They will discuss the options with you on the day and make sure you see and do what you want, getting you back to the ship in good time. We can also pre-book your activities, this will save time on the day and guarantee you places which sometimes sell out.

You will see

  • Whatever you want - you can choose the itinerary

The itinerary is down to you, decide what you want to do on the day or let us create a full itinerary including the destination and activities.

Your driver/guide knows all the best places to visit, and can take you to places the larger cruise ship tours coaches can't visit. You could combine a visit to Rotorua with the Hobbiton movie set near Matamata, or go to the Waitomo Glow worm caves.

For that really special day out why not visit one of the world famous 6 star luxury lodges close to Tauranga for a memorable lunch, such as Huka Lodge or Treetops.

Like the idea of a Private Tour but there are just a few of you, then why not share the costs, just place a message on our "Tour Share" facility to find others on your ship to join you. You will first need to Register and create a "My Cruise" account. You could also post on sites like Cruise Critic or FaceBook.

It was great to have our own private vehicle with an experienced driver/guide, he took us to places we would not have known existed, such a great stress free way to tour, no more cruise ships coach tours for us.
