I am Pete Norman. Some of you may know of me from my last business; Normans Buses, this was a family owned business for 4 generations, originating in Hikurangi.- a long history in buses and people.
I was born and raised in Whangarei in Northland.
I was born into buses and raised in the Normans Motors shed in Hikurangi. You might say I was born with a steering wheel and a wrench in my hands. Once leaving school I started work with my dad and learnt the panel-beating trade. Panel-beating was his main trade until we bought the business from his parents so they could retire.
We chose to sell the bus company along with school runs so I could pursue my earlier passion of car restoration. But alas the draw to customer service and buses has once again pulled me in and the opportunity to continue the fantastic journey of buses and tourism that Jan and Gary had built was too much to resist.
So here I am. Committed to providing you all with the best tour experience.
I look forward to eventually meeting you all and providing you with the same excellent service you have always enjoyed.
