“The BEST!”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

I arranged a day tour with Yvonne (Mildred!) of Scott Tours before I left Australia. My 90 y.o. Mum and I were cruising on the Dawn Princess in Feb 2014. We were met at the dock and were taken to various attractions along the way to Rotorua, once there we were taken to Whakarewarewa, a living Maori village which was fantastic. As there only 4 guests, nothing was too much trouble and we all became good friends. The vehicle was clean and very comfortable. Yvonne was so caring and her commentary was second to none.By far the best bus tour we did in N.Z. Keep up the good work!

“Highly recommend”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

We were extremely pleased with the tour of Rotorua, New Zealand . The ship docked at Tauranga where we were met by the pre-arranged tour company, SCOTT TOURS. We were nervous booking on line but it was half the price of the same tour offered on the ship. We had a very friendly, knowledgable guide, named Geoff. He drove us in their A/C van with a few others, many less than the ships bus tour. We were guaranteed that the return to the ship would be punctual, which it was, leaving nothing out.
SCOTT TOURS knows their business. John and Jo. Oshawa, Ontario CANADA

“Great Time”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

.We got off the Sea princess at Tauranga and booked a tour through the Info Centre and spent a great day with Len and Bernie( now friends) who were already waiting for us to be chauffered by Yvonne from Scott Tours. She is a wonderful and caring person and guide. We went by private vehicle to Rotorua and surrounds. My husband could not walk fast so Yvonne elected to walk with him and sent us ahead do that we would not miss any of the show at the village of Whakarewarewa. She has a good sense of humour as well. We had a terrific time and we have two new friends from New South Wales.She is a credit to the tourism industry. I have two mature female friends cruising to NZ in October and have advised them to take this tour. It is well priced but to know they will be in safe hands with this company. G.

“Excellent day tour of Tauranga”
Reviewed 20 April 2013

Booked a day tour with Scott Tours at the Port of Tauranga where our cruise ship docked. We had Geoff Allen as our driver and tour guide in an air-conditioned van. There were 8 of us in the van and we all had a great time. First, we had a tour of the city centre. It wasn't really that big of a city. Tauranga is more of a surf city and a retirement area at the same time. We went to Kiwi 360 where we saw kiwi trees that actually didn't grow that high so we had to bend our knees to move around. Then we went to a place with lots of redwood trees, to a thermal village including a cultural show, to a forest reserve, to a place with boiling mud, and others. We just enjoyed this day tour with Geoff and it was well worth the money we spent for it.
