Small Group Day Tours from Tauranga

We are a Tauranga Tour Company providing small group tours in the Bay of Plenty region of New Zealand. We do not put you on large buses as we like to provide a personalised experience for our tours.  We specialise in Rotorua day tours, but also have other options available in the Bay of Plenty region. For a fun, relaxing day full of interesting places, travel with Scott Tours.

Knowledgeable and friendly guide

George and Yvonne Scott, who established Scott Tours in 1996, have now stepped down to enjoy a slower pace of life. Geoff Allen, who has been a guide alongside George and Yvonne for 8 years, has continued with their outstanding tour service of enjoyable, down-to-earth, personalised tours from Tauranga to Rotorua. This also includes other New Zealand locations for overseas and New Zealand travellers.

Geoff and Trixie now own the business and will continue with the trusted name of Scott Tours, providing visitors with a sincere insight into what New Zealand is about.

Having travelled widely in New Zealand and overseas, Geoff and Trixie are immensely proud to be able to show visitors this beautiful country we live in. Trixie has the role of Administration and will take care of your requests and enquiries, guiding you through to the completed booking. With extensive knowledge of the region and his care and attention to detail in every aspect of the tours, Geoff will deliver you a most memorable journey with Scott Tours.

Flexible and customised tours

We can also customise a tour to your interests, all in the Bay of Plenty region, using the charter option. Please enquire if you have an individual group requiring a day tour to cover specific interests.

And if you’d like to stay overnight, we’ll adjust the tour programme and can plan according. This also allows you to discover some of the off-the-beaten-track attractions!

Tour information

All tours start from Tauranga and go to either Rotorua or other Bay of Plenty locations.  Pick-ups can be arranged from cruise ships at the Port of Tauranga, Tauranga airport or your Tauranga or Mount Maunganui accommodation.
