A wonderful time, small group, good value, very interesting, Knowledgeable tour guide. You'll love it. Can see more and go to more places and photo opportunities than on one of those large buses.

Hi Michael, Thank you for your review. It was a fun group to have out and I enjoy having people ask lots of questions. I try and include as much variety in our local history and information about the region as I can but I also try and taylor the commentary of my tour to peoples interests as well. And it was a beautiful day too! All the best for the rest of your trip and safe travels. Russell
Excellent alternative for Cruise Ship Passengers not going to Rotorua
, Dec 2019
We booked this tour as we were not going to Rotorua and wanted to see the sights in Tauranga. Russell Christian from Wicked Wanders picked us up right outside the port gates. He was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable, and showed us the highlights of the area. (The Kiwifruit ice cream was incredibly yummy) The 4 hours went by quickly and we thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend this tour. Thanks Russell!

Hi there, Thank you for your review and thank you for choosing to come out with me. I'm glad you liked the ice cream. Kiwifruit Country has the ice cream made especally for them by a local boutique creamery using their kiwifruit and also using A2 milk which has had the lactose removed. It makes for a beautifully creamy ice cream. Safe travels. Russell
Beautiful Day on Tauranga
, Jan 2019
We were met at the gate as soon as we exited the ship by our guide and enjoyed a tour with only 7 others. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the day trip most enjoyable. The tour of the Manuka Honey plant was very interesting as was the visit to a kiwi farm.
Wicked Carol was great!
, Dec 2018
Really enjoyed Carol's happy and fun disposition as well as her great knowledge of the area and special-insider feel at each of the stops, especially the farms. A great tour to learn about the variety of agriculture and other experiences available in that area.

Carol our guide who is owner/operator was great and she made our day in Tauranga such a delight! The tour took us into the beautiful countryside of the area and offered us amazing views. We visited a Kiwi orchard where we were taken on a tour aboard their tram and then sampled various Kiwi varieties, jams and ice cream. We also visited a world famous Manuka honey store where we saw an active bee hive and enjoyed various Manuka honey samples and ice cream I would definitely recommend Wicked Wanders!

I went on this tour a couple of weeks ago - and was very happy with the tour / and presentation by the tour operator Carol from Wicked Wanderers. She showed us around Tauranga - which is a beautiful part of NZ. Carol had a real passion for the area she lived in - and this came through, strongly, in her presentation . All the time she was relating stories / information etc. of the area we were in. She went out of her way to ensure everyone enjoyed the tour. We went to a honey producing business - and I found the information she related whilst there interesting regarding bees and their structure within their communities. We also went to a Kiwi Fruit producing farm - and this was also interesting - relating information to me that I was not aware of. Thank You !
