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!

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.

Trent was a great guide, very knowledgeable, generous spirited and very good value. Glad we took the full day tour rather than the half day because we got to see so much more of the local area and another geyser.

Our guide, Huru, was excellent. We learned so much from him about the geology of the area and also about the history and culture of the Maori people .We had a very good tour of the area, which is amazing. We could not have had a better experience. Thanks.

I found the day absolutely wonderful. I was met on time by Huru who was my guide for the day. I understood it was close to the end of the season, but I was very impressed that the tour was run as I was the only client. He was very knowledgible about the geology of the area which interested me greatly as I am a petroleum geologist. He also told me a lot about the local Maouri culture which I followed up further at the town Museum the following day. He was great company and it was a fascinating day. It made my trip down from KeriKeri well worth the long journey on two buses and I fully recommend the tour. It was excellent.

If you are interested in the thermal areas around Rotorua, this tour is very informative and fascinating. Our guide Karl, was very knowledgeable about the geology of the area and of the Maori culture. Suggest that the visit to Lady Knox Geyser be removed as it is contrived and not in the Eco tour theme.

This tour was excellent. The tour guide was friendly and amazingly helpful. We were picked up in a spacious vehicle and taken to some great places. The guide was able to show and tell us some spectacular things and then was sensitive enough to give us some time to explore things by ourselves. To any one going to Rotorua for a visit, we would suggest you take this tour and see some great stuff.
