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.

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!

We only had one day to explore the North Island, so we chose this full day tour of Waitomo Caves, Agrodome, Maori Cultural Centre and Rotarua. It was terrific .... very long day ... but the coach is so comfortable with climate control and tilting seats. Ben was our driver and he did an outstanding job! The coach has wifi, and you can reserve a particular seat, but not necessary. Greeted with a warm smile and fruit cup before setting off to the Caves. Arrived at Caves at 11.20, and that tour is interesting. ... kids will especially like it. Picnic lunch on bus while we drove to Agrogrow. Sheep shearing and sheep herding a treat. Feeding animals is always fun. Rotarua city looks very interesting...I would have liked to spend the night to explore more. Apparently it's an option to spend an overnight in Rotarua, but we didn't know about this ahead of time. Maori Cultural Center very fun and new construction will provide more interest. The geysers and geothermal mud flats are fascinating. Would loved to have booked a spa while there ... perhaps next time. Five o'clock saw us back on the road for the long, dark ride back to Auckland. Let's face it, it's a heck of a long day ... but at least YOU didn't have to drive for 12 hours, can't say enough about Ben's driving ability, commentary and pleasant sense of humor.

Fantastic day trip. Managed to see a number of highlights on the one day. For the amount of experience and the length of the trip, the money spent was worth it. Even the lunch provided was better than expected...they catered for my dietary requirements and it was delicious. Provided plenty of bottled water too.

This was a super trip. Figure it is going to be a long, tiring and worthwhile day. We selected the trip because of the glow worms, and they were fantastic. Our guide, who had a lovely voice, even sang to us in the cavern. However, we enjoyed the Agri-farm stop equally well. This was a surprise, because we've had similar experiences, but the staff, cleanliness, and genuine love of their jobs and animals brought joy to all of us. A highlight was feeding an ostrich! The Maori cultural stop and thermal geysers was interesting as well, but felt crowded. Our bus driver Rachel kept up an entertaining and helpful monologue enroute. Plan this trip after you've had a good night's rest - it was worthwhile.

This was a great tour! I was concerned it would be too long, but the time flew by. The visit to the caves was fabulous. The caves were beautiful and the glowworms breathtaking. I've been to other glowworm caves, but this was by far the best. The visit to the agrodome was fun. We watched a sheep shearing and a herding demo by the sheep dog. We also got to feed the sheep. Next was a visit to a Maori village,where we saw a very good show and then onto the geysers, which were at the peak of their eruptions. Along the way we passed beautiful landscapes.

Our guide was very friendly, informative and knowledgeable. He was able to field all the questions hurled at him. The bus was quite comfortable, with WiFi, and even the box lunch provided I chose the chicken and snacks were delicious.

While this tour is a little pricey, you really do get your money's worth. I'd strongly recommend it.

It was a great tour and certainly did not seem like 13 hours. The time went by quickly but we had enough time in each of the destinations and enjoyed each one thoroughly. Would highly recommend it to anybody our tour guide was named Ben and he was very informative and pleasant. The bus even had Wi-Fi

Our day trip to Rotorua from Auckland was great. Our 4 year old son loved the bus tour and the glow worms. Pick up was smooth and stressfree. Kenny our driver made the trip fun and interesting.

Not many things can make you go WOW, but the glow worms in the Waitomo caves sure did. Amazing, great tour.

This trip was great. It was a very long day, but our coach driver, Rachael, was excellent. I was traveling by myself and highly recommend it for solo travelers. It takes you to parts of the north island you otherwise wouldn't see especially if you're like me and are terrified of driving on the correct side of the road, and to know that your lunch and snacks are included with the price is worth it. If you are staying at a central hotel in Auckland, they will even pick you up the morning of just make sure you arrange for it ahead of time!. The glow worm cave was out of this world. Too bad you can't take pictures, but I know the photos would do it no justice. I really recommend this tour!

Excellent stops and funny driver Beenan. A bit hard on the backside for the trip back to Auckland which takes about 3 1/2 hours. Could use a rest stop!
