We had a half day tour with Brian. He was a wonderful guide as well as a walking encyclopedia of knowledge of the area, it's history and its modern culture. We enjoyed every minute of his company. It was like spending a day with family.

Couldn't fault Xquizit Day Tours. Brian Norton was there when our Cruise ship docked and he gave us a knowledgeable, witty commentary as he showed us the sights between Tauranga and Rotorua. Then Anne took over and was a welcoming, friendly and caring host as she personally added Rotorua to our itinerary, which was most appreciated. We indulged ourselves Railcruiisng... More

We had a wonderful time in a beautiful new Mercedes with a relaxed drive and visit in Rotorua. Anne is a knowledagble and relaxed and strikes a beautiful balance between giving information and allowing for open relaxed time. Her recommendations for what to do and not to do were outstanding and she was very generous with her time. I highly... More

Ralph was our driver and tour guide for tour of Rotorua and environs. Ralph had a very nice personality and temperament and was quite informative of the unique thermal activity of the area. We visited the geyser (not so impressive since it is made to shoot up water as a result of an additive dumped in by the park ranger).... More

As a world traveler I can say that you rarely will find the kind of person Anne Norton is. Bright, cheery, honest and caring about the needs of her passengers.

We met Brian, one of the owners, right off the ship as described in the emails we got from the company. Brian is very friendly and really knows his area and history.
