Meet The Makers Tours

Experience the Magic of Meet The Makers Tours

Kia ora, I’m Amanda and I host bespoke tours in Raglan and Hamilton for people or groups from one to 30 people.

All tours are fully hosted, and guests are guaranteed a personal authentic experience, lots of stories, and heaps of fun. I am popularly known as ‘The Hostess with the Mostest” and I look forward to meeting you and sharing the places, the people and the stories.

Raglan Tours

Meet the local faces behind all things creative in Raglan

Whāingaroa Raglan is a west coast beach town with a laid-back artsy surfy vibe. It is is widely recognised as the eco-friendly heart of New Zealand, and a leading example of responsible and sustainable tourism.

It's home to a lot of talented people, all with interesting stories to tell. Explore with a local - whether you're a foodie, looking for your next piece of art, or something interesting to wear. Raglan tours are themed Taste Art, and Threads and more, but we can combine according to your interests, and spend some time seeing the spectacular Raglan scenery.

I specialise in designing itineraries to fit your time frame and interests. Departures are available from Auckland, Rotorua, the Bay of Plenty, and Waikato wide.

You can add a night in Raglan, activities, a meeting room, an experienced meeting planner.

Hamilton Tours

Hamilton tours include Taste Asian Flavours Walking tour Hamilton CBD, Shop the Ops walking tour Frankton, and Explore Hamilton with a Local Tour.

I would love to show you some of Hamilton’s secrets and why Hamiltonians love Hamilton. Don’t believe what you read, there are lots of really cool things to see, experience and taste.

Shop the Ops and Explore Hamilton Tours are available for from one person to ten people, and will be customised to meet your timeframe. Meet me at the start point or we can pick you up from where you are staying.

Taste Asian Flavours Walking Tour is available from a minimum of four people.
