Great day with Slav
, Jan 2020
Great day with Slav. He was waiting at the tender on arrival. Easy day seeing the highlights of the area. Glow worm cave was cool and one of the best meals of the whole trip at the beautiful grounds of Marsden winery. Great deal when compared to cruise line options, paying more for a lot less.

We had a fabulous time with Slava. He was a wonderful guide. He added the Glow worm cave to our itenary and it was a real highlight for us. Also the visit to kawakawa and the wine tour. He managed to fit so much into our day while not making us feel rushed. I highly recommend this tour! You’ll be glad you took it!

Slava was really nice. He asked what we really wanted to see and then went from there. We really wanted to see the glow worm caves, so that's where we went first. Nice because we beat the buses. We went to a winery and a chocolate store. We saw two awesome water falls and much more.

Thanks to excellent commentary and thorough background info on the sites we visited, Slava provided us with an optimal learning journey. He noted our interest in the local flora, making sure that he pointed out special plants and especially the Silver Fern, the noted icon of NZ. Appreciated was also the fee he personally paid for us to have a sampling of wines at a local vineyard. Another success for Viator. Thank you, Slava.
