My husband and I were in Tauranga for one day off a cruise ship in January. I had contacted Paul, owner/operator of Corporate Tours and arranged to hire his minivan for a private day tour. Paul does offer a selection of popular day tours for cruise ship passengers (check out his web site) but we worked with him to customize a tour. The minivan seats up to 11 passengers and I had no difficulty finding other passengers to join us.
Paul was an excellent guide and driver. Very informative and flexible and even made last minute adjustments to our proposed schedule.
We were easily able to visit Hobbiton as well as the Rotorua geysers and enjoy cultural performances at Te Puia. Paul was able to get us discounts at some of the sites and to gain us entry to a spa that wasn't even on our itinerary!
I would certainly contact Paul again and have already referred him to other guests on the cruise that were returning to the Tauranga area. Even if you don't have a group travelling with you, contact Paul. He might be able to have you join another small group.
Note: Payments are made directly to Paul, in cash, the day of the tour.
