About Us

We guarantee reliability and satisfaction

Hi, my name is Patrick and I am the owner of Tauranga Scenic Tours and your chauffeur guide. We are based in the city of Tauranga and we specialize in friendly, fun, small group tours for cruise ship passengers, locals, and other adventurers. We will show you the best tours of this beautiful region ... the Bay of Plenty and the Coromandel. We guarantee reliability and satisfaction.

We are proud to show you our many top class attractions we can explore within an hour’s drive from the Port, including Rotorua, New Zealand’s major geothermal area, Maori cultural heart, beautiful Government gardens and Lake Front. We ensure there are plenty of stops for some awesome scenic photos for memories of your holiday in New Zealand.

We look after you from the time we leave Port until we return in time to board your ship. We get to know each other and we can stretch our tour out if time allows. Our small group tours (Luxury 8 seat Mini Coach) have distinct advantages over the cruise ship tours who hire 50 seat coaches. We are more personalized, and we go where the big coaches don’t go or don’t bother to go.

Book your tour with us with confidence. Our Vehicles are safe, air conditioned, comfortable and have passed stringent Certificate of Fitness inspection by NZ transport Authority as safe passenger service vehicles. In addition our drivers must hold a NZ Passenger Service Licence and a first aid certificate to ensure your safety.

I have lived in this area all my life, have seen the Tauranga Port grow from small beginnings to become the biggest port in New Zealand and Tauranga become the second fastest growing city in New Zealand. We know the region very well and will explain and show you the many aspects of our wonderful life style in the Bay of Plenty region including our amazing 2 billion dollar kiwi fruit industry.

My partner Erin is busy behind the scenes, looking after bookings, arranging tours, making sure everything is running smoothly. We invite you to join us on one of our fully guided scenic tours for an awesome day of photo opportunities, fun and adventure and a wonderful memory of your New Zealand visit.

Very best wishes
