When planning our port visit to Rototua, we sifted through tripadvisor.com and settled on Grumpy Ed. He met us at the pier (we were on a cruise), escorted us EVERYWHERE worth going and made us feel more like family than clients. When we stopped at a hot spring near the Museum, another tour operator pulled up in a "Duck" and told his folks "Say Hi! to Grumpy!" which all the folks did. The message was not lost - we'd picked a guide know and respected by the other tour operators in the area! Grumpy was a delightful host and knows the area like the back of his hand! He will tailor his tour to what you want to see - just let him know.
It is not likely we'll be back in New Zealand, but if we're in his neck of the woods, you can bet your bottom dollar, we'll be contacting Grumpy!
