I have been on a couple of these bus tours and they are great - do go if you can. My pick would be the second one on 11 November - the judges talk for the Portage awards is a real highlight. (having said that, I would be happy to go on any of them, unfortunately this year I can't get to Auckland.)
Each tour includes lunch and afternoon tea, and a free Suzy Dünser mug. You will have a day of interesting company and wonderful ceramics. Cost $70 per person ($50 each for two bookings or more).

Highly recommended as I went on one last year and had the most awesome time.
Unfortunately I'm otherwise engaged this year with Reunions, Markets and work, but hope to join them in the future Smile
