“A perfect small-group tour.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

Thank you to Bruce for a great value trip. We disembarked from the Sea Princess in Tauranga and were looking for a small and efficient tour. Bruce's eight-seater Toyota people-mover was perfect and enabled us to get on first name terms with our fellow travellers. The highlight was the visit to Te Puia but there were many other stops and sights picked out.
Bruce is an enthusiastic and knowledgeable host and a great ambassador for his country and only mentioned the All Blacks a couple of times.
We are so pleased to have discovered this company. We will be staying in touch with them re other small group tours run by them.

“Tauranga/Rotorua/Maori Show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

Bruce was an awesome tour guide. We took his tour with two other couples when we were in port off the Holland American Oosterdam in the Fall/New Zealand time. Bruce was a true professional. He explained the stops on the tour in great detail, and gave us pointers on what the Maori Show would be like. One of our stops was at a Kiwi Farm/Orhard. I had no idea how Kiwi's were grown, and found this an interesting stop. If you go to Tauranga, I would highly recommend Amazing Day Tours.

Thank you aquajean for your comments.
We try really hard to make the day both informative and entertaining and so pleased you have some great memories. We consider the Maori show at Te Puia to be one of the highlights of the day and really enjoy the welcome on to the grounds of the meeting house.
I bet you have some great photos and thank you again for taking time to give us your comments.
Regards
Bruce

“Outstanding service and tailored to my needs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Having limited time that day in Tauranga me and some friends decided to pay a visit to Hobbiton, where the Lord of the rings movie was filmed but we just wanted to have a quick ride so we spoke with several tour operators and luckily we came across Irene from Amazing Day Tours, she was very kind and provided us with just what we needed that day for a very fair fee, i do recommend her services as is just pesonalized the way YOU need to tour, not the way most operators want you to tour.

Her honest and informative way of doing a tour is something i will never forget, thanks Amazing Day!

“Great last minute tour; we stepped off the ship and talked with Bruce...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

We didn't make any advance reservations prior to our cruise stop. Bruce was in the tour area where we talked about great sights to see and for a modest sum we and 2 other couples had an amazing tour of the Tauranga and Rotorua area. A stop at a Kiwi fruit farm, a stop at an exhibit featuring the nocturnal Kiwi bird, a perfectly timed visit to the Pohutu geyser and mud pools, a phenominal performance at the Maori village, stops at the exhibits on carving and weaving and a tour of an old village site, lunch stop at a lake, a drive along the crater rim, and even a stop at a honey farm. There were plenty of opportunities to shop for goods and souveniers. Bruce was extremely knowledgeable and escorted us at every stop, finding us the perfect viewing site for each venue. We were on a 6 week cruise and considered this one of our top spots.

“Excellent tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

My husband and I had a wonderful full day tour of Rotorua and Tauranga with Irene Remnant of Amazing Day Tours. She picked us up at the port, on time, and took us to Rotorua. On the way we stopped at Kiwi 360 and she took us under the kiwi vines to see how the kiwi grow - very interesting. In Rotorua we visited Te Puia. Then back to Tauranga to see a bit of that area.
Irene had lots of information to share with us. It's wonderful on a tour to be able to speak to a local and hear their point of view.
It was the best tour that we took in New Zealand.

Thanks for your great comments on your day. It was great to have such enthusiastic, happy travellers. The advantage of small group touring is the personal touch we can give you and as you said good to talk to the locals and really find out in depth about the area. I love sharing our part of the world.
Once again thanks so much.
