“Great Guide Great Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2011

What a great day. Our guide was there to meet us, we felt exclusive. We visited all the sites that we had requested and also site that we were not aware of.
We were more than happy with the tour and contents.... And it didn't cost us if we had booked a cruise tour.
All we can say is well done and we would be happy to recommend Adventure Bay of Plenty Tours to anyone at all. Hope all goes well fo you.

“A great day spent with a friendly, experienced guide. Very accommodating.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2011

The day we spent with Grant was one of the highlights of our 10 weeks in New Zealand! We had a wonderful time. He was an accommodating, knowledgable and experienced guide. We felt as if we had spent a very fun day with an old friend!

“Adventure Bay of Plenty with Grant Bradley is the best way to spend your tourism dollar in this area!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2011

I heard about Grant Bradley and Adventure Bay of Plenty from the official New Zealand tourism agency I-Site. Through emails I was able to tell him what we wanted to see in Rotorua and Tauranga and got his ideas about what was a must see in the area. He was absolutely terrific in communicating with me through emails and in tailoring the day to our specifications. My husband and I often talk about the wonderful day we spent with Grant and how it was the best investment of tourism dollars we have made in a long time. Grant is superb in his service to the customer and was so much fun too. If you want a very relaxed but inclusive tour of the area with a personal guide who really knows what he is doing, book with Grant.

“Great day of discovery in Bay of Plenty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2011

We contacted Grant via email and Grant was able to offer many suggestions for us to follow up. We decided on a mixed day of sight seeing and adventures.

We were met by Grant as we disembarked our cruise ship and boarded our air conditioned mini bus for a full day of adventure. Grant was able to tailor the ideas and requests that we had and included some extra stops which made the day more interesting. As we had a group of 8 including seniors, mums, dads and teenage kids, the activities that were provided were interesting for all of us and made our stop in Rotorua much more pleasant. From scenic wonders to thermal wonderlands, extreme sports activities and specialty tourism sights - we were left happy and satisfied that we had covered as many activities as we could in our one day stopover.

Thanks Grant for the personal service and a great time!

“Glow worm kayak trip is incredible. Fantastic guide and amazing experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2011

We were lucky enough to find out about the Adventure Bay of Plenty glow worm kayak trip from the i-site in Tauranga. It's not well advertised and isn't even detailed on their brochure but wow, what an experience ! Grant (our guide) set us up in our kayaks at dusk and paddled with us around the lake at Mclaren Falls whilst giving us some interesting stories about wildlife and nature around New Zealand. Once it got dark we paddled over to the canyon at the end of the lake to be greated with the sight of thousands glow worms. The kayaking trip was then followed up by a magical tour of the woods in the nature reserve which was lit up by glow worms and gave us a chance to see them close up with their silky webs glistening under the light of our torches. Fantastic trip and made real fun by our tour guide Grant.
