Virginia (Ginny) A.United States
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 was an outstanding guide, one of our best guides ever. Our prearranged itinerary was a starting point, but we feel we saw so much more, with great stories about history and local culture. Claire also provided lots of tips on traveling in New Zealand and what additional things to do in Auckland. Thank you Claire.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Norman, thanks so much for the amazing review! I am so pleased that you enjoyed the day. It was certainly my pleasure to show you around. I wish you great adventures and fun for the rest of your time in New Zealand. Kind regards, Claire

Claire was terrific in showing us the beautiful coastal areas of the North Island and giving us the chance to do several hikes. Her choice of lunch place was exactly what we like: high quality, creative, casual food.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, thanks so much for the great review! It was my pleasure to show you all around the West Coast black sand beaches near Auckland. So pleased that you enjoyed the lunch as well - there is something for everyone on the menu. Best wishes for future travels! Claire

Excellent option for anyone wanting to leave the city and see some of the natural beauty of New Zealand. Claire is a true professional who works hard to make sure her clients are comfortable and enjoying their tour on their terms - no matter what conditions might be. You will not regret this tour or making use of Claire's service.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks very much for your lovely review Beau! It was my pleasure to take you both on the tour. The West Coast rainforest is my most popular and spectacular tour and the natural beauty never fails to impress.

A great tour by Claire! She is extremely flexible and went over time to make sure we saw everything. Very knowledgeable and also a fun companion to have. Couldn't have asked for more! Also, NZ is an amazing place! Do not miss it!

Faye KellyMidlothian, VA, United States
Excellent itinerary and tour guide. Good value for price. We saw so much more than anyone on the cruise ship.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks very much Faye for your excellent review! I'm pleased that you both really liked the day and got so much out of it. As you well know the big buses are unable to go to the same places as we did so we saw a lot more! All the best Claire
