An excellent day visit with plenty of opportunity to explore historic sites, see the rural landscape and meet with local people.
Totally enjoyable day! Everything went like clockwork, all transfers were seamless and well planned, with enough stops planned on the way!
the weather the tours and the islands were amazing well worth doing the trip
It was a nice trip and more or less as expected (average age of the group was about 60).
The driver was very nice and entertaining.
The split of the group and timetable in Pahia/Russell was more than confusing. I can recommend it and would do it again.
Excellent day out - comprehensive and lively commentary - varied programme - action packed no time wasted. Good value
If people plan to travel NZ during the Summer season , I would highly recommend Bay of Islands.Such a beautiful place and you can do several activities in one place,you have to stay minimum two nights to go around the area.Thanks to Viator and Great Sights for Organizing the tour.
Great day ,very enjoyable ,the tour guide on the day very organised.. The Bay of Islands would highly recommend.
Big day out! The countryside on the way to the Bay is wonderful. Luxury coach...great commentary. Treaty house was informative and the guide was very knowledgeable. Not much time to spend at the Bay of Islands though. Russell is a lovely place, but you only really get enough time (about an hour) to do the tour and then you need to hop back on the ferry to get back to the meeting point. There was time to look around at Paiha - which is a nice little village with interesting stores to look through.
I enjoyed my tour, it was long but I had the opportunity to see a lot and the driver was knowledgeable and gave a lot of explanations. I suggest to include a lunch in Bay of Island.
It was a very good experience! The scenery out to the islands was absolutely breathtaking!! I visited a small fishing town and wish I could have spent more time there tho. Overall, it was nice.
Well organised, tour guide is informative. Not a lot to see in Paihia itself so you need to organise your own side tours to visit the islands and surrounds before heading back.
Due to very poor weather, high winds and heavy rain due to cyclone over the island of Tonga that had taken place over a week prior to our excursion, it wasn't much fun walking around.
