This was a fantastic tour. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, very friendly, took us to more places than were listed and because of his contacts at each attraction we didn't have to queue.

Sixteen of us from Singapore had booked a 1-day Rotorua tour with Tauranga Tasting Tours and Charters. Paul, the proprietor, was our driver and coach. His long years of experience showed. As we drove by the beach road of Tauranga, he could even tell us the price increases of several of the residential properties! And because of his vast knowledge that he wanted to share, he didn't tolerate interruptions to his presentations. The lakeside cafe he drove us to for a late lunch was pleasant.

This was a great day. We met our tour guide Rick, at the cruise port. The tour had a total of 7 people, all of us from the same ship. Rick was a gracious, knowledgable and fun guide. He made the area come alive with its historical and current issues. The village and geothermal spring was a highlight

Our tour guide was Sandy, and he was excellent. The tour took us to Te Puia, where you can see the geothermal wonders, Maori cultural center, and Pohutu geyser. This was an amazing area and natural geysers and scenic overviews and grey mud pools. There was a slight sulfur smell, but not as much as I had expected. It was a clear blue sky day, and the steam and bubbling made for dramatic views around every corner. It would have made a great backdrop for a Sci-Fi film. The Maori tribal center was informative as well as entertaining. Also had stops at a lake, and redwood forest, kiwifruit farm on the way back. Excellent guide and tour.

This tour was all that we expected. We were in a small group and had a very enjoyable driver/guide with plenty of information and stories between stops. The stops were well organized and interesting and we had a very nice lunch at a cafe on the lake shore.
