Day Tour to the Bay of Islands

Going to Auckland in early September and would like to take a day trip up to the Bay of Islands. Can anyone recommend a good tour company -- either Fullers or Great Sights?

Also, any comments on the Bush and Beach tours to the west coast?

Many thanks in advance.

WARNING-Green World Tours-Cannot give recommendation but one to avoid is Green World Tours .Did one day tour to Bay of Islands with Green World Tours earlier in July. Pick-up in morning was half hour late.Because of poor weather tour was aborted, once we reached Treaty House. Proprietor, Phillippa Dean , reluctantly agreed to credit of 30% approximately of cost. This was to be credited to my credit card- 3 weeks on I am still waiting despite e-mail reminders to her.

You will be fine with Fullers, they are a long-established company. Ideally you want to find a company that will take you up one coast and down the other, so you take in the Bay of Islands plus the Kauri forests.
