Experience the Bay of Plenty
If you are visiting Tauranga, let Driving Miss Daisy take you on a unforgettable day trip to the geysers and cultural sights of Rotorua or the magic of Hobbiton.
Both are around an hour's drive from Tauranga, so we recommend allowing between 4 and 7 hours for your day tour, but the itinerary on the day is totally up to you. Please ask if there is somewhere you particularly want to visit or you can leave it up to us if you are not sure where you want to go. Equally, if you have somewhere in mind, but aren't sure about accessibility, we can check that for you in advance.
We can take wheelchairs and mobility scooters of varying sizes, or, if you are ambulant but worried about the amount of walking around the sights, we can provide a wheelchair for you to use.
With four wheelchair accessible cars in our fleet, we are sure to have a vehicle suitable for your particular needs. For example, the Estima has a swing out front seat which you may find more comfortable if you are able to transfer; the Kangoo has good headroom and great visibility with the wheelchair positioned just behind the driver and a passenger seat alongside, so is much friendlier than a typical wheelchair accessible vehicle; the Hiace can take a wheelchair and a mobility scooter plus 5 passengers, so is ideal for larger groups.
Our friendly drivers are very experienced in working with people in wheelchairs and are happy to accompany you on your tour to provide whatever assistance if needed, or simply take you to the places you want to see and wait, whichever you prefer.
