Cruised on Celebrity Solstice and decided to use a local tour company for a change. Booked the 3 port Diamond package several weeks prior to cruising. Website easy to navigate. Booking straightforward. Jan was very efficient, and the information about meeting the tour leaders was detailed and accurate. The great thing about Zealandier is they will tailor the tour to...

Fantastic full day tours. We well worth the price and guides were awesome. Dunedin tour with Daniel from Back to Nature. Great guy, very passionate and knowledgeable. Viewed the countryside from some good vantage points. Went to some interesting locations and learned about historical facts. The highlight for us was the visit to the yellow eyed penguins. Perfectly (luckily) timed... More

Really want to thank Jan our tour guide for making our tour experience that extra special. We had booked a hobbiton and glowworm cave tour which was amazing in itself however Jan also took the time to show us the locations of the many attractions in Rotoroua before she dropped us back at our hotel. Jan's warm character and extensive... More

As we booked our tours online (very efficient set up) we hoped for the best - and we got it. Our tour guide Jan had a wealth of knowledge, any questions answered and her enthusiasm for this beautiful area was infectious. Visited a kiwi fruit farm, very interesting, saw white water rafting and had lunch at a lakeside cafe -... More

Our cruise ship was going to stop twice in Tauranga. So Jan and I exchanged numerous emails so as to organize the 2 days. The result was very satisfactory. For our first tour, we were taken first to the Te Puia geothermal area where we saw the geysers and then had a Maori cultural show. Very well done. We were... More

We booked a tour through Zealandier Tours from Tauranga to Rotorua. We arrived at the port and were quickly able to find our guide Graeme. We really enjoyed the tour which covered so much in the available time. We were on an 18 seater bus so we didn't have a large crowd of people. The visit to the Maori village... More
