We were on a Princess Cruise and, as always, found that booking locally was much better value than a ship's cruise. The guarantee to wait if the ship was late and to have us back on time or transport us to the next port was very reassuring. After a drive round Tauranga we headed to Rotorua with a couple of...

We were on a Celebrity Cruise in February and booked the Diamond Package tour that consisted of Tauranga, Akaroa, and Dundedin. All of our tour guides were outstanding and we had a great time. Loved our tour with Grant in Akaroa visiting Hobbiton Movie set. It was very interesting on how the director acquired this location for his films. Beautiful... More

Having booked a 17 night cruise on the Celebrity Solstice leaving Auckland on the 8th Feb, we were looking to do tours in Tauranga, Akaroa and Dunedin. On-line we found your company doing all 3 ports with pickups at the cruise terminals. We found your company excellent to deal with replying to our queries promptly. The guides were knowledgeable, friendly... More

We had a great experience with Zealandier. Their tour guide picked us up at the pier, drove us to Hobbiton, waited for us the whole time. Lunch was included, so she organized the meal. On the drive back she even offered to take us to another park to show us a pretty waterfall. She helped carry our baby in the... More

We were very impressed with our tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and very willing to accommodate every one of our requests. He even knew where to stop to try the local ice cream (which was well worth the stop). I would not hesitate to use this company again.

I booked our Rotorua Thermal Wonderland and Maori tour online. I received a confirmation email from Jan. Our ship the Voyager of the Seas was late docking in Tauranga. We met our tour guide and driver Robin just outside the port gate and he was polite and courteous. Once the mini bus was filled Robin advised us it would be... More

One of the reasons I wanted to go to New Zealand was to go the the film site, Hobbiton, near Matamata. The cruise line we used, Oceania, had no excursions there so I was on my own to find a way to get there. Zealandier Tours had a range of options for length of time and combination of attractions (hot... More

Like many of the reviews here I did a lot of research to find a tour company who could provide a great onshore experience. Prior to our departure from Sydney on the Sun Pricess we booked the Napier WOW Excursion and all communication was effortless. We were given clear instructions on what to do once our ship docked and were... More

Hi Patrizia Thank you for taking the time to post on TripAdvisor, it certainly is a fantastic service to promote a companies overview and we are very grateful that people like yourself take the time to do this .

Picked up at the mount. Brief tour of tauranga and off to rotarua with a informative and interesting commentary. Good look around rotarua and then at hobbiton. All in all great day and well worth the money
