With unfortunately only one day to explore the Auckland area, Timmy provided a wonderful experience. He showed us non-touristy locations and did so with an excellent knowledge of the Auckland sights. We enjoyed a local farmer's market, amazing wildlife views, a gentle hike and most of all, patience with all of our questions. He provided us a lovely basket with NZ candy, bottled water and fresh tangelos from the tree in his backyard. Timmy was kind & efficient in making phone calls to help us locate a missing cell phone. We appreciated his communications, both before and after our trip. Wishing you all the best, Timmy.

Tim has an immense knowledge of the must-see locations in Auckland and despite being an Aucklander myself, I was surprised to find out just how little I knew about it. The tour was informal yet organised and kept my friends and I wanting more. I would highly recommend Timmy's tours to anyone who wants to see the real Auckland!

Primo :) I'm glad I was able to show you a side of Auckland that many people don't realise exists. Thank you so much for your positive feedback. Timmy

I read Timmy's itineraries and emailed him to explain our limitations and asked if he could tailor a tour for us. What a brilliant day out where we visited many places that could only be accessed by car and by someone who knows the area well. Tim is personable, well-informed and willing to be flexible. Communication prior to the tour was excellent,even to a text the night before confirming pick-up time.

I recently booked Timmy to take my family to Snowplanet for a morning tour. Before arriving I emailed a few times confirming details and Tim was really prompt to answer my questions. On the day, he arrived on time and immediately shared his knowledge of Auckland. Being our first day in Auckland he advsed us of things to do, things to avoid and information only a local would know. The morning at Snowplanet was great fun and was a fantastic way to start our holiday. The great thing about Tim is he'll create a unique trip based on your interest (we would have done a winery trip if we didn't have the kids) or he'll give you the personalised tour of all the major attractions. If you're looking for a great tour guide, give Tim a go..... it'll be much better than being on a bus full of tourists . All the best for the future Tim.

I can't thank you enough,Tim! It was a fantastic, awesome day. We saw a 800-year-old Kauri tree and wandered along a boardwalk through the native bush at the Parry Kauri Park in Warkworth. At the National Park Tawharanui, we saw a flock of sheep, which my 5-year-old son enjoyed very much, and played in the sea. We had a breakfast burrito at The Love Shack in Matakana, which was the very best meal we had in our trip! Then we drove across the island, visited the Palm Springs hot pools at Parakai and went to the Black Sand Beach Muriwai. On our way, we saw cows, horses and sheep grazing in the hilly green pasture. We were fascinated by those views and thought, "Wow! This is New Zealand!" Hot pools at Parakai were very private, totally relaxing. We loved them so much. Usual bus tours would be tough for my little son. On the other hand, Tim's tour was tailor-made, pefect for a family with little kids. Above all, Tim is quite a knowledgeable, friendly, nice guy and we were very comfortable and happy to be with him. Highly recommended!
