Kiwi Discovey uses bate & switch. They are more expensive than other tour companies charging at least $30 extra for "comfortable glass roof bus". Most likely you will not get this bus for your tour as it happened to us. The bus was late picking...More

We started the morning late (which we did not know the reason as I was certainly early to wait for the bus). As such, driver Bob probably did not give us some photo stops as advertised. He stopped at Mirror Lakes on the way to...More
