We engaged this firm and found everything handled brilliantly. Here is what we found. firstly,you can understand why this is New Zealanders premier holiday location. But there is more......forest fringed inlets,coves and sand dunes leading to popular beaches,one beautiful beach after another. Up the coastal cliffs to the volcanic peak,Mauao,still fizzes with lots of steam. By walking,and hiking to secluded... More

We had just spent a totally fantastic morning with Grant on the Bay of Plenty. We then all agreed to do another tour in the evening for the Glow Worms. Wow....The soft evening dusk greeted us with black swans dancing on top of the water and that beautiful time between day and night. Then, as the dusk left and the... More

Our cruise ship docked in Tauranga at 8AM and by 8:30 we joined a small group of friends for a full day of culinary experiences in The Bay of Plenty.

I bought a voucher for a seal kayak around the Mount nearly 2 years ago but after one thing or another (Rena crashing, high winds, broken ankles....!) I changed my tour to the glowworm kayak and am glad I did. It was awesome. Grant was a great guide and gave us a fantastic tour. The river was like glass and... More

Like the previous reviewer, my wife and I were on a one day cruise stop. Try as he could, Grant could not get from us in advance what we would like to do during this stop both because there were so many choices and because my wife and I couldn't agree (in typical couples' fashion). He was very understanding about... More

We really enjoyed this experience under the guidance of Grant. Kayaking on this attractive lake would have nearly been enough but as the sun went down we entered the canyon to see the impressive display of glowworms. This however wasn't the highlight as we embarked on a night walk with our head lights along a track to discover more glowworms... More

Thank your for your review. The worms need to take most of the credit though. They have been in great form lately. More
