  • Amazing day with Cruise Tauranga 
    We organised a day tour to Rotarua on the day our cruise arrived in Tauranga. Guy was waiting for us in a mini bus when we docked. We spent an amazing day with several stops only the locals would know! The day was fun and interesting and great value for money . Because we were a small group we could be flexible with where we stopped and how long for. Could not recommend more highly if you are looking for a more personal and cost effective than the tours offered by your cruise line. We were traveling with friends and we all agreed this was the best day we spent in New Zealand.

  • We were met by Simon, our guide, at the Tauranga quay. An excellent and informative day out to the Kiwi plantation, Okere Falls and Te Puia for the Maori show and the Geysers. Simon's background as a geography and geology teacher make him a very knowledgeable guide and he kept us entertained throughout.

  • This was a private tour off of Celebrity solstice. Excellent tour with Simon. Very informative and well planned. 
    Noticed that even though we emailed in credit card info , that it was not charged until well after the tour was over. Would highly recommend this tour.

  • A great tailor-made tour
    On New Year's Day Michelle met our family of 5 at the dock and took us around the area. As previously organised with Simon our main criteria was that we wished to see thermal activity and go to Hobbiton. Michelle did this and more adding in Kiwi360, guiding us around TePui, magnificent viewpoints, interesting information and bottles of water when we needed them. Michelle made sure we had plenty of time to see every thing we visited and was extremely friendly. Highly recommend this company to anyone planning to go to Tauranga or Rotorua.
