    This day trip was very enjoyable, The scenic drive, seeing the countryside which was lovely. Our driver/guide Matt was excellent, his knowledge of NZ was very informative & he was very helpful with guidance & photos. The boat cruise was awesome, stopping at a beautiful beach for a leisurely lunch then back around the coast. A great day!

    My wife and I were on an organized tour of New Zealand. This Bay of Islands Highlights tour was one of our included activities that we could choose in Paihia. We got to see and experience a lot during our 5-hour bus tour. Our van drive Dyson was informative and entertaining. The van included both people from our tour and people from a cruise ship in port. My only complaint is that the back row of the 16-passenger van was too cramped with 4 people in it.

    Rather than drive hours to the Waitomo Glowworm Caves when we were in Rotorua later on our organized tour, we got to visit the nearby Kawiti Glow Worm Cave here and experience the glowing "worms" (actually maggots). The van stopped at the Puketi Kauri forest and we got to do a self-guided tour. My tour guide had told us that we would do wine tasting on this tour, but Dyson wasn't aware of that. However, he was able to add a visit and tasting at the Ake Ake Winery; several in our group purchased wine to take with us. I liked the winery and what they were serving. We stopped in Kerikeri for lunch (on our own).

    We also visited the Makana Chocolate Factory (tasty samples), The Kauri (Wood) Workshop, the Haruru Waterfalls, and we stopped at a golf course with a view of Bay of Islands. It was an enjoyable trip.

    The tour was just amazing. The sun was out, skies were blue and we were surrounded by the beautiful Pacific Ocean. With the “Motus” as landscape everything looked picture-perfect!
    Our Cheeky driver/tour guide, Lance, was very kind, polite and entertaining. We enjoyed his many stories about the history of the land, it’s people and their customs.
    Yes...I’d do it again!

    Awesome trip, shame the weather wasn’t on our side to get out to the hole in the rock, did see dolphins which is a bonus. Stopped at urupukapuka for a beautiful lunch. Staff were great, captain was exceptional ( he paid me to say that … joke) very informative about the bay of islands history and and awesome driver getting the boat turned between waves and getting us back safely.
