5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2011

We really enjoyed this tour. The sites were interesting and the hotels were within walking distance to the shops and restaurants as well as picturesque walking paths.

Excellent tour and so much fun we had. The bus drivers are great. Lake Taupo is an amazing place.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this March 2012

Have only clicked one star because will not accept comment without a rating but this tour was not worth even one star,
Three day tour was supposed to be finale to our holiday - having booked on half a dozen other viator tours we expected better - a real disappointment.
It was not a tour - involved 9 different buses - many were service buses and there was no commentary and didn't enjoy backpackers music. Only 2 half day tours one excellent- Lake Taupo the other a quick glimpse of geysers - Sheep show etc and then deposited at hotels by 2pm with nothing to do.No meals included. Had feeling of having been 'ripped of'f' ' as knew we could have put together a better itinerary for half the price we were charged.Totally unsuitable for two mature ladies with large suitcases! Would not suit any self respecting backpacker even if they had money to throw away.
