Thank you! Isn't the Bay of Islands one of the most spectacular regions of New Zealand, so steeped in history. This is where New Zealand essentially began on the 6th February 1840; the birthplace of New Zealand. We appreciated these lovely comments about our tour as not only did you enjoy a tour or the Treaty Grounds, the Museum, the Carving Studio, the historic Whare and Waka, but also a beautiful wiata (Maori Welcome). Add in the 4.5 hour cruise on the waters of the Bay of Islands out to the Hole in The Rock and a visit also to Urupukapuka Island and this is the perfect 1 day excursion from Auckland. Thank you also for the lovely words about one of our tour guides. All our guides are renowned in our industry for their deep knowledge as you mention but also their professionalism and affability. Thank you sincerely for choosing our tour.

This day trip was very enjoyable, The scenic drive, seeing the countryside which was lovely. Our driver/guide Matt was excellent, his knowledge of NZ was very informative & he was very helpful with guidance & photos. The boat cruise was awesome, stopping at a beautiful beach for a leisurely lunch then back around the coast. A great day!

Your photos are beautiful, particularly the one before you went through the Hole in the Rock. It was a picture perfect day and then to see they large pod of dolphins frolicking in the Bay must have been so memorable. Thank you for sharing these and also your comments about our tour and one of our tour guides, who clearly helped make your day even more special and memorable. Aren't the Bay of Islands truly spectacular and also steeped in history; the birthplace of New Zealand. We were privileged to host you on this magical and historical tour. Thank you for your lovely comments and choosing our tour.
