Spot on , great venture out
Jun 2020 • Solo
Outstanding , really good trip out , Good sense of humour , really informative and takes you to some simply fantastic views / locations , Terry is a great guide , I’d defo recommend going right to the top of the kitekite falls as the views are unreal - a trip I will be booking up again once my mrs gets over which hopefully should be in the summer - id recommend this trip and guide to anyone who wants to see Piha , Waitakere at its best with a guide who 100% knows his stuff

Afternoon piha Beach and rainforest trip
We have recently returned from this wonderful afternoon tour. We were on a cruise ship and arranged to be picked up at a convenient location in the middle of Auckland. We could tell straight away that the tour guide and driver were not only knowledgeable about New Zealand history, flora and fauna but they were both very passionate about it.
We stopped at a bakery for lunch and were guided up to the rainforest views which were spectacular. Then on to the rainforest walk. We were informed the entire way around the beautiful forest and learnt so much.
We then travelled to the stunning Piha beach with its beautiful soft black sand. After some free time we were greeted with a perfect cup of tea and biscuits.
We travelled through Auckland's suburbs and returned to the city in the afternoon.
We would definitely recommend this tour. It was a wonderful way to see the real New Zealand.

Beach and rainforest in one trip
Feb 2020
This tour was a good way to see the west coast from Auckland. There was a good amount of time at both the beach and the rainforest walk. The guide was both knowledgeable and friendly. He addressed my wife's back problems by giving her areas to rest while allowing others to enjoy areas she couldn't get to.

Dec 2019 • Couples
If you want a local tour guide, who is fun, energetic, takes pictures, takes you to the best places to eat besides showing the picturesque sites of New Zealand, Terry is your guy. We had a memorable trip with him with a hike to the waterfall, the beach and some picturesque stops along the way. Money well spent.

Terry shows you a great time in Piha and Rainforest!
Dec 2019 • Solo
Was a great day spent with Terry—took us past his old neighborhood (don’t look at the giant spider) up to a cultural center where we got amazing view and pictures. Then brought us to an amazing cafe (make sure you get 2 pies with your coffee—it’s well worth it, and you burn it all off on the walks and hikes anyways). Piha was amazing, you walk the beach and find some great spots where mussels grow and waves come a crashing. The rainforest hike was really great and it can terminates at a waterfall you can swim underneath! Take the extra time to hike above the waterfall for a great view and extra dip. Then we took a walk basically on the edge of the country and you just have amazing views all around. Thank you Terry!

Terry is Top Notch
Dec 2019
Terry did a fantastic job showing us some beautiful sites west of Auckland. Each short hike was worth the view with some laughs along the way. The pies and coffee made for a great stop for lunch. This tour is a great option to see some landscape outside Auckland if you do not have a car.

Why not 6 or more stars?
Dec 2019
This tour was one of the highlights of my 16 days in New Zealand. Terry is an amazing guide--knowledgable, great sense of humor, personalized touch, multiple little extra stories--it is clear he loves his job, makes it his primary objective for us to have a great tour--simply put he is far and away the best guide I recall having. He was so good, I was willing to the same tour the next day with him--but had other plans.

Best Tour ever!!
Nov 2019
This was by far the best tour I have ever had. Terry is one amazing operator, his knowledge of the local places, iconic things like "Hokey Pokey" ice cream, and L and P soft drink, not to mention the historical detail made my visit here memorable. I have travelled extensively and this tour was worth every cent.Terry is a wonderful host, funny and personable I will definitely come back to NZ and book another one of his tours.

Day trip
Nov 2019 • Friends
Had a fantastic day on this day trip. We were picked up from hotel in central Auckland and taken to numerous places including Piha beach and rainforest. plenty of time in each place for pictures and taking in the amazing sights. Terry was a fantastic tour guide sharing lots of local knowledge and showing us the best places. He was enthusiastic making the trip very enjoyable. Would highly recommend this trip, the views are unreal. Must be done in Auckland and very reasonably priced.
