What You Can Expect
A very enjoyable full day of activities. Easy day for the driver/guide as all attractions are solid on their own.
Knowledgeable tour guide and good value for the money. We enjoyed it very much and will use Viator in the future. This was our first tour and it was recommended by people on our cruise.
Outstanding! Van driver was amazing. Because other passengers did not show up, my friend and I had Pete totally to ourselves and saw sites at leisure.
Thorough explanation of some of the Maori culture and traditions. Unfortunately, my camera went kaput and did not take enough photos, my bad. Worth the paid and then some. Thank you, Viator!
The day was very enjoyable! The guide did a great job!
The tour was terrific, the guide was knowledgable and everything went very well. I would certainly recommend this tour.
Our guide Wendy covered everything we wanted to see and more. Having tickets and tour times organised before we arrived at Rotorua ensured we wasted no time, but we weren't rushed. Because we had time to spare Wendy gave us a tour of Tauranga, having a small group meant no time waiting for a crowd to get on and off a bus, Lunch at a favourite lunch place for Wendy was lovely. Pick up and drop off at our cruise ship was timely and convenient.
tour guide was great , tour was great went to Te Puia Maori Cultural Centre and rotorua sight seeing seen a lot of the country,geissers and natural springs would recommend
It was great, the guide was very informative and we really enjoyed a wonderful experience.
On a different note a would like to say how professional Viator was in refunding our money for a cancelled jet boat trip from Christchurch. We arrived home to find our refund already deposited in our account. I would definitely use Viator again and would recommend them to our friends.
Stops on the way to Rotorua, specifcally the Kiwi 360 Centre and Okere Falls, were OK and the info provided by our guide, Robin, from Zealandier, was very interesting.
However, the big attraction for us was the visit to Te Puia in Rotorua. Our guide was helpful and accompanied us throughout the complex. We really enjoyed Te Puia, including the Maori cultural show, the Maori village and other displays. But the highlight was the geothermal activity and the geysers. That was amazing! The brief visit to other places of interest in Rotorua after lunch was fine too. The drive back from Rotorua to Tauranga was long but the guide tried to make it as interesting as possible and also showed us a bit of Tauranga, Overall we were quite pleased with this tour.
Our guide/bus driver did not give us enough information as the other guides. He was short in explanations and quick to move on. The area was very interesting. It would have been good to interact with some the Maoris. Perhaps some explaining in the wood and weave shop could have been done.
