local get you around the place is so much easier. Great to have you here. Paul.
