    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.

    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!

    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.

    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

    The trip was good free time at the village, the driver gave us a quick orientation then left us to wander. The site is amazing a nice mix of natural phenomena and old traditions.

    We just took this trip last week (early February, 2020) and there were 6 of us. Les was our tour guide - he did a wonderful job showing us all of the amazing sites in Tauranga as well as the beautiful drive to a KIWI farm and the Rotura Thermal property - which was an amazing experience for us all. He's a safe driver and was very informative, having lived in the area for so long. Our van was well equipped and very comfortable. We met the owner, Jan, and have nothing but praise for her, her company and for Les. We will definitely book with Zealandier Tours the next time we visit anywhere in New Zealand! Thank you both!

    We were on a cruise that unexpectedly visited Tauranga for 2 days. The fist day we did a hop on & hop off bus tour around Tauranga. The second day we booked a tour with Russell who took us on sight seeing tour around the town and told us bit of history of the region - very interesting. We then headed out of town to Comvita Manuka Honey factory, then to a kiwi fruit farm & finally an avocado farm. Russell was an informative, welcoming & good humoured host - very enjoyable.

    This tour booked as part of my cruise activity traveling on the Golden Princess, was a highlight of the trip.
    The day spent with Kathrin was a treat. She was mindful of our comfort and very knowledgeable and proud of her city. She took us to some very impressive places. I highly recommend this tour.

    My family was privileged to have Auckland and Beyond take us for 5 days through the North Island. We were able to see many of the famous highlights including a private farm tour and Beetopia visit that Peter and Mai put together exclusively for us. Their operation did an excellent job keeping us entertained, the Mercedes van was immaculate every day, and they strive to appeal to the groups individual needs. Any concerns one might have in regards to a reopening country can be shelved; Peter will seek resolution to your needs every step of the way. He was also kind enough to offer advice and tips for the rest of our travels through New Zealand. Thanks Auckland and Beyond!

    We cruised to NZ from Brisbane on the Sea Princess for 2 weeks. Having berthed in Tauranga we wanted to take a tour for our family group of 7. We met Roger Simister from Arrow Tours at the Port and he offered to take us on a day trip. We discussed and agreed on the price and time allowed, so off we set. Roger was a very personable man, a great tour guide and explained all about the areas we visited. Due to the fact we had some small children we finished our day after 5 hours which was excellent for our family group. Thank you Roger for our great day out in Tauranga and Rotorua and best wishes for the coming New Year.

    I had a wonderful tour off the cruise with this wonderful guy, Pat! The trip was full of information, he'll be there to pick you up, our trip started with the drive to Rotorua and we had a wonderful time there and it is such a fascinating experience to witness Wai-O-Tapu Geothermal, HUGE KiwiFruit farm, and beautiful sceneries(falls, rivers, mountain) on our side trips(For Instagram lol)! The Living Maori Village experience is unforgettable, you get to sing and dance with them and witness the famous "Haka". The Maori people are just like all New Zealanders(Kiwis) and the most friendly and inviting people I have been around. You will appreciate going around with Pat, such an amazing guy I would say. Worth it!!!

    We chose to book this tour via Viator rather than through Viking Orion. In fact Viking did not offer a true tour of the glow worm caves. We found the tour guide, who is also the owner of Tauranga Tasting Tours, Paul just fabulous. We were in a small SUV (A very private personal tour) and rode throughout the very beautiful New Zealand Farmland (Though brown from drought). We saw many different items and Paul had significant knowledge of the Maori culture, the farm and dairy industry, Kiwi birds and fruit, glow worms, hydro power and Tauranga industry. This tour is a must. The glow worms were worth the long trip (About 2- 2 1/2 Hours). The tour was very nice. The caves are well guided and the worms were/are beautiful. We did see the pair of Kiwis in their nocturnal habitat. We had to move quickly to meet our cruise times, so we couldn't dally. We also ate local food for lunch that was quite interesting and good. This is a perfect reason why to book outside of the cruise line. The tour was priced better than most tours by Viking and was truly awesome.They got us back in plenty of time to re-embark as well. I cannot say enough good things about Paul.
