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

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.

The scenery from Tauranga to Rotorua alone was worth the tour. The Maori village was a dramatic experience. Maori group was colorful and unexpectedly talented.

Rainy weather caused the tour guide to change a little bit of our itinerary however, he was very accommodating and very well organized about making sure we saw as much as possible. We went to the working Maori village and had an excellent tour, as well as we managed to be there at the right time to see the geyser in the thermal village go off. I was thankful of all their organization to make sure we saw what we could and enjoyed ourselves. The place selected for us to get lunch was very good quality and in a nice location as well.

A wonderful tour to Rotorua - despite being an hour late off the ship due to docking issues. The bus picked us up right near the ship with very friendly and helpful staff guiding us to our bus. Our driver was funny and informative - and a very safe driver. Highly recommend this trip.

We had a wonderful tour with Shona, can't recommend it highly enough. Just the two of us on the tour so she used the total time to show us some extra spots. We had a wonderful day, thank you Shona. our booking experience was without fault. All went to plan, thank you a great experience.

We enormously enjoyed our Sea Princess tour around New Zealand late Oct. thru early Nov. 2014.

Being our first cruise, it took a few days to orient ourselves around the ship but soon got used to it aided by the supplied map of the ship. Particularly convenient was the "Ship-card" - which was all we needed to unlock our stateroom and to pay for everything necessary, including drinks, gifts and land excursions.

ALL staff were extremely helpful, friendly and courteous and the on-board entertainment, lectures and amenities were first class.

Particularly "dangerous" was the food, of which we cannot speak too highly - tempting ALL tastes.

My wife and I took a zillion pictures and videos (we are enthusiastic photographers) and have been busy, since our return, processing and arranging them - particularly the videos and panoramas for the enjoyment of out family and friends.

We are already planning another cruise for early next year.

Thank you,

This tour was fantastic. There were only four of us in the group, and the guide was brilliant. He took his time to show us the sights. Felt very safe with his driving. The tour to the Mauri village was interesting and included a cultural show as well as a guided tour within the village.

This was a great tour-one of our favourites. The weather was very wet sadly but the driver Graeme made it all worthwhile. Not only was he very informative and local traditions, landscape and just life in general, ne was happy to take questions, but it was obvious he enjoyed his job. The venue was lunch was quaint and if it had been sunny it would have been very pretty spot. The kiwi farm was really interesting too and the shop there had lots of products to choose from. The visit to the maori village and springs and show was fantastic - really enjoyable hearing about their way of life and listening to their singing.
