Doing what: Waitomo Caves and Rotorua Day Trip from Auckland
It was a great trip with one major flaw. The lunch pack picked up at the Waitomo Caves was quite OK with nice sandwiches. The pack picked up at Rotorua was a shocker with a roll that was wet and inedible. That was for the 3 hour trip back to Auckland. Apart from that the day was great.
It was a great trip, our driver, Kenny was very knowledgeable. Can't wait to go back and do the Bay of Islands with them
Great tour - but very long day. The Waitomo Caves and glowworms were spectacular. Wish we could have had more time at the Geysers in Rotorua - to wander around the park on our own. Could have had less time at the Agrodome because we had already been to a sheep farm. The sandwich lunch was good and we appreciated the sandwich and water we got at the end of the day for the return trip.

Doing what: Bay of Islands Day Tour from Auckland
the weather the tours and the islands were amazing well worth doing the trip
excellent day; great driver; trip was well put together good desitnations and timing
Nice trip. Unfortunately I would have liked to have spent more time in Rotorua as on this tour you don't have enough time, only an hour when they recommend you spend 3 hours at the park. However being it was only a day trip and everything else that was included i understand. Less time with the sheep and more time at Rotorua would have been my choice. The glow worm cave is wonderful, though you can't take pictures inside the cave =( ... But the glow worms are beautiful... Rotorua is interesting, and you get to learn about the Maori as well. Definitely worth this trip!
Had a wonderful day. From the very friendly gentleman who picked us up on time to Graham the also helpful and informative driver, all worked well to give us a very memorable day. And I must not forget the chap who did the tour at Russell. He also was great. Thank you very much.

Doing what: Small-Group Coromandel Peninsula Day Trip from Auckland
It was a perfect day and our tour guide was INCREDIBLE!
It was a nice trip and more or less as expected (average age of the group was about 60).
The driver was very nice and entertaining.
The split of the group and timetable in Pahia/Russell was more than confusing. I can recommend it and would do it again.
Dave, the driver, coordinator, information specialist was excellent. The sites more than met our expectations. The tour of Treaty House and grounds was excellent as well. It was informative and answered several questions from previous days in Museums in Wellington and Auckland. The bus was reasonabley comfortable (It is hard to sit for a long time) and the breaks along the way were most appreciated.
This day trip worked well from the pickup to the drop off. Both transfers worked as advertised without any problems. the driver was great and interesting to listen to. While the drive up and back is long, the coach was comfortable, and there was a break in both directions. the inclusion of the treaty house and ferry tickets to russell made it a great day. Be aware that you may need to wait till around 3pm to have lunch, or at least buy something at the morning tea stop to fill the gap. I think this tour was good value for money.

Doing what: Black Water Rafting Waitomo Caves Tour
The programme is very well planed with full of fun. Our guides Shanne and Anne are extremely caring and funny! Strongly recommand the 5 hrs programme than the 3 hrs one!
Our guide chattered all the way there with shuch knowledge that it made the trip go so quckly. The caves were amazing and Rotorua turned on the fine weather. Overall an excellent day
very nice tour. The driver provided informations all the way. very helpful. the glow worm cave is amazing. too short, should stay longer. The maori , farm are also fun. very good trip. also a long day. 5 star
I wish they allow us to take photos in the caves but I do understand the reason. No complains. It is a fantastic trip, especially those glow worms. What a view. And the Geyser, Oh, my, you had to go and see for yourself.
