Born and raised in Napier, I moved to Auckland for 18 years, and then for the last 23 years have lived, worked and played in Rotorua and just love it. I have been in the hospitality industry in Rotorua and have been in tourism for the last 10 years and am very passionate about our wonderful region. From Geothermal Activity to Flora and Fauna to Maori Culture and Nature the list goes on.
I understand that a number of our clients travel a long way to New Zealand and want to make the most of their time here, therefore I will customise a tour to suit your preferences and being a local I can show you some unique places that the larger group tours miss.
Our tours specialise in individuals, couples or small groups (no more than 10).
A speciality is Shore Excursions from the Port of Tauranga to Rotorua for a day tour, we understand the time constraints of these tours and have you back dockside at least 1 hour prior to the sailing time, and as I am a local resident of Rotorua I know where to go and how to get there without wasting valuable time.
I have a range of vehicles from a Sedan to Stretch Limousines to Mercedes Sprinter mini coaches so that you may travel in style and comfort, full commentary, all vehicles are fully air-conditioned and we provide complimentary chilled bottled New Zealand water, and FREE Wifi on all tours.
A Recent Review of this guide
This was one of the most enjoyable and informative tours during our visit to New Zealand, Anne showed us all about the Kiwi fruit orchards. The best part was the show of the Maori culture. It included a visit to the school for carving of wood, stone and bones and the weaving of Maori clothing and fabric. The Maori also performed their typical dances. We also saw the hot springs and geysers and other geothermal sites. Overall, our party of 5 had a wonderful experience.
