Claire was great!! She knew all the right places to see and even had special access (less walking needed) to some of them.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks James for taking the time to post the great review! Hope you come and visit New Zealand again one day. Kind regards, Claire
Charles ParkeUnited States
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Charles for the excellent review! It was my pleasure to show you Auckland - you were a very happy group! All the best for your next holiday! Kind regards to all, Claire
Jo Anne LamoreauxUnited States
We enjoyed our timed with Claire. We had arrived in town in the early morning hours so we had signed up for a short tour of the city in the afternoon. It was just right. We had enough time to visit several interesting places and Claire was extremely knowledgeable. We were comforted by the fact that we had her again for the whole next day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jo Anne for this great review! I'm pleased it all worked well for you. Yes, the afternoon tour is often a great idea when arriving on the early morning flight.. Best wishes to you all for future travels, Claire

Claire is a wonderful person--fun, friendly, knowledgeable. She knows the "back roads" and showed us some beautiful and meaningful sites around Auckland. She managed to give us a great appreciation for this city in a short time. We would definitely recommend Claire if you have an opportunity to be in Auckland and, in fact, we have already referred her to friends.

The weather was not great so Claire was able to adjust and modify our tour for the weather. She knows her stuff and does a great job.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Bill for the lovely review. Yes, it's easy to modify trips as we go as there is so much to see in and around Auckland. All the best for future travels, Claire
Diane PaulbeckUnited States
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!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Diane for the lovely review! It was my pleasure to show you around Auckland city and of course get you to the airport on time. Best wishes for future travels, Claire

Very good tour--covered lots of places in Auckland that we had not seen before. Claire was very knowledgeable about the area. We had a nice walk up Mt Eden for the views and got to see Devonport. I would be happy to do more tours with her in the future.

Claire was simply a delight. Informative, helpful, approachable and reliable. She was on time, catered to my interests and needs, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a local guide.

Clair picked up four of us at the embarkation of Celebrity Solstice with all our luggage and gave us a whirlwind tour of Auckland and surrounds and then dropped us off at the airport in plenty of time for our late afternoon airplane. She is very knowledgeable about her home city and entertained us for the five hours we spent with her.I would recommend her as a guide. Thanks John Magee
