Really excellent. Our guide had a broad knowledge, not only of the geology of the area and the history of volcanic activity, but also of how Maori people would have used the natural resources (and of 'Lord of the Rings' filming location!) Richly illuminating experience.
Our first time in N.Z. This was an excellent tour, only half a day , hubby and I could easily have spent the whole day as it was so fantastic The tour guide was exceptional and certainly had a lot of knowledge of the area.

Huru was an amazing guide for this morning tour. I would have gladly spent a full day. The displays of thermal activity were amazing, and his ability to describe and explain made the experience better than I anticipated.
Our halfday trip was excellent and we would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a company to beek with. Our guide was Huru and he was extremely informative and obviously very knowlegeable about the areas we were taken too. Any question asked he was able to answer. A very nice person to have as your guide. The trip itself was amazing, as was NZ as a country.
Fantastic experience. Visited Wai-o-Tapu Thermal wonderland with Lady Knox geyser erupting and Waimangu Valley. Both are geothermal hot spots around Rotorua. The local guide Huru was fantastic and shared his invaluable knowledge with us all. Thoroughly recommend it!!!
Just the best guide in town I'm sure, Huru you're the best. What a great story teller. My wife is Aussie she learn t so much and I being Kiwi was reminded of lots I had forgotten. The tour finished with Huru singing a Maori love song as he returned us to our hotel. Absolutely wonderful, a must do tour.
I booked this tour after seeing that it was highly rated by others. Our tour guide (Huru) was very professional, and also very friendly, and he had an excellent knowledge of the history of the Rotorua area , which made the tour very interesting...he even sang a song for us on the way back to our drop-off point. Fantastic tour, very enjoyable, I'd recommend this to anyone!
This was the best way to get the most out of Rotorua's famous attractions, especially if you only have limited time there. The small group of 10 in a mini bus was perfect and the guide (Huru) was so friendly and funny - a joy to spend time with. We felt that we got a lot done on this morning tour and it was excellent value for money.
This was our best tour in New Zealand by far. Our guide was great fun and very knowledgeable on the Thermal Activity. It was a small group tour which afforded us all time to get to see all the amazing sights around Rotorua. The Champagne Pool is a must see, its amazing!! If you had just one tour in Rototrua make sure it's this one!
Excellent tour with informative and knowledgeable guide. This tour was fun and not too long recommend highly.
This was a great tour, a good way to see the sights of Rotorua. It is a small group which makes it easier to get around and see more. The tour guide was one of the best I've had ever. Very passionate and informative about the moari cultures. Highly Reccomend, a lot of walking though.
Brilliant guide, definitely do this trip for the highlights of the region.
The Guide was excellent. His knowledge of Rotorua and especially Maori history was amazing! He was informative, engaging, very friendly and made us all laugh. He made all those on the bus feel relaxed and welcoming.
Very educational. I take blue-green algae on a daily basis. I had the opportunity to actually touch the algae growing in the water.

This was the best tour of our trip! We got the best guide anyone could of had. We had low expectations when we booked this tour, but it was simply great!
This trip was great - amazing sights and the guide was excellent, very enthusiastic and knowledgable.
Great guide. We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather and also were the only two people on the tour that day. The guide was very knowledgeable and interesting.
This was a small group tour with an excellent guide whose knowledge and enthusiasm made the trip very special. I wished that I had booked the whole day tour, as I found it fascinating.
Since we didn't have our own transportation this tour was a great way to see these Waiotapu and Waimangu. Our guide was very fun and knowledgeable. The first morning walk was rushed because we had to get to Lady Knox geyser which was a disappointment. They force it to erupt at 10:00 a.m. so it feels fake. This is a great tour for those without transportation or with little time in the area.
This was a really enjoyable and infromative morning out. Huru (our guide) was very knowledgable on the area and very passionate about his people. The scenery was spectacular and unique. A must do in Rotorua
Excellent tour ,very informative , good variety and not to long.

Just the right amount of time for viewing a wide variety of geysers, bubbling pools, forests, and generally smoking landscape. Knowledgeable guide provided good insights about the entire Park.
This tour allows you to see the most important places in Rotorua in a few hours. Huru, the guide, is nice and knowledgeable which makes this excursion quite enjoyable.
Quite great, was picked up by time, we were only 4 people on the tour and were able to take loads of pictures. Sometimes the guide hurried us a little bit but it is only a half-a-day tour so that was ok
