Liked: the bus trip and tour of the most northern tip of the North Island up to the lighthouse with the BEST bus driver and tour guide: Chris. The Tasman Sea meets the Pacific Ocean at the tip of this part of the North Island: BEAUTIFUL.

Quite well done and well worth the extra NZ$ 10 for the program. Was a traditional Maori welcome ceremony at the Treaty House.

This was very well done and enjoyable. The Singers and Dancers, the Poi's and the people. They were so good and friendly and they let us take photos with them. One Gentleman even swapped my husband's stick for his Spear. How neat is that!!
