Louise was brilliant, she was so knowledgeable about Auckland, it's history, flora and fauna, structured the tour to make it varied and interesting. It was an exceptional introduction to New Zealand.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Shirley for the lovely comments. Hope you are enjoying the rest of your travels around New Zealand.

Did 2 tours w/ Louise - Auckland in a Day and Walk around Auckland tours. She was the perfect guide for our group. She knows so much history of the city and how to keep it interesting and fun for everyone. She thinks of everything! She made/brought us these wonderful traditional chocolate cookie treats for a mid morning snack (and had a copy of the recipe for us) and even gave us copies of the departure card we would need at the airport. Recommended great places to eat. Wish I had room write more.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Dana for both the reviews. Loved both days with you.

Louise is a delightful, knowledgeable and engaging guide! We enjoyed every minute of our walking tour of Auckland. She wove historical notes into the discussion of architecture, art and local culture. What a lovely way to learn about this amazing country. She also guided us on where to shop for the best values, from fresh fish to possum fur/merino sweaters. We hope to return to NZ someday and tour with her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: 'Oarsum' - thank you so much for the lovely review. You were both such great company and I hope you have a great day on Waiheke and love Lake Taupo. Hope to see you again and thank you.

We enjoyed our walking tour with Louise very much! She showed us all around Auckland on a beautiful afternoon. We saw and learned so much about the city. Louise is a great person and very fun! We had a great time spending our first afternoon in New Zealand with her. Julie
A wonderful day at a relaxed pace discovering Auckland's history, geography, architecture, art and ice cream outlets. Good attention to detail with a tote bag containing water, tissues, maps and best of all, local chocolates. And a bonus trip to a nearby volcanic hill for a 360 deg view rounded off the day.

Louise shared Auckland with us with a spirit of excitement and pride. On our walking tour, she gave us interesting insights and showed us hidden gems, such as a small park near the spaghetti interchange. She was full of information about the history of the city and its evolution. We enjoyed our tour a lot. JNR, Dallas, TX
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. You were all fantastic and it was so good that we could share everything together. Enjoy the rest of your travels in Aotearoa.
