Charter coach hire – Bay of Islands

We have two coaches and a mini van for your transport requirements. For weddings (or any event) we offer transport to and from your venue and can accommodate 18 per coach and 9 for the mini van.
After reading the reviews I thought one hour couldn’t hurt. We were pleasantly surprised. I’d previously had four holidays in BOI, but I didn’t know most of the things we learnt during an hour with Kelly. I highly recommend this as an overview of Russell that leaves time for you to return and immerse yourself in your personal hilights. Good value considering the time and trouble that private research and exploration would have taken!
