Julie enjoyed giving me a tour of her home territory. She had grown up in the area that she showed me and therefore knew all about it and could explain it to me. I felt privileged to have her as my guide. I learned that the area she lived in discouraged the use of small bottles of water which I understand well for environmental reasons. She took me to a cafe in her community that she knew well that had gluten free food when she heard that this is what I wished to eat.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for such a lovely day out with you Ruth & I hope you enjoy the rest of your time here in New Zealand.

We spent a wonderful day with Julie in the comfort of her beautiful Rolls Royce. What a spectacular way to tour the Coromandel Peninsula. She is very passionate about this area because of her Family's history here. She is knowledgeable, interesting & fun to be with. Thank you, Julie.

We enjoyed our time with Julie. She had prepared an itinerary with a variety of experiences and was responsive to our interests and preferences. We saw murals, historical sites, a gold mine, and beautiful scenery. We learned a lot about kiwifruit and were amazed by the giant hedgerows around the fields. We had a delicious lunch in a little cafe that we never would have found on our own. It was a good day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I loved every minute of the day! You were such a great party to show around my area and I do hope you return one day.
Gary and I thoroughly enjoyed our day with Julie. She had a very interesting itinerary set out for us which was full of surprises and included a visit to her home, which was very special. The scenery was wonderful and we both felt this day was the highlight of our travels in New Zealand. Thank you Julie. And to ToursByLocals. We will certainly book through your company again...Bev Anderson
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much! Loved your company and glad you enjoyed the day. Hope you get across here again sometime!
