Andy was warm, friendly, and knowledgeable. He went to extra lengths to ensure we saw the highlights we were interested in and was flexible to adjust the itinerary to... More

(red stag deer farm, Lake Rotorua, waterfalls, Kiwi fruit farm, Te puia geyser and cultural center). Van was new and air conditioned. Te Puia is a must see!

This was an absolutely perfect excursion in all aspects. We had booked the "TePuia Geothermal, Kiwi & Maori Cultural Highlights" tour with them. Pick-up from our cruise ship pier on January 21 was perfect. The small tour size combined with the very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide, Andy Somerville, was an absolute delight. It is a tour that we would... More

Andy made the trip, great. He was very interesting and kept us informed. The highlight of the trip was watching rafters go over the falls. That was exciting. The Mauri show was great and the hot springs and geysers were mesmerizing. Thanks again.
