This was a fabulous tour. Our guide was Huru, he was fantastic, such knowledge about Rotorua. We went through the crater, quite a hike! --- also visited the mud pools and finally the Lady Knox geyser. Really recommend this tour.

Amazing! Which I'd taken the time to do it years ago when I was in better physical shape to cope with the walking. Though very sore that night tho, I managed all the walking and enjoyed every minute. The guide was, to put it simply, just the best and we, and our friends from the UK are very grateful for his knowledge and friendliness.
