    Pick up and return to the ship very timely. Our guide-driver was friendly and knowledgeable. Far cheaper than the ship excursion and far more personalised. Recommended.

    Was a nice tour that didn't cost an arm and a leg, like the cruise ship wanted to charge us. They picked us up and dropped us off, right at the cruise ship port. Our driver was very nice, had a great sense of humor and was very knowledgeable. There were lots of stops, great photo opportunities, and we learned a lot.

    This was an absolutely amazing day trip and a great way to see more secluded thermal lakes. The walk down from the top of the valley was stunning with so many plants and manuka bushes around you. Following the thermal river all the way to the lake provided some really interesting views and finished with a trip on the boat around the lake. Our guide was so knowledgeable with a was real pleasure to be shown around by him. Definitely recommend.

    Nicoli, our guide, was so passionate about NZ & her locality & community. She was fun, informative and went above and beyond to make our day one we will never forget.
    Do mot miss this trip when stopping in Tarangua.

    Adrienne was very interesting! As a native Zealander, her Māori heritage & Maori information was personal & very interesting. She also went above & beyond with talk about kiwi & took us to see the vines & also planned a tasting of 3 different types of kiwi fruit & juice. We also received dried kiwi of 2 types to take with us! Adrienne stopped at a beautiful park (McLaren Falls) for us to take a short stroll to the Falls & beautiful forest. We also had a stop with delicious fresh huge biscuits & lattes! Wonderful driver & wonderful commentary!

    My wife and I along with another couple recently visited Tauranga, New Zealand on a cruise vacation to the south Pacific. While there, we took this day excursion to the Maori village. This endeavor was very interesting to see the native rituals of this beautiful New Zealand area. We enjoyed our time and would recommend this excursion.

    As a dolphin cruise, this was amazing. We dangled our feet off the bow and boated alongside them as they swam and jumped and played all around us! It was magical. I even touched one with my foot! Definitely the best dolphin sighting of my life. The guides said one of the pods was about 90 dolphins and the other was about 250! There were just so many swimming so close, I had never seen anything like it before. Unbelievable.
    As a dolphin swim, it was a bit disappointing (at least to Mom). We thought we were going to be able to jump in and freely swim with the dolphins, but even if we were allowed to, we would have only been permitted to hold onto the back of the boat and put our heads in the water to see them as it pulled us. When I learned that that was all we could do, I wasn’t as sad as my Mom not to be able to “swim” with them. Because, even though we found two HUGE pods of dolphins, we weren’t allowed in the water because there were babies present (NZ law).

    We organized Wendy to collect us from Tauranga port on a customized tour for 8 of us. Wendy was very good at communicating with us prior to the trip to help lock in the best itinerary. Wendy also rebooked a number of tickets for various sites to save some time when we got there.

    We ended up going to Te Puia, gondola and Luge experience and stopped by a kiwi farm along the way. Ended up at a beautiful beach nearby our ship.

    Wendy was fab and highly recommended.

    Easy collection at the port
    Friendly driver who gave interesting commentary for all parts of the tour.
    Tailored sights on return journey to fit in with timings
    Māori village tour was so informative. I was worried I’d feel I was intruding into villagers privacy but this was not the case.
    Explanation of the hot springs and how they have been used over the ages was absorbing.
    The show was both entertaining and informative. It was pleasant to see all age ranges taking part, especially the young lad with the most beautiful voice.
    As we were only two UK nationals among the US nationals on the tour it was enlightening to hear their views on the explanation of NZ lifestyle.
    I would have loved to have less time driving around the lakes and then be able to take the elevated tree walk in the redwood forest.

    Tauranga is a beautiful place and the best way to see most it is on the 2 hour mini bus tour. Dave gave a comprehensive coverage of all the interesting places. Make sure you go to the loo before you get on board as there are no toilet stops on the way. A good day though.

    We booked a 4 hr tour with Les during our port stop in Tauranga. Les was a great guide showing and explaining the cultural significance of many sights, the tour explained Maori history in general and in the Tauranga more specifically. As well he talked of the linkages to greater Polynesian culture. We went a little overtime and Les kindly finished the tour, and got us back to the shop on time. I can't say enough about how generous he was with his time.

    Excellent tour company. Answered all questions on email promptly. Pick up at cruise dock very easy and tour company worked with us as cruise ship was only in port the minimum amount of time for this tour. Te Puia facility is very interesting, has a lot of things to see and very educational. The day we visited was very busy at Te Puia and the Cruise Tours Tauranga guide went out of his way to make sure we saw everything we wanted, even doubling back on some things the Te Puia guide (required and included in Te Puia entrance) skipped due to crowds. Only issue I had was it was a little confusing to book this tour initially, as bookings through Viator/trip advisor were not working, so I booked directly with Cruise Tours Tauranga on their website. I mention this as an option so others can book this fantastic and unique experience.

    The tour was absolutely fantastic, it was four of us and we all loved it. Russell was so knowledgeable and showed us the best historic locations and the best spots for pictures. The views were absolutely unforgettable, and he did not rush us thru the locations, he actually added one stop to the tour to show us one more point of interest.
    We highly recommend this tour, we would do it again in a heart beat.
    We understand they also do the hobbiton movie set excursions, we just did not have time to do them. Russell picked us up at the cruise ship terminal and returned us with enough time to shop before getting back on board.

    Hobbiton was wonderful but there was so much more to this tour! We were picked up from the cruise ship pier and had a city tour of Tauranga with a photo stop at the beach. We had a short, beautiful hike to McLaren Falls. Very picturesque. We had a lunch stop at a fun local pub where we had toasties and beer -- not a tourist spot. We stopped at a kiwi farm where the plants were loaded with fruit just days before the harvest. The scenery all along the way including Hobbiton was spectacular. Our guide Toby was excellent. An excellent day!
