With only two of us we opted for the very comfortable BMW and what a great day we had! Our time was short so asked Julie for a customized tour: Te Puia and Buried Village (Julie's excellent suggestion). These venues plus lunch fit comfortably in the time we had without rushing from site to site as the bus excursions do. A car with your own local expert is the way to go. BTW, if there isn't enough to talk about with all the sights, try old cars or Irish bands.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your kind words. I enjoyed the day with you very much and hope you come back to NZ again.
