Booked this trip came in from a cruise ship for the day. They met us at the cruise port and showed us some amazing stops to show the scenery from Mt Victoria lookout, drove along all the coast line had lunch at this amazing chocolate fish cafe along the beach side visited Weta Cave Shop. Our tour guide Aaron was a very informative friendly guide. Would definitely recommend this trip for cruise ship passengers.
