What a wonderful day to see the excuisite countryside of New Zealand, plus these two incredible sites. Started with the Waitomo GlowWorm grotto where you descend by foot into these vast caverns under ground. The caves themselves are spectacular, but then you get to board a small boat to visit the glow worm grotto. Thess bioluminescent worms are situated on the ceiling and look like constellations in the sky as there are so many of them. You glide along in the boat in the silent dark while marveling at the incredible site above you. It is like Phantom of the Opera meets the Milky Way- just fabulous! Next was our trip to Rotorua with a stop at Agridome for a sheep shearing demonstration plus we got to hand feed various sheep and deer. We then proceeded to a wonderful Maori village situated on an active geothermal site. The Maori dancers and singers were so delightful in their traditional garb and their voices were beautiful. Enjoyed a wonderful concert of song, dance and traditions. Next came a guided tour of the geysers and mud pots which surround the Te Puia village. Our guide actually lives on site as his family have done for generations so his narrative was especially informational about the Maori lifestyle. This was a great tour and would recommend it highly.
Wow what a fantastic day I had on this tour. It was a long day, but with my limited time in Auckland, it was well worth every penny and every minute. Our coach driver Ben, was a great host/ driver/ knowledge of information. Every aspect of the day was a brilliant experience. Highly recommended
Amazingly good tour! We were spell bound by the glow worms at the caves. The hot geysers in Rotorua were awesome! The guide was a lovely lady who drove us from auckland all the way and back. We had some good on the way lunch and snacks in the evening on the return drive. Thank you!
This is a great tour and definitely worth the money. It is a long jam packed day, however our tour guide was so friendly and knowledgeable that time flew by.
It is a worthy tour. the Waitomo Cave is amazing.
Excellent tour. Wonderfully led. The bus driver was an excellent host with stories and pointing out places of interest. I am glad I went.
Definitely a full day of interesting activities and places to visit
A long, but soooo worth it, trip! Rachel our coach driver was great--kept us fed, hydrated, and informed! The sites are quite incredible and special! Don't miss it.
My daughter and I took this tour on September 19, 2017. We loved it! Yes, it is a long day since we did the round trip tour. Some people chose to spend the night in Rotorua, which made their day a little shorter. We needed to return to Auckland. The driver was wonderful and I wish I could remember his name. Both lunch and dinner sandwich meals were included and plenty of water bottles. We saw the Waitomo glow worm caves, the Agrodome, the Maori culture center show which was wonderful and included with our tour, and the geothermal areas of Rotorua. It was a great experience!
This tour was amazing!
