Arriving in Tauranga we had only one day to see and learn as much as we could about New Zealand life. The weather was a little daunting but Bruce managed to magically get us to each of our destinations to either dodge the rain or the other groups of tourists. Bruce's trip with only 6 passengers gave us all the... More

Amazing day with Irene! Thanks Irene for fitting in so much in one short day. You showed us so much more than we could have ever seen on a cruise ship excursion. Your knowledge of the area is incredible. There wasn't any question you couldn't answer. My friends and I loved the time we spent with you!

He managed to take us around to see several things in the same day and in such a short amount of time while insuring that the tour is enjoyable and pleasant. I definitely recommend Bruce as a guide especially if... More

We were visiting New Zealand on the Sun Princess in March and had a tour with Bruce from Amazing Tours. He took us everywhere, including stopping for an "honeycomb" ice cream at the bee hives. We got to visit/view all of the hot spots including the geothermal valley, TePuia where we saw the geysers, hot mud flats and learned about... More

Bruce is wonderful. He is knowledgeable, pleasant. flexible and wishes to share as much as possible about the area as well as New Zeland in general. We have been all over the world and he rates right up there! We highly recommend booking with him. An added advantage is a small mini-bus which means greater service and beating the crowds.

Irene and her huband, Bruce, spent many years operating their travel agency before "retiring" and becoming tour guides. Their extensive knowledge of the travel industry is evident in the design of the tour. From our first inquiry email, Irene was wonderful to work with. She... More
