Great tour, all included in the price except for lunch. Dave, our driver, was excellent. He really knew the area and its history. The mini bus was able to take my husband's mobility scooter.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

Great tour in Nov 2016. Like others we had Dave as our driver and he was great. Only disappointment is that Liwi 360 closed so we stopped by a Kiwi orchard on side of road.

It was a very informative, well-organized 7 hr. tour led by Paul Marston. It was a much better value than the shore excursion offered by Holland America with more stops. We especially enjoyed our time with the Maoris in their village and on board our ship, the Noordam. Please find the review that I submitted last week, as it was detailed and very complimentary.

This was a fantastic tour,there was just 4 of us all from England in the group and maybe it was because our Driver/guide DAVE was born in England there was an immediate rapport
Dave was really enthusiastic about his job and this ways certainly one of the most enjoyable tours of our holiday !

Our guide, Dave, was great. Very knowledgeable. Got us everywhere on time. He even was able to tell us the approximate time of some of the hot springs eruptions just by looking at the steam coming out. Great pics of the venting of the steam and water.

The Maori show was fantastic. From the first being invited in by a ritual dancer to all the singing and dancing inside, enjoyed every minute. This trip was well worth the cost.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2016

Great Tour! The Te Pula Maori Culture Center was wonderful. The Thermal grounds were interesting but nothing to compare with Yellowstone. We saw the Kiwi and were surprise at how the Kiwi grows. We enjoyed our driver who was very Timely so we got every place on time. He was personable and gave us a great tour of the area. He was very easy to understand.
