Husband and I took the 5 hour tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. We saw beaches, small towns, and all the sights you could want to see. The price was very reasonably priced. We would definitely recommend this tour.

I arranged for a three-hour layover tour on my way back home from Australia to the U.S. Fleur met me at the airport and managed to tell and show me a lot about New Zealand's natural beauty and history despite wet, dark and rainy conditions. Fleur is very knowledgeable, easy to talk with and answered any and all questions I... More

Ian was a wealth of information while providing a private group tour of Auckland and environs; he was flexible to accommodate the needs of the group while offering recommendations based on his knowledge and experience. The long day trip to Rotorua was outstanding, affording both beautiful countryside and learning about Maori history and culture. The glowworm caves are a must-do.... More

Fleur picked us up near airport and gave us a great tour of Auckland and surrounding area. We saw some scenic beaches and country that our packaged tour didn't include. We discovered a great restaurant out in wine country, good food and view. Can't remember it's name but I'm sure Fleur does. Definitely the way to go if you have... More

Ian picked us up at the Auckland airport from our very early morning flight. From the very beginning he was welcoming and willing to do the little extras to make us feel comfortable after the long flight.

I was traveling with a group of 7 friends. We were arriving on an early morning flight (6:00 am!) from the U.S. Since we wouldn't be able to check in to our hotel until 2:00 pm, we had several hours to kill. I did some research and found Ian and Twin Harbor Tours on TripAdvisor. I contacted Ian to enquire... More
