OUR PICK-UPS ARE FROM INNER AUCKLAND CITY
We DO NOT advocate “Child under 5 years free if not occupying a seat” as brochured by some tour companies. Certificate of Fitness (COF) Passenger Service vehicles, have an allotted amount of passengers they are allowed to carry; i.e. one passenger per one seat-belt, (be the passenger 1 day old or 200 years old!). A COF vehicle that has seat-belts fitted (nowdays what vehicles don’t??) cannot exceed this number. You find this number on the little metal plate inside such vehicles.
The operation of giving free transport to under 5 year-olds if “not occupying a seat” is ILLEGAL .
It absolutely horrifies us to see tour companies openly state “free transport to under 5 year-olds if not occupying a seat”, especially when many of these companies are Qualmark Endorsed & Tourism Industry members! …(see NZ Law below)
Our Auckland sightseeing tours is via our luxurious air-conditioned mini coach. Our vehicles are serviced regularly [and locally], and we are Registered with the Auckland Council to legally enter Parks and Reserves. We do carry coats, but advise you to bring your own personal extras, and for comfort it is best to wear comfortable walking shoes.
