Our ‘Glorious Bay of Plenty’, and ‘Tauranga Highlights & Kiwifruit’ shore excursions feature the addition of our own Coach Executive who will accompany the guests throughout the duration of the excursion.

Our Coach Executives are ordinary New Zealanders, chosen for their friendly, helpful and positive attitude, their communication skills, and their passion for ensuring visitors have a most enjoyable time whilst in their care.
The Coach Executives are mature, well-educated, professional men and women, who are retained exclusively for our two excursions only.

As well as providing a very clear, articulate and entertaining commentary, the Coach Executives will attend to the comfort and well-being of all the guests, provide answers to queries throughout, and assist the movement and hosting requirements at the venues visited during the excursions.
