We only had 6 people on our tour and it was amazing. Linda was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the history and geology of the area, and we thoroughly enjoyed her commentary. In the morning we focused on the geo thermal environment and in the afternoon the Maori culture. We would strongly recommend our guide.

The tour is a photographers dream, there is many subjects to choose from and the well placed paths ensure one has many great angles from which to capture their photo. There is a bit of down/up hill terrain to be aware of which one of moderate physical levels can easily manage. The living Maori Village is very interesting and nice to see as it demonstrates co-existence of traditional and modern living.
Had not heard of Rotorua before researching for our trip. All I can say is everyone needs to go. The scenery is surreal with little thermal vents everywhere. The morning portion of this tour was really mind blowing with the scenery. The afternoon portion was nice, just not as spectacular as the morning. Rotorua is a must see.
Huru was my guide for the full-day tour and he knew lots of things. He explained things passionately, especially about Maori culture. We first started with Wai-O-Tapu then to see Lady Knox Geyser. In the afternoon, he brought us to Te Puia where the carving and weaving skills were showcased. We also get a brief visit to see Kiwi bird in artificial nocturnal setting. Towards the end, we drove through the Blue Lake and Green Lake. Overall it was a day well spent!
Our guide, Huru, was fantastic and we had a great day discovering so many amazing places!
Really enjoyed this tour. Comfortable coach, the guide is very informative and funny. This tour roughly runs from 8:15-5:00 door to door time. There are quite a few walking tours, so it is better to wear comfortable shoes, and bring water and sunscreen. We went in summer, but the weather was quite up and down, it really depends on how everyone feels, but I'd recommend to bring a jacket. Just to add-on to the website's itinerary: After lunch we drove pass the Museum for some photos. We also head to the Whakarewarewa Village as our last stop.
This was a great day. Trent was the best host. Amazing knowledge. We fitted in so much. We were lucky to be the only two people on the trip that day.
Done this tour 20 years ago. Still the best. Great guide
Excellent trip with a knowledgable guide.
Two different guides during the day. Both good. Friendly and knowledgeable. Good day despite the horrific wearher
