A Worthwhile Experience!

Definitely try to book the 12:50pm shuttle so you can make it in time for the 1:30 guided tour. Our tour guide, Tu, was knowledgeable about both Maori history and legend, as well as geothermal science, and made the whole tour feel very personal. He also taught us how to carve after the tour. The area looks so weird and alien because of the hot pools and the surrounding sulfur oxide deposits, and is definitely worth experience. It was incredibly fun to cake yourself in the mud bath afterward, and the sulfur spa was a perfect way to end a long day. Make sure to rent a bathing suit and towel if you are doing a mud bath, and afterward pack your clothes in a small bag separate from the rest of your things or it'll make other clothes smell in your luggage.
