What could be better?

Very nice day with a great overview of the region and its products. Stop at Covita outlet with chance to taste and buy Manuka honey, and to buy delicious Manuka honey ice cream as an appetizer for the later in the day in depth experience at a kiwi fruit orchard, with the free tasting of kiwi fruit ice cream. A two icecream day! What could be better?

Delightful tour. Russell picked us up right at the port - couldn't be easier... He showed us around Tauranga and gave us some history of the area. We then headed to a honey facility and tasted several varieties of delicious manuka honey. The kiwi orchard was next. The vines were loaded with fruit and Russell explained the different varieties of kiwi, how the vines are cared for, and the process for growing and harvesting. All very interesting. We then sampled several kiwi products including delicious kiwi ice cream. Last up was the avocado orchard and again, a very interesting stop. Russell was friendly and engaging and the tour was quite enjoyable. Recommend.

Hi Mary, Thank you so much for your review. I love to talk about our history and answer questions regarding it. Just to clarify though that if I don't know the answer I'll say I don't know and wont try and spin a yarn. All the best. Regards, Russell

This tour was everything it was advertised to be and offered great value. Russell did a very nice job of teaching us something about the history and agriculture of the Tauranga area. We were looking for an interesting and cheaper alternative to the geothermal (we've been to Yellowstone in the USA) and Hobbiton (we're not really into the Lord of the Rings thing) options that seem to draw the largest crowds--and this tour certainly met our expectations.

Hi Guys, Thank you for your wonderful review. I'm pleased the tour was everything you expected and I do definitely try to make it as interesting as possible. Thanks again and all the best. Regards, Russell

Hi Stuart, Thank you for your review. I'm glad you had a great tour and I appreciate your feedback regarding pickups and drop offs. It is always a busy day at the port gates when the Ovation of the Seas is in port and I'm glad you found the process easy. All the best. Regards, Russell

Hi Michael, Thank you for your review. It was a fun group to have out and I enjoy having people ask lots of questions. I try and include as much variety in our local history and information about the region as I can but I also try and taylor the commentary of my tour to peoples interests as well. And it was a beautiful day too! All the best for the rest of your trip and safe travels. Russell
