A truly remarkable experience
DavidSwartwood

With all the choices for trips and only one day to do them we chose to do the Waitomo caves and Te Puia and the Maori Arts and Crafts Institute. The Waitomo caves were fascinating and so pleased we went. Although not the biggest caverns the Glowworms and our delightful guide "Y" made it truly special. We then drove to Te Puia to experince the thermal springs and geysers. We have a lovely buffet lunch and then explored the area. The geysers were inspirational! We were so caught up in watching the fascinating landscape we never made it to the Maori village, so we have something to do when we come back some day. Our tour guide Matt was great and a very safe driver which is certainly helpful as your spending a long day on the road but worth every minute. Thank you!

Smooth booking , knowledgeable pilot, great views from the air. Highly recommended. Only drawback was the cost of getting there and back by taxi- helipad is not easily accessible by public transport.

What we saw was great however, we thought that if we kept our tours to two that we would spend more time at Rotorua. The tour company is called Flexi-Tour and they pride themselves on being flexible. We spend most of our time dropping off and picking up people who were doing other tours instead of spending more time at Rotorua. Would not have booked this tour if we had realized that we would not be spending more time at Rotorua and just more time in the van.
