I organised our daily tours Auckland & Tauranga online before we sailed on the Sun Princess 12 Jan 2014 and Jim was very quick to respond. His company was recommended by a friend. Auckland was a city drive trip and was very informative. Got to stop at some wonderful places to take photos. A fantastic day trip from Tauranga to Rotorua. Jim is a wonderful representative for both the Maori and the Kiwis in general. The small group structure was definitely the way to go, especially after seeing bus load after bus load of people arriving after we did. Jim is personal and professional and it was a pleasure to spend the day with him. I would highly recommend this company and his tour ... Jim was waiting for us on the quay side with his people carrier as our cruise ship docked in Tauranga. There were only 11 of us and it was a much personalised tour. We ventured along and saw a beautiful beach, then off to the Kiwi Fruit farm. The highlight was the visit to the Te Puia Maori Centre where we were given a traditional Maori welcome and entertained with traditional singing and dancing. Rotorua was a spectacular place also.
Jim has Maori ancestry and is very knowledgeable about their language, history and culture.
Overall a most enjoyable and informative tour conducted by a friendly guide who really knows his stuff and cares about customer satisfaction.
