Best tour guide ever! Steve is a class act. Such a comfortable bus ride. Great knowledge of New Zealand & Hobbiton. Highly recommend booking him as your guide. Mossop Honey shop was a great stop. Steve goes above and beyond providing delicious gluten free brownies, candy, and drinks. He overheard me mention avocados to my son and made a special stop for us to get some. This tour was full of wonderful stops.

This tour was amazing! Our guide was super all day having plenty of info, kept it fun, relaxed, and made us the best brownies and brought the best home picked plums for us! And bought great ice cream from the honey shop! Amanda was great! Hobbiton was awesome we loved it! Super natural well worth a visit!

Fruitful and satisfying time schedule for Tauranga cruise activity. Also, there was plenty of time to visit mt. maunganui after the schedule. Stephen(guide) was also the best and additional driver makes me feel safe. maunganui beach-mclaren waterfall- honey shop- hobbiton

We had the BEST day ever on our tour with Stephen!! It was a fun filled, full day of activity that surpassed all our expectations! HIGHLY recommended to anyone!!

Our guide was knowledgeable, excellent driver, answered all our question & very friendly.
