I had a group lesson. It was really good for the first surfing lesson. I choose this school because I need a pick-up. Without any utilities could you get a pick-up at good public positions. The price is normally, if you match schools. The teacher brought us to a such good beach. The waves were excellent for starters. In Auckland rained it the whole time and we had sun. Awesome. You got a small lunch bag, what I could not expect. I price was for a two hours, but I think we stayed much longer at the beach. I enjoyed this day.

Last week I went on the White Weekend Ski Trip to the Whakapapa ski area and it was amazing!
Great people, great accommodation, beautiful ski area and the weather was amazing!

Thanks to Felipe I had the best weekend in New Zealand so far! I definitely recommend the white weekend to anyone who loves skiing and/or snowboarding but it's also very nice to hike there!

My wife and I had a one day layover in New Zealand, so we wanted to see something that was truly New Zealand and could fit our very tight schedule. We did the Waitakere tour and was able to work with the tour to get a time that worked for us - they were so friendly and flexible via email and in person.

There was only one other person on our tour, so we were able to go at a leisurely pace and really get to experience nature in New Zealand.

I would recommend this tour in a heartbeat to anyone visiting New Zealand that wanted to get our of the city for a few hours.

Felipe was a great teacher and really nice person too. He took us to different places near Auckland depending on the weather conditions, giving us the chance to see different amazing beaches of the country! Had a great time with him and would totally recommend it!
The Surf gear was in perfect conditions too and his offer of pick up and drop off was especially confortable as it was not included in the offers of other schools.

Hatte grossen Spass mit Felipe und würde es allen Empfehlen!
Die Anzüge und Boards waren in perfektem Zustand und mit seinen Fähigkeiten als Lehrer konnte er mich mehrmals überzeugen. Er kümmerte sich unter anderem auch besonders um die Sicherheit der Teilnehmenden was einem Vertrauen gab!

P.V.
