We enjoyed this tour very much as it gave us an opportunity to see some of the New Zealand
countryside/"wilderness" around Auckland. Our guide was quite knowledgeable and wiling to tailor
the tour to the small group we had (two seniors and a family of five with 3 small children).
We had a great time on this tour, the guild was splendid, she was enthusiastic about sharing her insights on New Zealand with us, she was well informed and pleasant.Reviewed by: James S, December 2013
Great experience and wonderful views. Note that there is some walking required down and up hills which may not be suitable for everyone. Tour guide Dawn was great.Reviewed by: wr2r, USA, November 2013
Wayne Thomas was great! We took a number of tours with Holland America through-out Australia and New Zealand and they were very good but this was excellent. I highly recommend this tour.Reviewed by: Sam S, November 2013
Fantastic experience walking through the rainforest with an expert guide. Special thanks to Dion for a great tour and for helping me propose to my girlfriend in front of the most beautiful waterfall in all of New Zealand. Professional service, extremely informative, and an all-around good time. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great nature walk during an afternoon in Auckland!Reviewed by: Ronald A, September 2013

Lion Rock at Piha Bay...the rainforest and the giant Kauri trees...breathtaking!!! This may have been my favorite tour. Dion was an excellent guide and I really got a lot out of the day. I'm so happy I did it!Reviewed by: tmegyeri, January 2012
Very interesting tour with a small group. Efficient pick-up from the hotels too, The guide (Tony) was very good and showed all the special things in the forest and provided interesting explanation about the plants and birds. By the way, it is obvious why it's called a RAINforest! I recommend this tour, it is the best I booked via Viator!Reviewed by: Jaap R, Netherlands, December 2010
