Balwantsinh "The trip was excellent and fulfilled my expectation of a tour small enough to permit flexibility. The guide was very good. At one point we played with the rugby ball, including the guideon the beach. I can not imagine being able to do this with another tour company. The coach was comfortable and left enough places not to feel cramped. The accommodation could be improved, it was noisy in Auckland."

    This is a short tour designed to give you a free day (plus another evening) to explore the Bay of Islands area. The islands are beautiful and there are plenty of activities, some can be booked as tour add-ons or you can book your own from another vendor.... Read more

    The itinerary changed massively from booking to tour date. It made it so it was not what I wanted. They were inflexible about the massive change. On a 3 day tour, the guide should not have 1 full day off. This is poor planning.

      The prices were very competitive and what I really liked was that it was in my local currency. When I booked the confirmation came back in good time. Since then I have received more correspondence regarding the trip, which is good to see and very informative.
