Sean provided us with the best experience. Highly recommend this tour if you love the outdoors and learning.
My daughter and I enjoyed this trip immensely. Right on time and very environmentally friendly tour - that is always important to us!
Unbelievable scenery, a beautiful tour. The guides were knowledgeable and kept everyone interested. A must do.
This tour gives you a nice half day sampler of the western ranges and Tasman Sea black sand beaches, just under an hour from Auckland. Well led by a guide and driver pair with on-time shuttle pick up from our CBD area hotel.
First, great and accommodating tour company Bush and Beach. Informative guides. Waterfall was great. Beach views are stunning though we were not on the beach for the sunset picture as seen on the tour pic. A great compliment to seeing the western side of the North island and still so close to Auckland. Felt a tiny bit of time underutilized at park center, but otherwise all great good. Trees are indeed magical.
Great tour! The guide and the driver were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I was hoping for a more full on/harder hike which did not happen but each sight was beautiful and worth seeing. Had a great relaxing time.
This was a very enjoyable experience. Both Sean and Warren provided a nice balance between facts and details to personal insights which made the histories and evolutions of a varied landscape and its flora and fauna easy to understand and accessible without any prior knowledge. Thank you again.
