$16 NZ is well worth this detailed tour of the origins of the trees and fauna within the gardens.....FAYE our guide and driver was so informative, and a funny lady to boot....suits all ages as very slow bus and easy to access.

We were greeted by this enthusiastic guide Faye, who took us thorugh the key parts of the gardens with a dialogue that could not be faulted. We were certainly made clearly aware of the areas that we should visit on foot afterwards.

Our tour guide was very informative giving us plenty of information on plants and history of garden plants. The tulips were in full bloom adding plenty of colour. The caterpillar a great way for less agile people to see gardens.

Loved this trolley cart tour of the botanical gardens - you could walk it and read all the tags without doing this tour, but this was so much better. The tour guide knew his stuff and brought a friendly affable approach to the table. The...More
