“Great wine tour with an awesome guide”

Allan was an awesome tour guide – very knowledgeable and informative. We took a wine tour (with lunch) from Paihia – the wineries were well considered, we had plenty of time at each location to enjoy the offerings and Allan was with us throughout to assist as needed. A great experience, a great tour and a great guide. Highly recommended.

“Amazing, must do!”

Absolutely wonderful time with my family today. Alan was amazing and was helpful and accommodating!! Would definitely recommend. Also dealing with Annette on the phone was great so I think whoever you get would be an awesome time!

“Absolutely Fantastic”

We did the 1 hour scenic tour which was fantastic. Saw the waterfall which was amazing.
Flexibility with booking times made for a memorable day. Thx so much

“Amazing Experience!”

My friend & I had an amazing wine tasting experience with Annette! She is so knowledgeable & has answers to any of your tipsy questions.We tried a wide range of different wines, some I have never tasted before as they are only made in the beautiful Northland region. Thanks to our guide Annette, who turned a kind of miserable rainy day into an amazing experience!!!!

“One of our most special tours”

Just wanted to let you know how wonderful our tour of Bay of Islands was with Vida.
  She was wonderful, charming, knowledgeable and friendly. We appreciated all her factual knowledge about the islands. The winery lunch was fantastic and will be remembered as one of our most special tours while on the cruise.

“What a fabulous day with Total Tours”

Great, thanks!  What a fabulous day with Total Tours. We were picked up at our Motel by Annette our host for the day what a lovely bubbly person. We headed to the Mahoe Cheese factory for a tasting of their famous cheeses ended up purchasing some tasty cheeses yum

“Great Half Day Tour”

We loved the variety offered in this tour. Vineyards, arts & crafts, historical Stone Cottage and chocolate/gelato. I liked that Annette added in a couple of extra stops and was very laid back about how long we spent at each one. We were very happy with our tour.
