This tour was the highlight of our trip. Zealandier Tours were fantastic from start to finish. We booked this tour directly rather than through the cruise ship, and we had inadvertently got the start time wrong from our cruise ship by 1/2 hour, but Jan the director of the company was there to meet us and then drive us to meet the rest of the group at the first stop point - Mossops Honey. I can not speak highly enough of Jan and the way she looked after us and made us feel comfortable and de-stressed the situation. We stopped at McLaren Falls which was a lovely walk in the NZ bush, the driver took pics of everyone in front of the falls - Thanks Then onto Hobbiton - this is amazing in itself and is not to be missed, even if you do not know anything of the movies, the scenery is a photographers paradise - you could not take a bad photo even if you tried - Hobbiton have their own guides that take you through the movie set and you end up in Green Dragons Pub for a drink. The tour then continued back to the ship. I cannot recommend Zealandier tours enough, they are professional and very informative and organised and willing to accommodate any requests. They also get you back to the ship in plenty of time Thanks Jan for your company and service - outstanding

Our guide Jennifer with Zealandier tours was fantastic. We stopped at the Kiwi bird house before going to the Glow-worm caves. Jennifer is a local and knew all the history and knew we were interested in the countryside and often stopped for photo opportunities, enjoying the landscape, farms, sheep & cows and bee keeping. Jan, the owner of Zealandier Tours provided excellent communication prior to our tour(s), as we booked several with her company. They are excellent and the communication is quick and the website is very easy to use. I recommend them highly.

Hi Evie Thankyou for stopping to take the time to post this review for other travellers to read during these difficult times. You certainly had your challenges with getting to NZ and Australia, and your positive attitude and persistance got you here and onto our tours and home again before all our countries have closed their borders. We were so excitied to be able to host you and to hear that we did not disappoint you. Take much care and keep safe during these times. We will all get to travel again soon. This is a time to stop, enjoy the quiet , hear the birds sing, watch the snow melt & flowers burst into bud. For us in NZ we are watching the summer fade away into Autumn. Kia Kaha (stay strong) and much Aroha (love) from all of us at Zealandier Tours

Shona our tour guide was awesome,she told us about so many things of Tauranga & surroundings all the way through to Hobbiton. Shona waited while we ventured in a Hobbiton bus with a Hobbiton tour guide, who explains all about this beautiful magical place with so many photo opportunities. There is also free cider, ginger ale or beer at The Green Dragon Inn. There is a gift shop to buy many souvenirs to take home & a cafe for eats & drink. After our tour of Hobbiton, Shona drove us to a lookout & McLaren falls, with a short guided walk explaining all the different plants & trees. We also stopped at a kiwi farm. We then stopped at Mossops Honey shop for free icecream. Then Shona drove us back to Tauranga & along the foreshore near mt Maunganui Thankyou for an amazing tour with so many highlights Highly recommend everyone do this well planned tour.
