Long day but relaxing, driver was great lots of info, funny and a great guy all round. I wanted mainly to see the caves and Rotorua and would have been happy to miss the farm for extra time at these locations. Back in Auckland by 8pm in time for an evening meal and walk.

This was an incredible experience. However, contrary to the description on Viator.com, we did not get a chance to milk a cow. Te Puia was fascinating, with its mud pits and geysers and Maori ceremony. And the stop at the Hobbiton sign in Matamata was a treat. The drive was very scenic, and the driver/tour guide was very informative. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants a sample of what New Zealand has to offer. My only suggestion: I noticed that some of the people who boarded our bus in Auckland got off at the Waitomo Caves and did not continue with us. The driver said that they were going to stay overnight, so they could do the Black Water tubing, which is something I would really have loved to do. It would be nice if that kind of package were available - bus from Auckland to Waitomo, overnight there, and then pick up the next day's bus for the rest of the tour.

Great trip if you have a short time in Auckland. It is a long day, but the sights were great, and the tour guide was friendly and knew lots of information about NZ.

Glow worms in the Waitomo Caves are a sight to see, and travel through the countryside was very scenic.

A very full day, and very enjoyable. Great value for money.
Long day and lots of travelling to combine all aspects of this trip, but it was well worth it. The glow worm caves were astounding, and the thermal springs in Rotorua amazing. This one-day tour will probably whet the appetite to return for more. The coach and driver were first class, and the driver's rhetoric was memorable.

This was the best tour that I booked on Viator! The day is fun filled and packed with so many exciting things to see!

Waitomo Caves were really nice and the glow worms were fantastic. I was disappointed we didn't get a chance to exit through the bottom of the caves since it rained a lot. The Agrodome sheep farm was a lot of fun since we got ot fed the sheeps, alpaca lamas, deers, and ostriches. The tour itself was great. Then we headed to the Maori museum and checked out the geysers and mud baths. Overall, it was a great tour.

Great way to see Waitomo Caves and Rotorua if you only have limited time in Auckland. We had a great time! Big thank you to our driver and guide, he was very knowledgeable and very professional.

The trip covers the main attraction of Waitomo Caves and the Rotorua geyser. We were most impressed with the service from the supplier and the knowledge and commentaries of our driver cum guide Steve throughout the journey. Highly recommended for first time visitors with lesser time to move around the country on your own.

The trip was great! Even though the weather was not so good that day, we had a wonderful time! The guides were all excellent, not only on the bus, but at all of the stops. A must do day trip!

A long day but worth it an excellent trip and the driver/guide was good. Unfortunately, it was a very cold day and we went out on a coach with a mechanical problem, it fell out of gear so it had to stop regularly and no heat meant we had misted up windows, on a scenic coach, but we were provided with blankets. We were a little late on arrival at destinations because of the mechanical problem so felt a bit rushed. The driver did apologize regularly, but he could do nothing about it!

I cannot recommend this trip highly enough! The driver and tour guide were fantastic and shared with us their knowledge of the little towns we drove through on our journey. The lunch provided was wonderful and our guide kept us stocked up on tea and coffee throughout the journey. So much was packed into the day and the caves, Agrodome and Rotorua were fantastic places to visit! It was fantastic value and would recommend this trip to everyone!
Excellent all the way! Friendly, efficient, and great sights! The large audience for the Maori dance took away some of the atmosphere, but you kind of expect that.
Chinh P USA
It is a whole day trip. The service is really good! The Waitomo cave with glowing worms and the geyser, and the boiling mud in Rotorua are amazing! We enjoyed this tour!

For a lone traveller was a safe, easy way to see many things the north island has to offer. Very enjoyable, informative, packed day trip.

Very interesting. Well run. A once in a lifetime experience!
IVETTE C USA
This is truly a trip to take if you have limited time but want to see different aspects of New Zealand. A must do. I went with my two children, ages 11 and 9, and they had a blast! The driver and commentator were very helpful and friendly. I cannot say enough positive things about this trip. My only regret is not enough time at the Maori gift shop.
Edward G USA
The entire day was most enjoyable. The guides were very informative and friendly, and we saw so much in just one day. Everything about this trip was superb. The glow worms rank as one of the top natural wonders I have ever seen, and I have been to many places. We had a great time.
Paul R Australia
Awesome, even the rain and hailstorm couldn't dampen spirits! Thoroughly recommended!
Hendrika C Australia
I very much enjoyed the trip, a little bit more time allocated to gift shopping would have been appreciated, also I found the hostess made comments about passengers which were not very nice, apart from that, she was very good at her job and very pleasant to talk to. The driver was very informative and I enjoy his commentary and answers to questions his driving was very good too.
Sandeep C Australia
The tour was really good. The only problem I faced was that the pick up was not made from the hotel, and I was asked to come to the given address. When I reached that shop, I found it was closed and there was a note that this shop is shifted to somewhere else.
Matthew R United Kingdom
A fantastic day out. The only downside was too much time at the Agrodrome, leaving too little time at Rotorua.
A wonderful tour with excellent tour guide and hostess. You couldn?t improve this tour as it made our short visit to N.Z. memorable. Thank you so much.
