Thank you for the great review. Unfortunately, we don't think it was for us, as we operate out of the Port of Tauranga, not Picton! We hope you get a chance to experience one of our tours if you come our way.

We were on a cruise and decided to make our own (cheaper) arrangements for a visit to Rotorua. We booked a local tour on the quayside which was considerably cheaper than the ship excursion. The tour and guide were excellent and highly recommended.

Hi There, I am in the process of booking this tour & just have a question regarding the "DROP OFF LOCATION" please? We will be arriving on the Emerald Princess cruise ship and I am not sure of where the drop off or pick up location is, I only have details of arrival time being 0700 and departure 1800 (6pm) Can you advise of what I should put in the drop off location please so that I can complete the booking? Thanks

The pick-up/drop-off location is the Port of Tauranga, where we meet you at the port gate. We hold your name up on a placard.
