5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

Excellent trip. Peter Peter600 was an excellent driver and guide to our small group of 4. Very informative with a good sense of humour. Te Puia with the Cultural Show and of course the geysers were the highlights but the rest of Rotorua was also very interesting and worthwhile as was seeing the kiwifruit plantations. Most visitors just see Te Puia and Rotorua but we felt that the Hell'sGate add on was also fascinating and very different to everything else with its boiling mud pools and lakes. I was hoping for something more 'hellish' but although hot enough that day there were no devils and pitchforks visible. Despite that it was definitely worth it and made our visit to the Rotorua area far more memorable. Recommended.

We had a great day. Peter our guide was extremely knowledgable and gave us some excellent tips throughout the day on how to make the most of our time at each site. There ended up just being two of us on the tour so we were very pleasantly surprised that we were not asked to join a different tour . We were given a people mover instead of a bus and thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Peter the guide added a great deal to the experience

We loved this trip, and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to explore a day at Rotorua. Russell, our guide, was fantastic. We were taken around in a lovely Mercedes SUV with one other couple. It was very comfortable. Russell accommodated our needs by stopping when and where we asked while also keeping to the tour schedule.The tour met all our needs by way of what we wanted to see in and around Rotorua. We felt that Russell was very knowledgeable and would tell us all about where we were going and would explain everything to us. He also gave us good vantage points on where to stand to be able to view the special performances or certain things. We had a wonderful day and the memories of it will stay with us for a long time! Thank you!

Fantastic tour! The Thermal beds we fascinating. Because our group was only 11 plus the guide, he was able to stop at several places not on the itinerary. Loved seeing how the kiwi fruit grows.
