“Wendy is a great guide who instinctively knows what tourists would be interested in. She also asks participants to tell her which aspect of the tour they are particularly interested in, so she can tailor her talk to suit requirements. It was such a nice touch to be offered a cup of local leaf tea to end the tour. Thanks, G from New Zealand”
“Es hat viel Spass mit Euch gemacht, Ihr habt mir mit grosser Begeisterung Whangarei gezeigt. Dir Wendy danke ich für die Tourenführung, dass ich an Deinem grossen Wissen über NZ teilhaben durfte. Es ist Dir gelungen, mich für die Schönheiten dieses Landes zu begeistern. S aus Basel”

“B and I went on this local tour on top of Parihaka. We both thoroughly enjoyed it. I have been living here for the last 26 years and B for all his life and we learnt a lot about the history of this hill. It was really fascinating. A from Whangarei”

“Very informative and comfortable. Wendy gives just enough information to digest and learn from, but is also expert enough to answer any questions that arise during her Whangarei tour / presentation. Highly recommended! M from Canada”
“I want to say how much I enjoyed the little guided tour Wendy took me the other day. It offered a lot, in a relatively small window of time. Insights into what’s currently happening here, and a bit about the local flora too! Wendy entertained us with interesting snippets of information pertaining to all sorts of fascinating things. From the history of Maori settlements and the movement of their people in and through the district, to how Whangarei was later colonised and by who. What Wendy imparted to us was filled with colourful little tidbits and identitying certain plants and their uses. Wendy delivered her information, thoughts and experiences with a sense of honouring and humility, and mixed with a good sense of humour too! Finishing with a cup of tea, harvested from the bush and made on location was the icing on the cake! Thanks so much for this lovely experience Wendy! L from New Zealand”
