Wonderful day. Our guide Peter was excellent, very friendly and very informative. Would highly recommend this tour.
Tauranga was a beautiful place. Our tour person was wonderful and took us to many places of interest - especially the waterfall, kiwi farm and honey bees. We were able to take many photos and didn't feel rushed.
very professional pickup, the guide and tour content excellent
My husband and I ended being the only people on this tour. Our guide Wendy was outstanding! She was very personable and obviously loved showing us around her area. We visited the Bee Comvita company and the Kiwi Fruit company which were both interesting. We had a lovely lunch (not included) and spent time touring the area of the Bay of Plenty. We also did a short bushwalk to a falls in a park. Most of the people on the ship headed to the Rotorua area but we had been there before. We quite enjoyed the day that we spent with Wendy!
Good tour, well presented. Only down side was we left 1 hour late waiting for another cruise liner to arrive.
our guide/driver, Wendy, did a great job of showing us around and we felt the tour was a good value.
Don't go. Guide could not be understood by anyone on tour. Not a problem that we had to wait for guests from second ship to arrive but was a problem that we then had to take a few people back to the cruise ship as they only booked half the tour and we had to go out of the way (waste time for them). The Kiwi conservation facility was mostly a buy sell opportunity and much more time was spent waiting for shoppers than learning about the kiwi industry. The stop at the honey factor was again a sales pitch. Best part of tour was lunch, but that was not covered. The stop at the waterfall was thankfully short and way overrated. The guide had managed to add an extra two hours to the tour and then tried to cut it short by taking a vote of passengers which was totally inappropriate and difference of opinion aggravated many people. Totally unprofessional.
Well I would not do the full day. The place they take you for lunch is not good at all and then the waterfall is not impressive at all. The Kiwi and honey tour were very good. We could not understand our guide at all and the tour left one hour late so we had to stand there waiting.
