Since I began visiting New Zealand in 2015 I’ve had to grapple with arriving in Auckland at the crack of dawn fighting the urge to nap in the middle of the day. My guided walk with Neill was just what I needed. An absolutely beautiful hime along the Kitekite Track up to the

It was such a pleasure hosting you and we're delighted you enjoyed the Auckland Guided Wilderness Walk so much! The Waitakere Ranges are such a spectacular place and one of the best ways to explore this magnificent place is by walking along some of the tracks, which are away from the crowds. As we write in our tour description, discover wild and windswept black sand beaches, untouched rainforests that are home to unique wildlife and ancient Kauri trees, dramatic waterfalls, mountain-fed streams and some of the most breathtaking views you will ever see. We feel very lucky and privileged to be able to host our guests to such stunning places as the ones I was able to show. See you back in Auckland again one day soon! Neill

You will not be disappointed when booking this tour. We went with friends and it was just the four of us as a small group. Hazel, our guide, catered the tour based upon our interests and fitness level. She was amazing and took us to some truly special and spectacular places.

Thank you for your wonderful review of the Guided Wilderness Walk and our guide Hazel! On the guided walk, you’ll discover wild, windswept, black sand beaches and virgin rainforest that is home to unique wildlife, towering ancient trees, dramatic waterfalls and mountain-fed streams - all within just half an hour of Downtown Auckland. All our guides are dedicated to catering the tour based on your interest and fitness levels, to make it the best experience possible. We believe that our Auckland Guided Wilderness Walk is a great way to explore Auckland’s West Coast while being active and we're delighted to read you did too! Ka kite ano (See you again soon).

Our Auckland Guided Wilderness Walks explore walking trails that are off the beaten tourist trail and feel the real essence of New Zealand. On these tours we keep away from the masses and try these multi award-winning tours in small groups. We walk on some of New Zealand’s most spectacular walking tracks, away from the crowds and into the timeless Waitakere Ranges subtropical rainforest. We immerse ourselves in the fresh scents and pure sounds of the ocean and the bush. We get up close to some of NZ’s unique indigenous flora and fauna, view soaring cliffs, roaring surf and spectacular volcanic black sand beaches. For people who are at least a little active and want to see more while being hosted by a passionate guide, this is the tour for you. Thanks for taking the time to write this lovely review, which we really appreciate! Neill Sperath
