Local private shore excursion with guide Kerry
Kevin_R, Dec 2022
Thanks, Kerry, for a wonderfully enjoyable and informative day tour. Arrow Tours was already at the front gate of the cruise port in Tauranga when the ship arrived. We only had four of us on the minibus due to others not being well. We travelled many miles, firstly through the Mt Maunganui area and then with stops along the way, firstly to Lake Tarawera, long ago formed by volcanic activity, where we had a 15-minute coffee break at the lake’s café with stunning views, and nearby the Blue and Green Lakes. We travelled to picturesque Rotorua with steaming sulphur geysers, where we were entertained at the Whakarewarewa Māori Village with their cultural stories and dance. Lucky to have a small crowd at our visiting time we were able to become more personally involved. Next was a lunch stop (lunch was buy your own) at a pleasant café where they served the best milkshakes ever😉. Our final stop was at the redwood forest. We had great weather on the day so we all enjoyed it immensely. Thanks again to Kerry for his great yarns and informative knowledge of his local area and the culture.

Robert_V, Apr 2018
I would highly recommend this tour. There were only four of us on the tour and the guide was wonderful. Gave commentary the entire ride. The geyser was amazing. As good as Yellowstone. And the sulphuric smell was not that bad. We four dropped off the guided tour of the geysers when the guide from the park wanted us to spend a half hour in the arts and crafts studio first. She said the geysers were quietand would be better in thirty minutes. Well, the geysers were just fine. Maybe she wanted to show us the gift shop?

Annette_R, Jan 2018
The weather greatly impeded our outing as it rained all day. Our ship was late coming in so we had a shorter excursion time. This meant that we literally drove to the mud pools which took 1 1/2 hours. Thats a long way to drive to see mud bubbling. We did drive another way back to see the town and stopped at a kiwi farm which was interesting. Overall our tour was good, but not great.

Quite interesting sites if you haven't been to Yellowstone, but the Maori Culture show tends to be very crowded. Be first in line. Mike, our guide was knowledgable and offered great insights.

David M, Jan 2017
Great trip however didn't set off until an hour later than expected due to them wanting to fill the bus up so waited for another 4 people who hadn't booked on line like the rest of us. They knew how many had booked on line so should have gone with that.

This was a well worth while tour and we are glad we did it. Roger was very informative and friendly as our tour guide. We would recommend his company to others

Jim R, Mar 2016
Roger was a great tour guide and driver for us. There were four of us, friends, that shared the trip and we all agreed that Roger went out of his way to make this an interesting tour of Taranga and Rotorua. We stopped at major tourist spots plus some of Roger's favorites. I think we were scheduled for 6 hours and to make sure we saw many points of interest, it was closer to 7 which we all enjoyed. I would highly recommend this tour.
