Our tour guide Sue was very accomodating and informative. Our tour of the Maori village was so interesting and the performance they put on was very entertaining. We would highly recommend this tour.

Very good guide with detailed knowledge of the area. Extremely helpful to my disabled wife.
We really enjoyed this tour with Sue the bus driver. She was very knowledgeable and shared points of interest with us as we made our way to Rotorua. What an amazing place this is. Don't forget to go to the boiling mud location that our Moari guide did not take us to, although her tour itself was very well done.
This excursion was the longest we undertook, leaving the berthed cruise ship early in the morning and being returned late afternoon. The small vehicle trip 11 tourists with the driver/guide made for an intimate excursion and we saw a considerable amount of the land between Tauranga and Rotorua, some 80 kilometres from Tauranga. In Rotorua we visited the Living Maori village of Whakarewarewa and experienced a cultural performance by the village inhabitants and were guided around the various sights in the village by an experienced Maori guide. A highlight of the tour was the corn on the cob cooked in the murderous ripples of Parekohuru - the largest hot springs in the village - whether it was the form of cooking or the corn itself that was so sweet, remains a mystery to be answered by the next visitors. On the return trip to Tauranga a short call to a Kiwi Fruit Farm was made and it was interesting to see how the vines are grown close up. The Kiwi Fruit icecream made here was enjoyed by all and sundry. Altogether another very worthwhile excursion.

Very informative guide/driver
An excellent excursion with Stephen, our driver/guide who was informative and amusing! The excursion was all it had promised and Stephen was brilliant, he gave lots of facts about the places we visited and gave consideration to all of his passengers and our individual interests and needs. I would thoroughly recommend this tour.
The tour was very good. Went to a Redwood forest, visited a Moari village. The Moari village was on thermal hot spots and had locals guide us through the village. They did a show of their native dance.
We visited a Maori living village and saw a Maori cultural dance. We also had a Maori guide to talk about their livelihood in the village. We then had a scenic drive around a lake in Rotorua and a kiwi farm. Both the driver and the guide gave detailed descriptions/comments along the way. Additionally, we were given a bottle of water to quench our thirst and kiwi ice cream in the kiwi farm.
The entire excursion lasted about 6 hours. All in all, it's great value and a wonderful experience.
Realy good value enjoyed the thermal springs and the Moira village experience. Loved the dancers and somewhere comedians so it was also fun.Great guide well worth new customers doing.
The thermal springs of Whakarewarewa are just amazing to see!!
