This was the best way we could have started our holiday. Fresh air, a little light exercise (those e-bikes really help on the hills!) beautiful scenery and interesting history and anecdotes from our Maori guide. She was exceptional; highly educated, very lucid, great sense of humour and a strong connection to her Maori roots. We had a wonderful day.

We recently had a very interesting 4-hour hike of Waiheke Island led by Vince, a University of Auckland Professor. We saw the beautiful landscapes of the island, while learning about the geography and plant life of the island, along with the Maori history of New Zealand. It was a fascinating afternoon and we learned a lot. We would highly recommend this tour.

We thoroughly loved our hike on Waiheke Island. Our Maori guide had incredible insights to the area and Kiwi history as a whole. The scenes were stunning, the winery visited was great and we loved hiking across the island to build up an appetite.

What an amazing and beautiful walking tour Robyn gave us. It was just perfect, a lovely nature walk on that wonderful peaceful island with her giving us many fascinating insights about both the land and Maori culture. And what beautiful sights! Highly recommended. Many thanks, Robyn, it could not have been better!

We spent a fun, informative and active few hours with Robyn of Hike Bike Ako on Waiheke Island. Robyn met us at the ferry building where we joined another couple for a fun day of hiking, cycling, wine tasting, all the while learning about the Maori culture and people. Thanks Robyn for a fun day!
