Cruise New Zealand Port 3
My DH jokingly said to the driver upon hopping on the bus do we get a map, then said no need you know where we are going. hahaha!
Off we all went 30 people in the bus got a running commentary from the driver as we traveled along country roads, putting his interpretation of history. That's right he was changing the history books as we went. We arrived at out first stop Cape Kidnappers all hoped off for a toilet stop half hour into our trip. Upon getting back on the bus he counted every one and said, lets get going. My hubby called out that two people were not on yet. Just as well he had taken note that the people opposite had not yet returned. With everyone now back on we continued our tour.
We drove into Hastings for city tour for yet another toilet stop. We went to the strawberry farm. ( No Strawberries to taste). Drove straight past Arataki Honey. (No Honey tasting). Silky Oaks Chocolate Factory. ( No Tasting). Drove straight passed Mission Estate (Photo Stop).
We arrived back an hour plus late had no time to look around town and get back to the ship before departing. Tour took over 4 hours.
We were not happy so we went to cancel the next days tour which we had per paid for the following day in Wellington. After lengthy discussions we received a full refund for both tours. Our bus driver had taken us on the wrong tour.
