We went on this wine tasting tour. It was most disappointing 1st winery Marsden was good but lunch disappointing. The cruise ship had a Novo virus on board and eating from a shared plate with one set of utensils was unacceptable. Second stop was a hobby vineyard owned by an ex. American and he and an American man on the tour dominated the time on all sort of issues not related to wine (which was ordinary selection) Our driver should have cut the conversation short and got us to move on. The last vineyard did not give any commentary as to the wine tastings and our driver left us and came back 40 mins later. We were suppose to go to a Craft beer brewery... that didn't happen.

Many thanks for taking the time to give us a review. In terms of your feedback my comments are as follows. I agree the catering arrangements were not ideal, however that was beyond my control. I will speak to the driver about not cutting short the conversation at the Fat Pig. I will also speak with the owners of the last vine yard about the lack of commentary. Unfortunately, on the day of the tour the craft beer outlet was closed, this should have been explained to you. Can you please let me know who you booked through and I will compensate you for the under performance.

We arrived via cruise ship and highly recommend this tour for those looking for independent tours instead of ship tours. Small group and well run with professional and knowledgeable tour guide. The glow worms are glowy, and the cave itself is also a stunning work of nature. The kauri trees are majestic, and the forest preserve peaceful. So glad we got to experience both the caves and forest. We also enjoyed the small lunch break at Kawakawa. After visiting the art installation, we wandered into a local grocery store and purchased several local snacks to try. On our way back, we were given the option of being dropped off near the open market for more shopping or returning directly to the tender wharf. Just a very well done tour that let us sample some of the beauty of the area.

Worth the visit. The outside surroundings are so peaceful and beautiful, the location is tranquil and quiet. We have been to Waitomo but still enjoyed this less commercial location. The walkway/boardwalk inside is in good condition and the guide was knowledgeable and easygoing. Felt the price was a little high at $40 per adult and $20 per child.

What a wonderful wine tour we had. We saw and tasted and purchased from 3 vineyards in the Paihia region. From largest to the boutique vineyards so informative and interesting we all enjoyed the day and we made good friends. We will definitely be back. Thanks Ken so much fun.

We had a fantastic time on the wine tour! Had some really good commentary on the way to the vineyards, a lovely platter. Then we went to the fat pig winery that was really nice to hear about the wines from the owner, we loved the white diamond wine!
We also had to buy lemoncello at the next winery since it was so good!

Extremely disappointed!!! I booked the Glow Worm Tour as a Shore Excursion on my Cruise to New Zealand, through Expedia. In Bay of islands, ships are not docked on the port and use tenders to transport the passengers on shore. On 1st of Jan 2023, we were scheduled to visit Bay of Islands but due to rough waters the Captain decided to cancel the port of call as it was risky to transport passengers on the tenders. So we had to cancel our tour and we were hoping to get atleast some refund.
To our surprise after hours of calls and back and forth we were told Mullarkey Tours will not refund our money and will forfeit the full cost of the tour. Other passengers who had booked the tour through Royal Caribbean got their full refund. My suggestion is as ships are not docked on port in Bay of Islands, possibility of cancelling the port of call is high and you are better off booking directly with the ship as you will the money back if anything changes. I lost money!! Save yours!!

We had a very personal trip with Bill our driver who gave us a lot of the local history. The first winery was changed to the Restaurant at the Stone Store with a great platter. Kanui wines tasted were good and then visited the Fat Pig. Enjoyed the wines especially the sticky. Finished at Sovrano Wines with a good selection of wines to choose with a bonus of Limoncello liqueur tastings. Overall a great experience.
