This was our first shore excursion booked thru the TripAdvisor Viatour site. So, we had pre-paid for the 6-7 hour tour to Rotorua. When we arrived in Tauranga, Phillip, our tour guide, was waiting for us. After verifying that no one else was booked, we departed. So....we got a private tour for a cost well below the cost of a...

We travelled to Rotorua and Hobbiton with our guide Grant. Very knowledgeable and funny (especially the banter with us Australians). He also had a vast range of really interesting tales of history, agriculture and sport. Rotorua was great and the cultural show was great. One of the ladies voices was just sublime. We then travelled to Hobbiton. This was a... More

There was a big board with all the names of those who booked this tour waiting for us as we left our ship - the Golden Princess. Our tour guide was courteous, knowledgeable and patient. We stopped at the Kiwi fruit place which was really interesting before making our way into the Maori village and thermal pools. Our Maori guide... More

We booked 3 shore excursions with Zealandier - Hobbiton and Rotorua in Tauranga, a custom tour of Akaroa/Christchurch that they used Tours South and the Best of Dunedin that they used Back to Nature tours. Zealandier's staff and Jan were very responsive at all times and organized in terms of the booking process. They gave us the flexibility to customize... More

I booked this tour about a fortnight before I arrived. I arrived by cruise ship and our guide Duncan was at the end of the pier, very easy to find and very friendly. He drove a small group of us out to Hobbiton in a comfortable van. It was about an hours drive to Hobbiton but we arrived early giving... More

We booked three tours online with Jan about a month before our cruise. During the course of several email exchanges she replied promptly, answered all queries and went that extra mile to accommodate us. We were picked up at the arranged meeting places on time, all tour guides were very professional, informative and entertains. The guides ensured everything ran smoothly... More

We very much enjoyed to tour we took with Zealandier tours when our cruise ship was in Tauranga. Our guide Grant, was informative and funny. The van was comfortable, and the group size small enough that it made the tour experience very pleasant. We visited the thermal areas in Rotorua and went to a very interesting Maori show. We even...

Tour messed up from the start due to Celebrity changing docking time from 8am to 10:45am. Guide di a good job of adjusting, but we missed out on somethings. Zealander did a good job under bad circumstances.
