Very good small group two couples, almost-private tour. Opportunity to learn and appreciate indigenous Maori history and sometimes turbulent history with European colonialists. My wife and I would have liked a more leisurely pace for the visit to historical sites, as our guide pushed us along to meet a scheduled visit to the Elms Mission Station. This issue cost the review one star. Good, knowledgeable guide.

This was well done and we got a good history of the area. I think we could have spent less time at the Elms Mission Station although it was interesting.

This was a great tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable. The van was equipped to handle at least 10 people and only four of us were on the tour. Couldn't get a more private tour. It was great and highly recommend.

Our guide was friendly and knew his city well. We were only 3 in a van for 8 so it was like a private tour. Even the mission tour was just us, so we really enjoyed it.

Colin provided a good tour of the Tauranga area, a kiwi farm, Mt. Maunganui and the Elms Mission Station. The only problem was no air conditioning on the bus for which he apologized profusely!

This was a very interesting 3 hour tour. Our driver Colin was very friendly and informative being able to answer questions that were asked. We visited the Elms Mission station and were met by some lovely ladies dressed in period costume that told the story of the mission very well. We visited the battlefields and drove up to the lookout with stunning views of the bay. We would recommend this tour for a reasonably priced and well informed morning

A visit to The Elms Mission Station is truly worthwhile.
