We loved the Waitomo Caves and Rotorua trip. Great Sights hires excellent guides that offer great commentary throughout the drive. Good food. Excellent organization of the tip. Agrodome was especially fun adventure. Highly recommend.
Took this tour because i wanted to visit Waitomo Caves and the geysers in Rotorua. Too much time was spent on the added visits to a farm and a Maori cultural show. We spent too much time on these two additions to the extent that we had just 10 minutes left for the geysers which are the main reason to go on this tour. That is bad planning and ridiculous time allocation. On top of that, the Maori cultural performance was a typical shallow tourist trap where they make the group of visitors choose a chief and dance. Instead of doing infantile things we could have enjoyed the view of the geyser without rush. My time as a tourist is too valuable to risk giving Viator another chance.
Another whole day experience, but well worth it. Caves were awesome, the Agridome was interesting and fun could actually feed turkeys and sheep from your hand. We enjoyed the geyser's beautiful landscape, the cultural show, and especially seeing a kiwi. A full not-so-roomy bus made the ride a little uncomfortable.
Shelley was our driver and guide. She is great. I loved the caves. The cultural center and geysers at Rotorua were wonderful. There was not enough time at Maori cultural center. If you can get a tour thats just the caves and the cultural center do that. The agrodome was not that interesting and took up time we could have had at the Maori cultural center.
