- 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 destinations and activities.
Your driver/guide knows all the best places to visit and can take you to places the larger cruise ship tour coaches can not visit.
You could combine a visit to Rotorua with the Hobbiton movie set near Matamata, or go to the Waitomo Glowworm 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 Lodge.
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.
- Your own driver/guide
- Any destination or activity charges, but you can pre-book these on the "Experiences" tab on the port page.
- Any meals
- Note that the seating capacity will be reduced by 1 if you book an additional guide or a foreign language guide.
- This vehicle is comfortable for 3 adults, if you wish a 4th person can be accommodated but would be sitting in the centre of the rear seat.
- We allow for a maximum of 400 kms in an 8 hour day. For tours longer than this there is a $1.00 per kilometer excess charge. Most destinations you will want to visit would be inside this limit. Itineraries can be discussed in advance if you are not sure what is possible in the time frame.
