We booked this trip from the Trip Advisor website. Great trip. Leisure Tours had an itinerary at our Auckland hotel upon our check-in. It provided the specifics for our trip which included being picked up from our Auckland hotel and taken to the bus transfer location.

Thank you for the great review! I'm pleased you enjoyed your 3-day tour through the Bay of Islands. The bay itself is beautiful and is a hugely popular due to its stunning beaches and close proximity to Auckland. We do our very best to ensure that your trip is well organized so that everything is clear on your itinerary and the tour goes as smoothly as possible. With regards to your room, we always ask for a room overlooking the bay when booking as it adds to the customer experience. It's not always possible when the hotel is fully booked, but we tend to get those rooms if they're available. Our goal is to make sure your tour is as organized and memorable as possible. It's great to see that we achieved this with your recent tour! Thanks again for the review and we hope you return to New Zealand soon! All the best!

Not a tour, but a collection of coupons for individual tours you could book yourself for a third of the price. There are two major companies, Explorer and Great Sights, and a few major tours: Cape Reinga and 90-mile beach, and Bay of Islands and Hole in the Rock. Explorer is

Thank you for taking the time to submit your review of the tour, it is unfortunate however, that the contents are simply untrue and misleading. We can see from your booking that it was made through an online reseller at a price we have no idea of and in US$. We can state unequivocally that had the tour been booked directly with us and through our own website www.indepedent-touring.com you could not book this package cheaper yourself, it is just not possible! Furthermore, this tour was taken at the height of the New Zealand tourist season when there is no available accommodation unless you are a tourism company like ours holding existing allocations. The reference in the review to booking.com is a complete fabrication. Should anyone be in any doubt as to whether the review by reprof has any substance please see all of our other reviews for this tour, including one made on the 2nd February 2018, two reviews below.

There might be a lot of travel involved but our guide, Kenny, kept us informed and shared his local knowledge through out the journey. He was attentive and answered questions. He looked after us at comfort stops and when we arrived in Paihia. It was a delight to have him
