  1. Kathleen,

    If 4 people wanted to go on a bus together, can you book a bus all in one go for those 4 people ?

    • Festival Team,

      Hi Kathleen,

      It is fine for all 4 people to book individually for the bus. Simply meet up at the Festival Hub (Tauranga Racecourse) beforehand and make sure you all hop on together. Best wishes for a relaxing festival experience.

  2. J Benton,

    How do we book a private shuttle service for 2 days for 4 people ?

  3. Vanessa,

    Hi, approx. how many gardens will be visited during the day?
    Is it hop on hop off with regular shuttles going past the selected gardens or do you stay with the same shuttle all day?
    If so how much time is allocated to each garden?
    Thanks for answering my questions,
    Vanessa

    • Kirsty,
