We wanted to explore the "scenic roads less travelled" in the Bay of Islands region. Mark and Tui proposed some very nice small roads, very scenic ! ... We had a wonderful day. Thank you and we highly recommend Rogue Pony experiences.

Thanks Michel, so pleased that you had a great time on those back roads. That route is one of our favourites as it is so varied and contrasting in its geology and well as the ecology of the farmland, wetlands and forestry. Cheers, Mark

We had a wonderful day out today with our host Tui . Tui was waiting for us at Wanganui pier as we disembarked our Crystal cruise ship tender. There were 4 of us in her Blue Jeep as we traversed all the back roads and valleys of this magnificent coastal area. She was very well

Tui agrees the hot chips were awesome and she had such a great time with you guys that the day seemed to go too quickly. Thanks for the feedback about space. Four passengers is a "friendly" fit with three in the back seat and we try to make everyone aware of this before they book. Part of the rogue Jeep Wrangler experience is sharing with your travel companions while getting off the main highways. We hope you found a lovely tour to do in your next stop in Tauranga and hope the possum goes down a treat. Cheers Tui and Mark.

Great to hear your feedback Cynthia! Everyone who opts for the Glow Worm Caves always finds it fascinating. I hope you let the others rest before hitting the Ballroom that evening. Cheers Mark.

We were met by Tui when our tender arrived at the dock and taken to a new, clean and very comfortable jeep. We then proceeded to have a very enjoyable half day, touring the area, visiting the magnificent flora and trees, seeing the countryside and getting a sense of the
