Julia, our guide, a 5th-generation Kiwi, gave us a 4-hr windshield tour of various Auckland highlights with running commentary that not only showed us and told us about a few sites and views, but more importantly for us, set us up to appreciate various aspects of culture unique

It was such a pleasure to read your lovely review, noting we read this during New Zealand's complete lockdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic that has the world firmly in its grip at the moment. Hosting appreciative manuhiri (guests) such as yourselves makes it all worthwhile as we go through dark times in the hope that we, like many of our tourism colleagues, come out again at the other side. We have loved every minute of hosting our guests from around the world for the past 15 years and are fully planning to be there for the next 15 years and beyond since what we do is not a job but a calling, a passion that we live for. We started our business 15 years ago and have made so many friends in that time, have had so many laughs and met so many genuine and great people. We look forward to hosting many more manuhiri (guests) when the world gets back to "normal" again once this pandemic has subsided. In the meantime please know that we really appreciated you taking the time to write this review thanks! Neill and Ceillhe Sperath

Wonderful tour around Auckland with Linda. Great overview of the city, its surroundings and history. Linda is very knowledgeable and informative, yet engaging and entertaining, as well. Super way to see and feel Auckland.

We really appreciate you taking the time to write a review about your touring experience with Linda. Our private Auckland Half Day tours are a wonderful way to experience the highlights of Auckland city in comfort and style, especially when you have little time available in our beautiful city. On this tour, you’ll be amazed by spectacular views of ancient volcanoes, the beautiful Waitemata Harbour and Hauraki Gulf, Tamaki Drive with famous Mission Bay Beach, as well as a drive across the Auckland Harbour Bridge, all in half a day. We feel it’s a great way to learn lots about our gorgeous city Tamaki Makarau (Auckland) in a short time. Having said that, we also feel that it's even more worthwhile to upgrade to a full day Auckland Tour, where we can also incorporate what we consider the brightest jewel in Auckland's crown: the Waitakere Ranges subtropical rainforest on Auckland's West Coast.

We were taken in a comfortable mini-bus to a few specific historic and vista locations. Our guide, Sofire, gave us a good feel for the history of Auckland, including the Maori views. Her presentations were wonderful and she was very clear in her descriptions of locations and

What we are most proud of is our team of wonderful guides that we have built up and nurtured over the years. These are kaiarahi (host-guides) that don't just show our manuhiri (guests) our beautiful city Tamaki Makaurau (Auckland) and country Aotearoa (New Zealand) but open up their hearts and minds in a two-way communication so that our guests can learn as much as possibly about us and our country during each tour. We are delighted to read that you enjoyed your tour with us so much! Neill and Ceillhe Sperath
