Very worthwhile doing and good value for money. Easy to find and would have liked to have done a second day of it so we could have got off at more stops. The down side was that the Maori Cultural show at the Museum was $45 each!! Certainly too expensive!
The price was right to see as much as you can see in a short time since we were on a tight schedule being on a cruise. The tour guide was very informative.
