“Helpful staff”

Bay of Islands i-SITE Visitor Information Centre

Helpful knowledgeable staff. Helped us choose a fishing charter which worked out great!
They had information and brochures on many different tours and activities.
The most common asked question they received was “where are the toilets?” despite the sandwich board outside the door detailing the location of 4 different sets.....

The best place to go whether for a Boutique Bed & Breakfast or amazing sightseeing trips in the area.

We were doing a driving holiday for 3 weeks and free-wheeling when and where to stay which worked okay until we got to Paihia. We didn't realise how popular this destination is and how difficult in would be getting somewhere to stay for 3 nights.
Enter the friendly and helpful staff from I-site and one lady in particular helped us for about half an hour to find a suitable place for us to rest our heads. Thankyou very much, we all appreciated your time and patience.

One thing I found refreshingly unusual about NZ was all of the literature and really decent maps that one could get at the i-SITE offices. They did also provide information on local attractions. Since one could book certain tours and events here I was left wondering about their level of impartiality since I'm guessing they get a commission for activities booked at their offices.

Thanks for reading. If you've found this helpful I will appreciate a thumbs up below.
