As a mature female traveler passing through paihia (with no car) i was advised about the Glow worms tour which was a lot more comprehensive that it appeared. $49 well spent in my opinion! i met David my driver and tour guide outside Isite in Paihia. He looked like a local and his local knowledge did not disappoint, absolutely delightful. He was a gentleman from the outset. such a detailed tour (personal touch i believe) as David drove around paihia sharing its history and then we went into Opua harbor where he advised even more historical information!!! Then we drove to the glow worms. He made sure my tour guide was there and came back to pick me up after. Glow worms a must do - brilliant. David then took me to see kawakawa and the famous toilets and railway!!! brilliant, we had a walk around at my request...lovley. After this we drove a nice country route chatting about the area and more facts where shared and ended up at haruru falls as a bonus to the tour. haruru falls is a definite...so beautiful. I have learnt so much about the area more so than other tours i have done. David was happy to help and share knowledge and a lovley guy!!A true local!! i will be telling others about it!!!
