Testimonials

From the people that know

"Pat was very knowledgeable and had a friendly personality so we all felt very comfortable with him. He picked us up from our ship and brought us back in plenty of time for sailing. We thoroughly enjoyed our day tour including our 90yr old mother who managed to walk around the Maori village with ease. Loved the mud and hot springs and had a delicious kiwi fruit ice cream at the Kiwifruit farm. Thanks very much Pat"
