My Saturday trip on 14th of September was cancelled, but luckily I could do the trip on another day because it was AMAZING!
Pick up location was in the very centre of the city, so it was easy to access from the place I was staying and later needed to get.
Mike is a friendly and easy-going host, that often checked in with each one of the group to know how everyone is feeling and if all is good.
He took us to some really cool places - wonderful waterfalls, nice hikes and amazing views, and as a cherry on top - lovely Piha's beach. Mike was nice to have general chats and he also shared some history stories about New Zealand. As well as great tips on further travels around New Zealand, as he has done it himself and knows the best spots.
So - I would highly recommend this trip because:
-> great host/driver
-> beautiful nature
-> reasonable price
-> small group and not feeling too touristy
