During a recent visit to Paihia in the Bay of Islands we decided to do a wine,craft, chocolate factory and cheese factory tour with Total Tours. Wise decision, what a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Our guide / driver Shona "27" (not quite sure what the 27 stands for) was from the start, a bright, bubbly person with very sound knowledge of the area and its history back to the early times. Roughly 31/2 hours long, it is a pleasant drive in a comfortable vehicle with a series of enjoyable wine tastings, cheese tastings, chocolate tastings and various craft places.We can thoroughly recommend Total Tours ,so much so that we did another one the next day. Different tour and different guide, Terri who was equally informative and friendly as Shona 27.
