Very well informed guides -Gary and David were excellent.We were treated as VIPs throughout.
Excellent tour. Vic went out of his way to show us some extra scenes and his knowledge of New Zealand was fantastic. We opted to stay in Rotorua and he dropped us to our hotel and assisted with our luggage.
It was indeed an exciting day trip. The amazing green country side and scenery was just unbelievable. Every one traveling with us in our van were as amazed as me and arriving at Rotorua was just another incredible site. Lunch was good and enjoyed the people who had lunch with us as they were coming from different parts of the world, all quite fascinated being in Rotorua and seeing such gorgeous sites like the Blueys thermal pool, enjoying the biggest geyser in the southern hemisphere and the heated mud pools. The icing on the cake at the end of the tour was spending few hours at the Polynesian spa where we relaxed. The only thing I regret was not buying more manuka honey.
Driver Gary was a delight just absolutely exceptional he gave us tips about New Zealand, history tidbits, and drove us through the Prime Minister's hometown, just for kicks. Oh, the Rotorua tour? That was great too! I enjoyed the quick lesson in pronouncing Maori. One thing that wasn't included in the booking was the Haka presentation, so pay for that onsite because it was worth it. I added the hot springs spa to my day trip. While nice, the water is--yep, you guessed it--hot, so it was good for a half hour or so. I suggest that, instead of the hot springs, you do the add-on to see the additional geysers.
This tour was excellent. It was great being part of a small, friendly group, and the tour guides Chris and Dallas were both fantastic. They both went out of their way to ensure we were seeing what we wanted to, and were flexible if we finished an activity before we were supposed to! The set up at Te Puia was fantastic- as was seeing the geyser. The resident kiwi was hiding when I was there, but it was lovely they had one. I added in the tour of Waiotapu Thermal Wonderland- and recommend it.
Most enjoyable day trip . Driver timely ,efficient and helpful .Maori guide and dance display very appropriate and enjoyable.Loved the black swans .
I ended up buying this tour halfway through the hour, but it was a pleasant surprise. It starts very early but the staff was very punctual. We spent the morning in the city of Rotorua, we saw the Maori culture center and several places with geothermal activities which are very beautiful. The ride is long but worth it.
