Collin was great. Personable and a wealth of knowledge. We took a tour in another location the next day where the tour guide didn't know the annual rainfall when we asked. We said Collin would have known!
He was also able to talk and drive safely. A great day with him and only 6 passengers which was another plus.
Thank you, Collin!

This tour was the perfect fit for us, not too long, but with plenty of information about the places and things we were seeing. Interesting to learn about how kiwi grow and the local culture.

It was more than we could have hoped for. It was a detailed view of Tauranga and lots of cultural and historic information in addition. The pace was perfect and the views were stunning! Could not recommend it highly enough. And Doug, as a long time resident, was a great resource.
