Alan and Annette took 12 of us on an all day long adventure showing us some sites of The Bay of Island area that we would never have known existed. We all had a great day and they were both lovely and very informative.

We booked a tour through Annette for 7 ladies, while our husbands were on a fishing charter. She met us from our Cruise ship and we had time to shop at the markets in Paihia before we visited wood work shop, jewellery and art galleries. Did some sightseeing and shopped for fudge and local pottery as well. Annette was very... More

Booking was really straight forward over Internet before we left England. Confirmed pick up time and was prompt picking us up. There were only 4 of us on the tour. Annette was very knowledgeable and the tour covered a lot without you feeling rushed. Thoroughly enjoyable afternoon out sampling wine and crafts of the region.

The tour lasted a few hours and the places we visited offered great... More

Spent the afternoon visiting two wineries, Stone House, a chocolate factory, kauri tree workshop and Rainbow Falls. Perfect way to spend an afternoon with Annette as our tour guide, who was very informative and made the whole trip entertaining and leisurely. I highly recommend this tour to anyone in the region!!!

We spent an afternoon visiting wineries, & outlets for chocolate, fudge & craft, wood carving, gourmet icecream - & to the oldest 2 buildings in New Zealand - what more could we indulge in! The minibus was driven by the friendly Annette, & altho' it seems we packed a lot in, it felt leisurely
