Wow what a great 6-hour tour of Rotorua and surrounds, especially the Te Puia Geyser!. Irene knew exactly the moment it was to "go off" and we were there to experience it. Not to mention the small intimate and comfortable 6-seater van pick up from the cruise ship terminal, seeing the redwood forest and finally a kiwi fruit farm in action. A very enjoyable day out in the lust NZ countryside with the very pleasant Irene. We loved it. Highly recommended.

My friends and I (a group of 10) joined Amazing Day Tours for our 1-day visit to Tauranga and Rotorua on Nov 23, 2018. We arrived with Celebrity Solstice and were picked up by Irene and Bruce promptly from the cruise gate, with 2 cars, giving us a very comfortable 8-hour journey of the day!

They managed to show us almost all they had to offer of their region and we enjoyed very much when being driven around and at the same time given a lot of information about their people and land. Both of them are very knowledgeable about the region and Bruce had his sense of humour to keep us awake during his some lengthy drives. Irene is a very warm and lovable little lady, but she heads Bruce subtly and they make a perfect team for their business. We were shown the geysers and mud pools and we were there always at the right time to see the geysers burst to the highest point and with the best position to take pictures. The Maori performance of haka dance was quite an experience for us and I never realized Maori could sing like Pavarotti!

They took us all over the places. We made a stop to see their redwood forest, with very fresh air and clean and tidy environment. We also visited a kiwi farm and we were able to enjoy the kiwi flavored ice cream. In Te Puia, they suggested we tried a “Hangi” lunch which is the Maori traditional way of cooking food in a pit under the ground in ovens called “Hangi”. The lunch was very reasonably priced and we got the chance to “taste” the Maori culture. It was another add-on to our trip.

Amazing Day Tours is a perfect tour operator for going around Tauranga and Rotorua and you get way more than what you pay for. I highly recommend this company and I thank Irene and Bruce very much for their wonderful tour!

Thank you Katy K for your comprehensive review.
We both really enjoyed sharing the sights in our region with your group.
We certainly timed the geyser to perfection and your party will have some great photos.
It was a pleasure to meet your group.
Thank you once again for your thoughtful comments.
Warm regards
Bruce and Irene

We saw Bruce's van at the port of Tauranga. 4 couples went with him on a great day of touring. We saw far more things through him than the ship's excursions and the price was less than half of the ship's price. Definitely recommend his company.

Thank you Malcolm
It was a pleasure to show you our region.
We often get comments that our prices are considerably less than the cruise ships tours and we get so much more into our day.
We also guarantee to get our tours back on time and have never missed a departure.
We enjoyed the day with you and thank you once again for your post which is very much appreciated.
Warm regards
