Our driver, Russell, was professional from way BEFORE the start to the very end of the excursion. He had to wait almost 2 hours for us with no communication possible from us, as our ship arrived at port 2 hours late stormy night. He was there, with a smile and a sign in hand, in the middle of the crowded and chaotic greeting area. Because of the delayed start, we had to make some quick changes to the itinerary, and I relied on his professionalism to guide us. He managed to get us into Hobbiton he knew the right people to contact, the last available slots, and took us there in time to eat this can be a problem with lines and preparation time at popular attractions, but he allotted enough time. Russell, a former educator, provided loads of historic and anthropological information along the way. He knew of some interesting, quick side stops so we saw the famous NZ honey and a kiwi orchard. He took us back to the ship with plenty of time to spare, even though his was supposed to have been off duty an HOUR earlier. The whole experience was comfortable, stress-free, educational, fun, and worth every cent spent. Russell is the epitome of a professional - a New Zealand national treasure. Thanks!

This was great! We really enjoyed our driver, Russell. He took us where we wanted to go and suggested other places that were lovely.

The whole tour was good and the driver/guide was very knowledgeable and on time. The only drawback was he talked nonstop which we preferred not to do it for the whole trip.
We paid one hour extra which we think it was overpriced when compared to the 6 hours of the trip
We were glad to have a private tour over joined tour because we had 12 people in our party and it saved time and it was catering to our needs

Keith was our guide from Shore Trips and Tours from our ship in Tauranga to Rotorua. He was a very good guide and driver and immediately asked what we wanted to do and he helped us plan our day. He called ahead to the Polynesian Spas to arrange our private spa bath experience. Then on to the Te Puia Cultural Centre where we saw the geothermal geysers and mud pots and had the opportunity to watch a Haka Concert. He took us back to Taursnga on a different route that showed a very different and beautiful part of the countryside. Keith was very knowledgeable and very laid back at the same time. It was a perfect day with a perfect guide.

We had a great tour with John! He was very knowledgeable about the area and very friendly. We started with a longer drive to the skyline/luge but he had interesting facts and information to share with us on the tour. We also chatted about the upcoming itinerary and made some changes based on having a group with young kids and adults as well as the timing and maximizing our trip and what we got to see. The Skyline/luge was a hit and gave great views of the city and then we were able to stop at some other places and see some interesting/unique sites. Would highly recommend this and seemed reasonably priced for our group size and time.
