Rotorua, New Zealand
From the moment the bus picked us up at our hotel, we had a great time. Haru our driver , who is of Maori descent himself, shared his knowledge of the geology, the culture, and the area. We learned so much and particularly as a small group were able to ask questions freely along our exploring walk. Highly recommended.
Wonderful way to get out into the countryside. We visited four wineries and particularly enjoyed the talk at Balgownie with the delicious lunch and views. The opportunity to taste wines before lunch allowed us a better pairing of wine to accompany our lunch and a lovely Savignon Blanc to take with us.Finishing at Chantel Domaine and a sparkling wine was perfect! We purchased a couple bottles, but wished we could have brought back more through customs. Beautiful day and Finn our driver was knowledgeable and fun.
Awesome! No way to describe in words the beauty. Almost a spiritual experience. We made ample stops to take photos and enjoy the views. The stop to see the koalas sleeping in the trees exceeded our expectations, as we expected them in an enclosed area. Got great shots of them and the kookaburra. A long day of riding but well worth the experience!! We were really glad we were not driving the twisty road ourselves as we could not have enjoyed the views.
