  • Thank you, it was “magique”! Our party of four enjoyed immensely our time out over the far end of the island. Michael was a great help in anticipating or answering questions as we went along with him at the wheel. It made for a very professional yet friendly experience. Michael’s love of the Island created a shared experience that went way beyond the call of duty. Would have enjoyed another couple of hours…Next time maybe! You are so good at what you do. Thanks for all the info you provided for the rest of our trip. We will be doing almost all, if not all, of what you recommended.

    Private Personalised Walk – 5 stars

  • Our family group of 8 adults met Gabrielle and Michael at the Waiheke dock for our tour. Breathtaking views around ever turn. We learned about flora and fauna, island history, Māori culture—Gabby and Michael shared their extensive knowledge and great love of their island. For that afternoon, we received the gift of local connection to an extraordinary place. We highly recommend Terra & Tide tours.
