Very interesting tour with a very knowledgable guide that made all the difference. We learned so much about NZ and the Maui culture. Really enjoyed the Kiwifruit orchard as well. Had no idea that they grew on vines like grapes. Great job and a great tour.

It was good to be in a small group tour as it is much easier and more efficient.
After a quick tour through Tauranga, we headed to the kiwifruit orchard. This was very instructive, though the sampling of kiwifruit was limited due to the number of visitors.
Lunch at our own expense in Rotorua was in a nice location with reasonable choices. Following lunch, we made a brief stop in a city park where there are steam and mud pits right in the park. Very interesting.
We then proceeded to Te Puia to see the geothermals and also the Maori show. The visit to Te Puia was worth the trip, seeing the geysers, the blue lagoon, etc.

Our excursion to Te Puia was one of the highlights of our recent trip to Australia and New Zealand. Our driver, Ian, from Shore Trips and Tours was an excellent guide, providing a lot of good info about the area and culture as we drove around Tauranga, then over to Rotorua to visit Te Puia. This is an amazing place with all the geysers, bubbling mud pots, steam vents, etc. Although we've been to Yellowstone and seen this type of geothermal activity on a grander scale, Te Puia is still a great place to experience it. The grounds are laid out well and even though we were on a cruise ship and a lot of other people were there, it didn't feel crowded. We really liked the Maori cultural center and show as well. In fact, that was the highlight for me. We saw the Maori show, which was super, and toured through their carving and weaving workshops. The grounds are filled with large, impressive, detailed Maori carvings, including a 60-ft. long war canoe. It was a great way to learn more about the Maori culture and history. The kiwifruit orchard was interesting but Te Puia was definitely the highlight of this outing.

Our guide was amazing, he squeezed so much info and the sites were incredible. The one part that was very shortened was the kiwifruit orchard mostly just shopping rather than a tour, and more information. Who knew that kiwis grew on a vine. The visit to the geothermal area could not have been more spectacular...geysers were on display in full force. Coach was very comfortable, and again I would highly recommend this tour.

Fabulous tour. Kiwi360 is a gem. The Te Puia geysers and Maori cultural center were unforgettable. However, we would have preferred more time at the underrated museum shop.

Te Puia is a rich cultural experience and not to be missed! The geothermal action by Mother Nature adds to the experience. Our guide was very knowledgable and fun, showings lots of extras as time allowed. It was a memorable day.

This was an excellent tour and very well conducted by John who was incredibly knowledgeable on all aspects of the Maori culture and the environs of Rotorua and all places in between. The tour numbers on a smaller bus made it even more appealing. Well done to all involved.

A very enjoyable day at Rotorua visiting the hot springs and the Maori experience. We ran out of time and our Kiwifruit Orchard visit was very rushed, that was the only down side.
