    They were there at the ship and easy to find .. they were fun and friendly always mindful of the time so that we were never worried about getting back to the ship on time. very informative and even gave us a goodie bag of food so we can see everything.. loved the tour and guide and would do it again with them

    We had an amazing day with Arrow tours.
    We were large getting off the cruise but the new owner Toby drove us to the first stop off point.
    Kerry was an excellent guide and made sure that we all enjoyed the day.
    I hope that the recent happenings in the world will clear soon and wish you every success.

    This tour was the highlight of our trip. Zealandier Tours were fantastic from start to finish. We booked this tour directly rather than through the cruise ship, and we had inadvertently got the start time wrong from our cruise ship by 1/2 hour, but Jan the director of the company was there to meet us and then drive us to meet the rest of the group at the first stop point - Mossops Honey. I can not speak highly enough of Jan and the way she looked after us and made us feel comfortable and de-stressed the situation.
    We stopped at McLaren Falls which was a lovely walk in the NZ bush, the driver took pics of everyone in front of the falls - Thanks
    Then onto Hobbiton - this is amazing in itself and is not to be missed, even if you do not know anything of the movies, the scenery is a photographers paradise - you could not take a bad photo even if you tried - Hobbiton have their own guides that take you through the movie set and you end up in Green Dragons Pub for a drink.
    The tour then continued back to the ship.
    I cannot recommend Zealandier tours enough, they are professional and very informative and organised and willing to accommodate any requests.
    They also get you back to the ship in plenty of time

    Thanks Jan for your company and service - outstanding

    We purchased tickets for this tour 2 months ago. When we arrived at the designated meeting place, there were 2 guides from Arrow tours and neither had any record of our reservation. Luckily I had my tickets and confirmation email. One of the guides Kerry took us on his tour as he had room. He was a terrific guide and we loved the tour, but Shane on. Katie for dropping the ball

    We arranged the tour online and Wendy met as at our cruise boat dock, perfectly on schedule. It was delightful to spend a wonderful day touring the countryside and visiting Hobbiton. She took care of everything and all we did was show up. As an added bonus we stopped by a honey store for a sample and view of active bees. Wendy is great company and knows the area well. She provided insightful commentary and is very pleasant to be with. Look forward to a return visit.

    Gary Stickler, our guide, was most informative and helpful...answering a myriad of questions. The drive was delightful as we passed from Tauranga to Rotorua, w/ great stops along the way.

    We did everything and really enjoyed this wonderful day out!!! 10/10. Me, and 9&7 year old girls.

    The hydro slide blew our minds. Fast, fun and we loved it. Great for 9 year old (did it loads) and mom!!! 7 year old did it 2 times too!
    Kayak was the family favourite, and Peddalos we’re really fun!!!
    Cold river this time of year (nearly May) but made it a hilariously fun trip.
    Definitely better for “older” or adventurous kids. We left little mr 4 at home, but he easily could have done the slip and slide, obstacle course, kayaks and Peddalo.
    Will absolutely come back again!

    This was an excellent day out. Keith, our driver and guide made everything easy for us. He was informative and helpful without overwhelming us with information. There were a couple of other minor stops along the way but the highlight by far was Hobbition movie set. We left Keith behind at this point and went on with a Hobbiton guide. I am a fan of LOTR so for me is was extra special but there were non- fans in our tour group who also enjoyed it. the tours are very slick and they manage to put huge numbers through the site without ever making you feel crowded or hurried. Fabulous.

    This trip was amazing, SO much better than we could have hoped for. We considered ourselves fortunate just with the trip and our guides, but then when we got to see the many dolphin pods, and got to swim with them swarming around us. Just incredible! We did get to see the lottery fish, so we bought our power ball ticket, and while we didn't win, we definitely consider ourselves amazing winners with this trip.

    We were very lucky to be the only ones on this trip that day, our guide was excellent new what he was talking about and answered any questions we had also the van was very clean. Started with a tour of the city then made our way to a kiwi fruit farm was very interesting and lots of different foods to sample bought quite a few things, the honey farm was good has a nice little cafe also very interesting. The just a quick visit to a avocado farm were we sampled some amazing avocado oils yummy. All up a great day would recommend this tour.

    Wowza, this is such an amazing experience, just like flying the real thing. Great for spectators also, we were even offered a cheeky little Pinot noir. Get yourself down there it’s so much fun and value for money

    The tour provided by Paora was absolutely brilliant. Learning about how the local community lives and embraces its geothermal environment, as well as the generations that come through really puts in perspective the special maori culture and beliefs they hold. Highly recommend.

    Very unique & informative. Well worth a visit! Not like your typical “excursion.” Worth every penny.

    We had a lovely chilled trip that started with cheese and crackers and alcohol free mulled wine.

    Our guide told us about the history of the area as we meandered along. Once it was dark with visited the glow worm canyon which was very cool.

    We then headed back to our starting point and back to base

    Arrived on a Cruise Ship (Arcadia) and covered similar items to those covered by the cruise ship's own tour but in a smaller vehicle and for a much lower price. I have no criticism of the tour or our driver. As is usually the case with independent tours; feedback shared with those on the ship's own tour afterwards, came out very favourably in respect of the independent tour. They are more flexible as to the length and variety of stops (if nobody is interested in a stop you quickly move on rather than have a fixed time stop), and calls can be made at places that cannot accommodate large coaches. My only criticism of this tour was in respect of the guide "allocated" to us at the Maori village; she spent far too long teaching us how to say the name of the village (repeated during the show), then took far too long explaining other things about her relatives, then followed some other tours that meant we could not get close to items worth viewing, then arrived at the show so late that we ended up behind all the other tours. This was not the fault of Zealander; we were just unlucky, and could have been allocated a better guide. A worthwhile day trip.
