This tour is the best way to see some culture and sights of Tauranga on a short stay. The driver was very knowledgable of the area and the history. The van was also very comfortable. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Tauranga.
Great trip Graham our driver was very knowledgable and professional , we covered a lot of ground and loved hearing about the Maori traditions.
I was in a group of about 22 travelers who booked this excursion prior to our cruise. I was a bit hesitant as it wasn't booked through Royal Caribbean. I was pleasantly surprised at how wonderful the entire experience was. Our Driver was fantastic and the entire day was the high light of our 13 night cruise. I want to thank Viator for a wonderful excursion!!! I will recommend you to everyone travelling to New Zealand.
Loved it thanks heaps will always book thru viator so well run.Thanks again for making our holiday memorable : our driver was also wonderful :
Excellent tour, except when the driver forgot to lock the bus during our absence and someone's backpack was taken.
We enjoyed this tour very much. The guide was very good on the bus. The Maori village was interesting and entertaining.
Driver is very knowledgable. It covered quite a bit of places. Everything they promised and more.We even got free kiwi ice cream at the kiwi plantation. I have no complaint at all. Booked it ahead before your cruise. Don't waste money with cruise company. They charge you double or even triple than viator.com
This was an excellent tour because our guide Jan was very knowledgeable about New Zealand
She answered all questions with authority and when she did not know something she did not try to make something up.
The trip to the geyser and springs in the Indian town were excellent.
Despite inclement weather, a very pleasant, varied tour. In particular, the visit to the Maori village was exceptional and not to be missed. Staff were both helpful and pleasant. Highly recomended.
Rotorua was very interesting. We enjoyed the performance of the Maori.
The tour was a bit rushed, there were many things to see and no time to experience them really. At least we had 90 Min. in Rotrua.
Excellent tour, the guide Graeme? was very knowledgable and timed it to perfection to get us back tot he cruise ship well ahead of time. smaller group so much better than the bigger cruise ship excursions which were almost 3 x the price , Highly recommended and value for money!

Excellent tour. Driver/guide Graham gave lots of information along the way as well as at sites visited, very friendly and helpful person. Our local guide at Rotorua was also excellent, very passionate about her country and heritage and enjoyed the performance we attended. A good tour at a good price.
Everything went as arranged I was very impressed as this is my first experience doing tours from an outside source not the cruise ship. The tour was good and very informative.

We enjoyed this tour since we were able to see much of the countryside. Learning about the Maori and their culture was a highpoint.
The guide was very knowledgeable had a terrific day with her. Realized have way through the tour that it was her company as she usually doesn't go out on tours any more so we were lucky. Would definitely tell people to go on this tour, good explanations, wonderful things to see, lovely spot for lunch and good value. Linda from Vancouver
This tour was fantastic. Graeme our driver was great, highly recommend it. Great tour for the price compared to the tours from the ship. Had great weather enjoyed the experience at the Whakarewarewa Village and all the places we visited on this tour.
A very good tour covering lots of aspects of Rotorua. Our ship arrived 3 hours later than expected into port but a bus was ready for us, as we had been assured it would be when we advised Viator of the change to our ship's itinerary. The Maori village was very interesting and our guide there was very informative. The commentary on the bus trip was also very interesting and we had a great day.
We had a great day. Coach driver was very knowledgeable. Lunch location was good, catered for my coeliac food. The driver rang ahead to make sure there was suitable food available.We were back at the ship in plenty of time.
great tour guide both on the bus and at the thermal site. Worth the money.
I was extremely pleased with the complete tour. It was everything discribed in the description. Guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. Would definitely suggest your tour company again.
Great tour, interesting place to visit and a very knowledgeable tour driver.
Fantastic excursion.All the sights and scenery were impressive,but also driver Kevin,who is a living history book about the area.The Viator guarantee makes this top value and an easy way to save a lot of money compared to ship price for similar.
