  • Toru Tours gave us an amazing tour of Auckland. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and asked about our interests so that he could point out additional places of interest. He was flexible and had a wonderful and warm personality. We would definitely recommend him to others.

  • This is a good way for first time visitors - or even second time visitors like myself - to learn a little about Auckland before starting off exploring on their own.

  • Paul was kind, informative and very awesome. Got a nice snapshot of all there is to see and do in Auckland. He even gave us some great tips on how to drive on the left (correct) side of the road. Thanks for getting our vacation off to a great start.
