Ian picked us at the airport the first day and then spent the next two days showing us Waitomo Caves, Rotorua, Raglan (new route), North Shore, Piha and Auckland vicinity. He even showed us where he lives, his boat parked at the wharf and went with us into the gloworms caves. We thoroughly enjoyed his stories, sense of humor, and his company. It’s like spending a couple of days with an old friend who is proud to show you his country. He drove us around in his Mercedes 10-12 hours per day and was a very safe driver.
