What our guests always tell us they love most of all about our trips is getting to know the people we meet in different parts of the country. On our travels over the North Island we visit gardens, homes and make more than a few boat trips. Here's a quick intro to some of our best mates from the North, people you'll meet when you're travelling with us...

When you support MoaTours you're also supporting hard working Kiwis like these. Thank you!

Matt from Pure Cruise on Lake Rotoiti

We've gotten to know Matt and his team really well over the years on our trips through Rotorua. The only way to get up to the private hot pools at the top of Lake Rotoiti is by boat, and on board the luxury yacht the Tuia you're travelling in style.

Christmas in the Bay 5 day tour

Tracy from Lake Tarawera

Along with her Mum & Dad, Tracy is a guide on Lake Tarawera, following in the footsteps of their famous ancestor, Guide Sofia. Catching up with Karen & Tracy and sharing whakawhanaungatanga over lunch is always one of the special moments of our time with them.

East Cape Caper 6 day tour

June & Colin from Cairnhill Garden in Taranaki

MoaTours guests have been stopping in to say hello and visit June & Colin's wonderful garden for years now and it's always a highlight of any Taranaki trip. They're right at the start of the Forgotten World Highway and have wonderful views of Mt Taranaki from their garden, but it's the friendly welcome and home baked treats we love most of all!

Amanda & Gavin from Kiwifruit Country in the Bay of Plenty

Most Kiwis are really familiar with kiwifruit but how much do you know about how they're grown? What our friends Amanda & Gavin don't know about kiwifruit isn't worth knowing! Our guests that travel through the Bay of Plenty love the trip around the orchard and of course tasting the fresh fruit.
