If you want a nice tour of the area in and around Auckland this group is the way to go. The City tour is just that a nice overview of the city and main city sites. The Wilderness tour is not true wilderness but is a tour of the surrounding area which does include a rainforest and a magnificent beach.... More

A great 1/2 day tour that took us to the east coast of the island to experience the black sand & wild surf of Piha Beach. Next came a Park walk to a waterfall with views of the lovely tropical foliage. Our guide Wayne Thomas was informative & entertaining.

Went on a Great Tour with this company of the area outside Auckland. Guide was extremely knowledgable, covered so much ground in four hours! Strongly suggest this tour for anyone who has a limited amount of time and wants to see the beautiful scenery outside of Auckland. Ray Kloss

Absolutely fantastic. 13 hour tour picked up from our hotel in Auckland by wonderful guide Sean. We were five of us in a comfortable minibus, fabulous scenery en route and Sean really friendly, chatty and informative. Early start but we stopped for breakfast after an hour or so then onto the beach with the hot water springs and then a... More

These guys are the best in Auckland. I went on the Coromandel Day Tour with them and it was great. They go above and beyond (the owner kindly took my bags to the next hotel for me), the service is efficient, the tour guides very friendly and the range of tours is excellent. Highly recommended - way better than Great... More

Let me start by saying how much we enjoyed our tour of Hobbiton. Our driver was very knowledgeable and engaging. It was a wonderful tour. But what makes Bush and Beach truly outstanding it their response when, through no fault of their own, things went wrong. We were waiting for our 6:45 AM pick-up at our hotel when a van... More

This is a terrific tour. We spent the day with Wayne, who is informative, knowledgeable and entertaining. This was our first trip to New Zealand and our first tour once we landed in Auckland, so it could not have been a better introduction to this beautiful country. Thanks so much and special thanks to Wayne!!!
