About Rogue Pony Experiences and Private Tours
Rogue Pony experiences and private tours are about showcasing the Bay of Islands as one of the finest locations in New Zealand particularly seen from our unique viewpoint. Sit back, let your hair down and enjoy the comfort of our 4WD Toyota Highlander SUV. Or if you’re looking for a V8 adrenaline fix, ask us about getting the top down in our 2016 Mustang GT. We offer a range of scenic, historic, back country and art gallery private tours as well as hands on jewellery workshops, but we are also happy to cater to your own individual needs. If there is something in particular you’d like to see or do simply ask us. Post Covid-19 we are updating our vehicles so the Jeeps are unavailable :-)

Fabulous afternoon as soon as Mark picked us up from our accommodation. Ake Ake winery activated the tastebuds for both boutique wines and delicious limoncello. Lunch at Marsden Estate was fresh and flavoursome, followed by an offering of another 'full range' wine tasting. Great food and wine onboard and feeling very content, we headed back to our accommodation stopping along the way at Living Nature for a quick bit of skin care shopping. A fabulous time and connect of beautiful Aotearoa showcased by Rogue Pony tours. Next day we were met at the wharf by Mark in his stunning Mustang, the drove us to the indoor studio where we let our inner creativity explode with some gentle metal bashing to create pieces of art for both our ears - and our walls. Honestly, I couldn't recommend this more. Thanks Mark and Tui for a wonderful two days!

I had an amazing time with Tui. Making the jewellery was so fun, and I loved how she was so enthusiastic about teaching me and helping my ideas. I felt completely at ease! Thanks so much.

Mark was an awesome friendly & knowledgeable tour guide. Lots of information, showed us some sites and let us discover others ourselves. Comfy vehicle and good driving skills

Thanks you Andrew for choosing us to show you both around the Bay of Islands and to escape the Waitangi day crowds. Having time to enjoy sites at your own pace is what our tours are all about. Tui also loved meeting you at lunch while on her wine tour. Cheers, Mark.

Rogue Pony Tours are excellent. I highly recommend Mark and his team. Mark has excellent knowledge and history of the Bay of Islands and Norhland. He knows the area extremely well and all the back stories. As Aucklanders we have been to Bay of Islands many times over the years and Mark still managed to give us Information that joined the dots together from knowledge we already had. Mark also knows all the places to go of interest and some neat ones off the beaten track!

Thanks Debs, It was great to meet you and your husband while you were up here in the Bay of Islands. Tailoring a tour to match the interests of our guests is what makes this such an enjoyable and rewarding way of meeting people from all corners of the world, even the close ones like Auckland! Go Rogue, Mark (and Tui)
