Magical Discovery!

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!

It was an amazing day!

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. Thanks for everything!

I will certainly be back

Gabrielle took my husband and me and our young son out for a walk. She is so knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna and she told us so much interesting information. I will certainly be back for another walk with her. She knows Waiheke like the back of her hand and she also brings great snacks!

Walking around wonderful Waiheke

Our family group of 8 adults met Gabrielle and Michael at the Waiheke dock for the Double Headland tour. Breathtaking views around ever turn. We learned about flora and fauna, island history, Maori 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 Walking by Nature tours.

Your customised walk ticked all the boxes for us

My wife and I are blind and we wanted an experience of bush and forest. It was a lovely walk and Louis was fantastic. A very special part of a very special anniversary for Karen and I. We would rate this as excellent with a big thumbs up for Louis. He has a great sense of humour and a love of the Island and its many beautiful gifts. Thank-you so much for accommodating us.

A nice getaway from my business trip

The Walking by Nature walk with Gabrielle was such an incredible experience to wander through the beautiful forests of Waiheke Island and take in the jaw-dropping views. Gabrielle was an informative guide and made the whole experience very calming and relaxing -- a nice getaway from my business trip during the week. As the weather turned after lunch, we decided to do something different and drove around the island to take in the rest of the sites. Gabrielle was so accommodating in also taking me to some beautiful art galleries (as I told her I loved art) to ensure I got my full Waiheke experience. Thanks Gabrielle for a wonderful day and highly recommend to anyone wanting to get an immersive experience in nature -- your mind and body will thank you!
