KATE'S MOBILE022 045 0525
ND Kiwi Tours is more than just a tour operator. We offer a range of other services for the Katikati, Waihi, Waihi Beach and wider Western Bay of Plenty community.
Based in the Bay of Plenty township of Katikati, our welcoming team prides itself on excellent service and an intimate knowledge of everything our special little corner of New Zealand has to offer. Owners Kent and Kate Pfennig moved back to New Zealand from the USA in 2011 after years of farming and more than two decades travelling the world with each other and then their three boys.
They purchased the Katikati Motel, which they ran for four and a half years, and launched ND Kiwi Tours to share their passion for travel and New Zealand with others.
Kent’s roots in North Dakota gave rise to the ‘ND’ in the ‘ND Kiwi Tours’ name. He grew up working on a sheep and beef farm near the state capital Bismarck and proudly calls himself a North Dakota Kiwi.
I had occasion to have Kate Pfennig from ND Kiwi Tours and Kate’s Kabs drive me to Auckland a few months ago and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Kate is a very courteous, caring and a very careful, considerate driver. I would happily recommend Kate for any trips around our local area and trips further afield.
Just a short note to thank for your time whilst QM2 was docked at Tarangua earlier this week. Our trip to Rorotua was super and we thoroughly enjoyed our day. As I mentioned to you before, Keith particularly enjoyed our outing as you were able to go at his pace; so many tours do not.
We were grateful for your suggestion of the alternative route back -which enabled us to see a little more of the countryside in our short visit.
Your driving and narrative were super; again, a most enjoyable day. Thank you.
