We had a group from the Celebrity Solstice who booked with Xquizit tours for our port call on January 29, 2013. Anne Norton met us as we left the ship in Tauranga. We were escorted to a bright, clean MB, 12 passenger van to start a wonderful day of touring. Anne was very informative and we visited a kiwi farm,... More

Our group had a great day thanks to Brian and Anne. We managed to fit in loads of sights and activities thanks to Brian's local knowledge. From the moment we booked Anne and Brian made the whole process so easy. We'll definitely use Xquizit again and strongly recommend them to others travelling to this beautiful part of the world.

We came off the Voyager of the Seas in feb 2013. As we disembarked Brian was ready for us. From there we were taken to kiwi 360 and the cultural village in Routoura, where Brian gave us a full tour of the village (mud pools, arts and crafts and even a kiwi) before leaving us at the cultural village show....

We used Anne as our tour guide when we visited Tauranga on the Ocean Princess. We were met by Anne at the end of the pier and escorted to the van for the tour. The van was clean, comfortable, and in excellent condition. Ann delivered exactly what what was advertised and gave us a couple of other options as well.... More

What a great tour with Brian Norton. As a native New Zealander, he filled every spot while we were driving with history, facts and interesting items about the area. Since we were on a cruise, he was always mindful of the time and there was never a time that we were concerned about getting back to the ship in time.... More
