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.

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.

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.

This was one of the best tours we have ever taken. It was much better than what the ship provides. Our tour guide Dave was extremely helpful and made sure we were well taken care of. He explained everything thoroughly and went above and beyond. I would highly recommend this tour rather than one from the ship.

This tour was excellent. We were lucky to have a gorgeous sunny day. Our Guide/Driver Dave is a local who was extremely knowledgeable about each tour stop and New Zealand in general. He had a lovely delivery and was very informative. We were in a small mini bus that holds no more than 14 people, so you felt quite comfortable and getting on and off the bus was quite smooth and quick. The stops at the Te Puia Maori Cultural Center was excellent and entertaining. They sang my favourite song Poh Kare Kare Ana which was absolutely delightful presented by a young couple. There was also a photo opportunity with the Maori entertainers after the show. The scenery was magnificent and included a stop at the Okeri Falls which was hidden away. The commentary was continuous throughout the tour and in great detail including the history of the Maori walk which is now the highway. We had a lovely lunch at a cafe by the lake and had the place to ourselves as we were there at the tail end of lunchtime. This was a very relaxing and informative tour and we fitted in a lot including th kiwi house, where we saw a real live Kiwi, which was bigger than I expected. Dave returned us to the ship in plenty of time, if this is a concern for you. Thank you Dave.....

This was a very good tour from Tauranga to Rotorua. It was excellent value because it included entry to Te Puia and also a Maori Performance. We were able to see the geysers, the mud pools and the weaving and carving exhibits. Very pleased with the Tour Guide and the value for money. Excellent!

Excellent tour although the weather was appalling and it rained all day spoiling the views. The tour guide was very good and knowledgeable. Not so enthused with the Kiwi experience.
