Paul is very friendly, respectful, polite and knowledgeable about Auckland and it’s history. If you have limited time his tour is a good way to see the place and get some pics. Only 3 of us on my tour and we all felt appreciated and...More

Paul Fuimaono (who grew up in Auckland) was our driver, and he did an excellent job of showing us all aspects of the city and surrounding area. He also did an excellent job of answering our questions about language, culture, and history. One of the...More
Thank you for your in depth review. We are very pleased you got a lot out of the tour. Having Polynesian and European ancestry, plus my Wife who is Maori gives us a very unique view of race relations in New Zealand. Having been born...More

I took this tour yesterday, March 25th. When I booked, I asked for a hotel pick up and almost immediately received a confirmation from Paul that he would pick me up at 9:55 am at the hotel. He was prompt, professional and full of joy...More

We booked this tour at the last minute when the rain vetoed our other plans for the day. Paul is an excellent guide! He's entertaining and very knowledgeable and passionate about his city. If this tour was offered as a full day, I'd do it...More
