This great day trip to Piha included stops at quiet & beautiful places of interest along the way, where frequently our group was alone. Mike, our leader, was extremely knowledgeable of the area, Maori history & culture & he encouraged a camaraderie with his friendly personality. The day was relaxed, flexible with timings & very informative. Excellent in value, thoroughly enjoyable & highly recommended.
I HATE tours...I like to do my own thing. Mike and Trippy was perfect for me. Went to three spots, we were the only tourists there. No dropping us off at shopping centers or anything. Would recommend 100% to everyone....and no, we didn't get a discount for leaving a review. Totally legit.
I think Mike is the best tour guider. We really enjoyed a beautiful day with him. Please book the full trip for $60. It is the cheapest rate in New Zealand. Thanks Mike for everything. Catherine thanks you for her free tour. 🙂 🙂
We had the BEST time on the Piha tour with Mike! I have no idea how I found this tour online, but it seems like I had to do a lot of research to find it, and I am so happy I did, because it was perfect for us. We didn't want a high-line tour run by one of the big companies; we wanted to casually visit Piha, and I had to dig further because there is no public transportation to get there. Mike is relaxed and a terrific guy; he's really amenable to anything, and just wants everyone to have a good time, and to share the wonders of the region surrounding Piha Beach with visitors (and locals, too!). While driving to the west, he shared his wealth of knowledge about the area. All the participants were friendly and happy to be with others. Loved the stops we made, and the views from the hike! I'm not a great hiker, and my husband wore an elastic ankle brace due to a sprain, but we did fine! Mike offered an alternate, shorter hike for me, and it was perfect. Still looked over the cliff to Piha Beach and Lion Rock, in all it's glory! Mike really cares about his guests, and offered to drive anyone to the local store in the event that they forgot to bring sandwiches for lunch. He was totally ok with all of us wanting to watch the sunset from the beach, and talk, ask questions, or just marvel at the wonders of nature and the late surfers. Every participant was more than excited and satisfied with our tour. The five-star reviews that gave me the confidence to book this tour are all true...this was a great day and a highlight of our trip!
The trippy tour in Piha was amazing. My wife and I were looking for a few relaxing days at the beach to start our honeymoon and Piha delivered. Mike was a great host. His shuttle was on time both ways, he was super knowledgeable about the area and gave great recommendations for things to do and places to see. He went above and beyond to make sure our visit was unforgettable (He even picked up some beer and wine for us as there is no place in Piha to buy alcohol for take-away). Oh and he's basically a professional photographer. Thanks Mike!
Michael was so amazing!! I landed in New Zealand a day earlier than my colleagues, but did not want to waste any time so I was looking for a guided tour I could do as a solo traveller. Michael showed us some really neat local spots where there were no other tourists. I also asked Michael about taxi prices since my taxi from the airport that morning was extremely expensive ($100 NZD!!!) and he gave me his friend's business card who offers transportation to and from the airport for a much more reasonable $20 NZD each way. This advice helped both me and my friends save a lot of money and trouble. Michael was so knowledgeable and so much fun! We really got to see a lot in just one day, and for a very reasonable price. The tour is well organized and I was truly shocked when he told me he only began this business about 9 months ago. 10/10 would recommend, especially for solo travellers! Thank you Michael!
I knew as soon as I arrived in Auckland I wanted to go to Piha for a day trip and came across Trippy in the Rough Guide to NZ. Mike offers a fantastic service, great conversation, knows a lot about the area and about NZ in general, and happy to help you in anyway he can. Top bloke with a top business. 11/10 would recommend to anyone
We love this tour.Mike is very knowledgable and friendly. I definitely recommend this tour for every one.
Had the best time ever on this day trip. I didn't have much time in Auckland and I randomly stumbled across this trip and decided to give it a try. Little did I know it would be one of the best experiences ever. I booked it alone and was planning on doing my own thing. However, Mike was very engaging of everyone and encouraged conversation, making it for a great opportunity to meet and get to know others from all around the world. Was an overall amazing experience. Saw some of the prettiest sights possible and learned a lot from Mike and his never ending trail of facts! 10/10 would recommend this day trip for anyone!
