    Mike is an expert on volcanoes

    Luckily to be the only person taking part in this tour. After picking me up from Quay Street, Mike showed me a book on volcanoes in MZ, and gave me a detailed description of the distribution of volcanoes in Auckland, the lattest eruption of the volcanoes and the itinerary. Very impressed are that walking on the basalt along the North Shore coast and walking on some volcanoes craters.

    Insightful and profound

    Tour guide Mike met us at the CBD meeting point & escorted us in his van for the next few hours. He showed us Pupuke Crater Lake, Coastal Lava Walk, North Head Volcano & Tunnels, Mt Victoria Volcano Auckland is situated at a volcanic landscape. These tours are a must-see which helps the visitor learn & understand its environmental history & how it affected life, before and now. Former military areas at North Head Volcano was most interesting. Military took advantage of these mounds & built artillery areas with lookouts during wars of previous times. For me personally, the most exciting & appreciative aspect of this tour was to walk on hardened lava.
