        Rainy day to Cape Reinga
        Unfortunately the day we went it poured with rain. We still enjoyed the trip as the driver kept us really informed and his knowledge about the area was very good and kept us amused. Again the 90 mile beach tour went ahead but couldn't get out of the coach due to the weather. If the weather was good the view would be brilliant.

        Kawiti glow work cave tour and Opua forest walk
        Glow worms can only be seen in the dark, and this cave is particularly suited to it. Special lights were provided to the walkers and the guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. There were handrails for the narrow walk and we were cautioned to watch our heads (it is a natural cave, folks). The forest walk was also informative (we learned about the indigenous trees) due to our driver/walk guide. This walk had some ups and down terrain in a narrow forest footpath, but it was not too hard for me. (I am in 70s and not great shape.) There was also an unexpected stop to admire the work of a really creative architect in a nearby town.

        Kawiti Glow Worm Cave Tour and Forest Walk
        Cave tour was excellent with great commentary, very educational and amazing little glow worms. The forest walk also fabulous and the tour host, his knowledge was remarkable, an extremely likeable gentleman. 10/10

        Glowing review- pun intended
        Bay of Islands is lovely. We had great weather and Bill was a wonderful guide to the Caves, the forest with the 1000 year old Kapua trees and the town of Kawakawa to see Hundertstasse recycled public bathrooms and small town. Vans are small and able to get into areas the cruise ship tour busses cannot. They are prompt and make sure you return to your ship before they weigh anchor.

        A hidden treasure
        I place worthwhile visiting. We were lucky and had a guide just for ourselves. He was a young local boy from the region and he knew everything about the cave. It is really impressive to see these thousands of green shining points, especially at the ceiling of the cave they look like the milky way in a clear dark night.

        A special treat
        We nearly missed connecting with our group due to long shuttle lines from our ship, but they managed to accommodate us and it was a really nice tour, with a lot of variety. The forest walk was really lovely and tranquil. Our guide was knowledgeable and kind. The family that operated the glow worm caves were very welcoming and that was such a treat. The caves are huge, with high "ceilings" like you're in a cathedral in some spots. Lots of beautiful glow worms. We were very happy on this tour. Thank you to everyone at Mullarkey Tours.

        Overpriced tour and underdelivered
        We went on this wine tasting tour. It was most disappointing 1st winery Marsden was good but lunch disappointing. The cruise ship had a Novo virus on board and eating from a shared plate with one set of utensils was unacceptable. Second stop was a hobby vineyard owned by an ex. American and he and an American man on the tour dominated the time on all sort of issues not related to wine (which was ordinary selection) Our driver should have cut the conversation short and got us to move on. The last vineyard did not give any commentary as to the wine tastings and our driver left us and came back 40 mins later. We were suppose to go to a Craft beer brewery... that didn't happen.

        Well run tour with the right mix of experiences.
        We arrived via cruise ship and highly recommend this tour for those looking for independent tours instead of ship tours. Small group and well run with professional and knowledgeable tour guide. The glow worms are glowy, and the cave itself is also a stunning work of nature. The kauri trees are majestic, and the forest preserve peaceful. So glad we got to experience both the caves and forest. We also enjoyed the small lunch break at Kawakawa. After visiting the art installation, we wandered into a local grocery store and purchased several local snacks to try. On our way back, we were given the option of being dropped off near the open market for more shopping or returning directly to the tender wharf. Just a very well done tour that let us sample some of the beauty of the area.

        Beautiful and Tranquil Location
        Worth the visit. The outside surroundings are so peaceful and beautiful, the location is tranquil and quiet. We have been to Waitomo but still enjoyed this less commercial location. The walkway/boardwalk inside is in good condition and the guide was knowledgeable and easygoing. Felt the price was a little high at $40 per adult and $20 per child.

        Wonderful Wine Tour
        What a wonderful wine tour we had. We saw and tasted and purchased from 3 vineyards in the Paihia region. From largest to the boutique vineyards so informative and interesting we all enjoyed the day and we made good friends. We will definitely be back. Thanks Ken so much fun.

        Wine tour
        We had a fantastic time on the wine tour! Had some really good commentary on the way to the vineyards, a lovely platter. Then we went to the fat pig winery that was really nice to hear about the wines from the owner, we loved the white diamond wine! We also had to buy lemoncello at the next winery since it was so good!

        Not Happy
        Extremely disappointed!!! I booked the Glow Worm Tour as a Shore Excursion on my Cruise to New Zealand, through Expedia. In Bay of islands, ships are not docked on the port and use tenders to transport the passengers on shore. On 1st of Jan 2023, we were scheduled to visit Bay of Islands but due to rough waters the Captain decided to cancel the port of call as it was risky to transport passengers on the tenders. So we had to cancel our tour and we were hoping to get atleast some refund. To our surprise after hours of calls and back and forth we were told Mullarkey Tours will not refund our money and will forfeit the full cost of the tour. Other passengers who had booked the tour through Royal Caribbean got their full refund. My suggestion is as ships are not docked on port in Bay of Islands, possibility of cancelling the port of call is high and you are better off booking directly with the ship as you will the money back if anything changes. I lost money!! Save yours!!

        Personalised Vino Tour
        We had a very personal trip with Bill our driver who gave us a lot of the local history. The first winery was changed to the Restaurant at the Stone Store with a great platter. Kanui wines tasted were good and then visited the Fat Pig. Enjoyed the wines especially the sticky. Finished at Sovrano Wines with a good selection of wines to choose with a bonus of Limoncello liqueur tastings. Overall a great experience.

      This was probably the worst tour I’ve ever been on. Waited forty-five minutes beyond tour start time to wait for passengers booked on a different tour. Was told it wouldn’t cut the tour length down but did not stop at end for photos as stated in description. The oldest building in New Zealand was not kept up well or worth seeing. The lunch was good, however. Rainbow Falls was worth seeing but not the other one included. Waste of time and money. Should never wait that long for late passengers with a hard departure time like we had

      Hi, Yesterday, was a bad day from our point of view and the Cruise Ship's management of the tender process. Given the events, we are reviewing our policy with respect to how long we wait for late passengers. I can only apologize for the fact that you had such a long wait.

      Our tour guide Ken took us on a wonderful tour of the Bay of Islands, the glow worm caves was a highlight, so too the toilet designed by Hundertwasser. Ken was extremely professional and knowledgeable about this beautiful area of New Zealand
