My wife and I were picked up at the cruise terminal by PJ and given an excellent private tour of the Auckland area including the Fernery, Soljans Estate for lunch and wine tasting, and along the beautiful coastline and the Gannet sanctuary before dropping us at the airport for our flight home. PJ was personable and knowledgeable and provided us with an excellent day in Auckland.

Enjoyed the demonstration. Loved feeding the lamb their bottle! John and his dogs add a little humor to the demo. Plus there are many other animals you can feed. Had lunch there at cafe, was delicious. Don’t forget you can also add the gift shop to your trip.

We wanted an activity to keep us up and going following 15 hours on a plane and arriving in Auckland at 5:00am in the morning. Driver was late to pick us up at 9am, and then came in a van too small for the group. Her "plan" was to squeeze everyone in somehow, and then swap out the van for a larger vehicle somewhere along our tour route. The scheduled afternoon wine tasting was swapped to 10am due to this change in route. Finally arrived at Sheep World and DID enjoy the herding and shearing demonstration. We were then taken to another winery for a tasting, only to discover the winery was closed. My recommendation would be to hire a cab or driver and do Sheep World on your own.

Greetings Thank you for your insightful review. We will endeavour never to make an honest mistake like this again. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused, one bad review out of 300 is never good. However there are just a few points we have to mention after your tour that day which I need say. Firstly all our tours start at 9am, our driver arrived there at 8:55. Secondly, after you mentioned all that went bad on the day you some how forgot to mention the driver/ guide going “The extra mile” by purchasing each member of your group a bottle of wine by a world renowned wine maker with compliments of Coast To Coast Tours and giving you a top notch lunch at an upmarket café, as opposed to a sandwich and a beverage. I could elaborate about the other stops you forgot to mention but this would be in bad taste as we pride ourselves in being professional. We are deeply saddened by this review but we will take the critique seriously and strive to improve our service. Many thanks

Susan picked my wife and I up at the cruise ship terminal. She was very friendly, attentive to our needs, interesting to talk to, an excellent driver and informative during our trip. The Waitomo Glow Worm Cave is unique and worth seeing but no photos are permitted. Hobbiton exceeded our expectations. Susan handled all the details including pit stops.

We couldn’t have had a better day! We had used a different tour company the day before for Hobbiton and the caves and sure wish we had known enough to use coast to coast. It isn’t that the other company was bad, it was that coast to coast was better by far. The difference for us was the comfort of the vehicle and the size of the group. For sheep world there were just the two of us!! We had a private tour, which gave us the flexibility to stay as long as we would like at each place and to choose stops that suited our interests. I can’t say enough, book with them and you won’t be sorry
