Had two excellent tours whilst on our recent cruise around New Zealand. We booked the Diamond package and the two days we managed to get ashore were very enjoyable and they gave us a great taste of New Zealand. The lunch at Rotorua was better than the cruise ships food!

This tour was very good . First stop was Rotorua it was amazing not even the torrential rain could stop our enjoyment. The guide explained that the wet weather made the geysers more active, we saw the Maori show and had a delicious lunch which had to be hurried as we were pressed for time. Next stop Hobbiton , what... More

We enjoyed 2 shore excursions with Zealandier. They were both excellent adventures with friendly, informative guides. In Auckland, we visited the War Museum, stopped at vistas for photos and spent free time in the seaside village of beautiful Devonport. We had the best seafood chowder at Manuka Cafe! Then, we took the ferry across the bay and boarded our ship... More

A special thanks to Grant, our tour guide from Zealandier tours. We had a great day at our port in Tauranga. Not only did we see the Pohutu geyser, the Maori cultural centre and Hobbiton but we learned so much about New Zealand. We really enjoyed learning about the cultural, the geography and history. Grant was very informative, professional and... More

This was our first shore excursion booked thru the TripAdvisor Viatour site. So, we had pre-paid for the 6-7 hour tour to Rotorua. When we arrived in Tauranga, Phillip, our tour guide, was waiting for us. After verifying that no one else was booked, we departed. So....we got a private tour for a cost well below the cost of a...

We travelled to Rotorua and Hobbiton with our guide Grant. Very knowledgeable and funny (especially the banter with us Australians). He also had a vast range of really interesting tales of history, agriculture and sport. Rotorua was great and the cultural show was great. One of the ladies voices was just sublime. We then travelled to Hobbiton. This was a... More
