Date: May 28/18

We had an awesome day with Claire. She is a very personable and knowledgeable professional. Auckland was the last stop on our NZ trip and though we've seen a lot, Claire showed us even more beautiful places. From the east coast of the city to the west coast beaches, we had a packed full day. Claire gave us history of the places we visited as well as info on the current vibe of the areas. She was completely flexible with our interests and made us feel completely at home. It was a great day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Doug for the fabulous review! I really enjoyed our time together too and it was good to give you a taste of Auckland city, the rainforest and a black sand beach all in one day. All the best to your both, Claire

This was our second day trip with Claire. It was so nice to get out of the city and see the countryside! Unfortunately, it was a rainy and overcast day for a good portion of the trip but that did not stop Claire! We went to the Visitors Center first. There were some beautiful Maori carvings in the building, a good overview including a video of the ocean area on a nice day. It gave us a chance to see the views that would normally be magnificent. We did get a chance to do a walk in the rainforest area

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: HI Ginny, so nice to hear from you! Thanks for the lovely review. It was a pleasure to get to know you both a little more on the second tour. Hope you do come back! Kind regards and all the best, Claire

Claire handled all the details flawlessly on this day trip, and provided many small details to make our journey comfortable and interesting. With many hours of travel in the car, she never lacked for interesting topics to be discussed, or insights into the area we were traveling through.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Dave! Yes we did have some interesting conversations! The Waitomo Caves / Hobbiton trip is a great tour that most people really enjoy even though it's a long day. Hope the video came out well! All the best for future travels, Claire

Claire was very prompt picking us up at our arrival flight, and this was a great way to introduce ourselves to the city and gain our bearings for future travel. Claire clearly loves the city and its history and goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable and consider your personal wishes and comfort. We did several short hikes around the city parks and lookouts which were much enjoyed after a long plane ride. Thank you, Claire!

This was a perfect tour because we had a short time in the port of Auckland while on our cruise. We got a chance to get a good overview of Auckland. Amazing to see all the parks developed from dormant volcanos. Our time at the War museum was limited. There are several beautiful carvings from the Maori's. A short demonstration of their native dances completed our time there. We drove around to the outer area of the city of Auckland before having to return to our ship. Can't forget the Anzac Biscuits!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ginny, thanks so much for your great and informative review! It was my pleasure to take you all around my city. Look forward to seeing you again! Kind regards, Claire

We spent two full days with Claire exploring the spectacular northern island of New Zealand. Claire spent time understanding our interests and providing advice prior to our visit. She then tailored our excursions as well as lunches to our specifications. Claire truly enjoys her role and provides a perfect compliment to her magnificent homeland. Thank you Claire! ....and by the way the only rain we encountered was when we saw another local guide so the rain was the responsibility of that OTHER guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David for the great review! I really enjoyed your company and showing you both around the various sights over two days. You have a good sense of humour. All the best for future travels, Claire

Claire was great for our group picking us up at the ship, touring us around Auckland for 3 hours and then taking us to the airport. She was especially cheerful and helpful helping us get our luggage into her van. This group of old retirees might have brought too much stuff. We were able to see the major sites and got in some needed walking also. She has a lot of knowledge of the area, presents it well, and related well to us. I recommend her as a tour guide.

Claire was a great private tour guide for the 4 of us that finished our cruise in Aukland. Claire communicated with us before our trip and met us right on time from the ship. She drove us all over the city modifying it to what we wanted to see. In Claire's van we could go places a big bus could not and see much more. She is very knowledgeable and obviously proud of the city she lives in. We also arranged to be taken to the airport for our trip home to the USA. We highly recommend Claire & this tour!!
