Although I booked this transfer over 2 months in advance and "Get your guide" kept sending me messages and emails, the bus company did not know this offer. So I wasn't on the list for the bus. But there were only 6 people booked (on the excursion to the Bay of Islands with Russell and Whaitangi) and I was therefore taken with me quite unbureaucratically. If the trip had been booked, I would have been unlucky!
