Best shore excursion in Tauranga, individualised and friendly service was outstanding!
Jan 2020
As the only excursion we pre-booked for our New Zealand cruise, we had high hopes for a great day our whole family of five (including teenagers and a young adult) would enjoy. Stephen met us at the designated time as soon as we got off the ship, and his service from that moment until he dropped us off again 7 or so hours later was excellent. As we were his only booking for the day we virtually had a private driver and tour guide for the day. Nothing was overlooked - he supplied us with bottled water, home packed snacks (including fresh fruit, savory snacks and his wife's home made gluten free brownies that we devoured on the picnic tables at Hobbiton!) Stephen showed us some scenic sights along the way, and on return, offered to take family photographs, had sunscreen and hand sanitiser for our use, and really had thought of everything we could need or want on a day out in Tauranga and Hobbiton. His friendly nature, as well as the little insights and information of the region, made for a relaxed and interesting journey. You also got the feeling that he was interested in who we were as people. Stephen also gave us space to enjoy each site on our own, and was not intrusive. Luckily he was not offended when our teens took a nap along the journey, and he made sure they all had access to the wi-fi in the van as well. Hobbiton itself was fabulous, the attention to detail, tour guide, and whole experience was memorable, whether or not you are a LOTR fan or not. I highly recommend if you are looking for a shore tour, or holidaying in the area that you book through Adventure & Cultural Tours, Bay of Plenty. Stephen even gave us a few recommendations for a self guided day in Auckland which we would not have otherwise thought to visit, and they were a hit with the family as well - thank you Stephen. Frodo has made it into our family photo album of NZ!

Other-Worldly Experience with Tour Company That Gives Out of this World Service
Apr 2019 • Couples
My wife and I were so happy that we booked this excursion with Stephen and Adventure and Cultural Tours Bay of Plenty. Their service was absolutely amazing and were largely responsible for one of our favorite days in New Zealand. First of all, we were the only two people who booked this excursion with the company. While it would have been easy for them to cancel our trip, we were instead given a day with a private guide. It turned out that Stephen's wife Amanda was our personal guide and she had such wonderful service as giving us homemade Anzac Biscuits and other snacks along the way. She was extremely friendly and conversational throughout the day.
Many shore excursions to Hobbiton go back and forth without any additional stops. In addition to Hobbiton, we were treated to a walk to a waterfall in McLaren Falls Park, walk through the rocks and pools of another large waterfall, stop for terrific photo opportunities in Tauranga and on the way to Hobbiton, and visit Mossop's Honey to see bees in their honeycomb. We were so happy to do all of these things without being herded around on a large tour bus!
Hobbiton itself is a one-of-a-kind experience. It truly makes you feel like you are in a different world, the world of hobbits! Again, we were delighted with the whole experience and would strongly recommend doing the trip with this tour operator.

Thank you very much for those wonderful words. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your day and that Amanda's baking was appreciated. We like to ensure that the day is about you, and providing you with the best of environment and best of service. P.S. it was also a pleasure meeting you momentarily at Hobbiton. Amanda mentioned how much she enjoyed your company for the day and helping capture some memorable moments on camera. Regards, Stephen.
