Dear Willem
A belated thank you for the wonderful tour you gave us around Rotorua &  especially to the kiwi farm in November we had a fantastic day. As we were the only ones from Celebrity Solstice it was a very private tour.
We hope you have a wonderful year in 2017.
Thanks again

We traveled as part of a small group with Willem (owner/operator) of Stroos New Zealand Tours, to the André Rieu concert in Auckland. With Willem as our driver, we were able to sit back and relax; no hassles with parking, door-to-door service and the van extremely comfortable, it was definitely the best way to travel. Sandra Hallet (Roberts)  – November 2016 - Papamoa NZ
