Great day

Our tour was in a large van and we saw everything we wanted to see. The Maori Village was great, the performance was informative and entertaining. We were able to walk around the village and view the geothermal springs. Time was included for shopping too. We also were able to walk around among the redwoods. Very impressive. Would definitely recommend.

This was a wonderfully authentic tour of the Maori steaming vents and their special bubbling muds and gushing geysers. The show was excellent and our tour guide went out of his way to show us the land, lakes, and gardens.magical

New van and driver were waiting for us outside the pier. Driver commentary was clear and appropriate. The kiwi farm tasting was a nice break. The Maori village/geothermal tour and entertainment were more than expected. Everyone in our group liked the lunch choices and setting. On our way back our guide showed us the redwoods and more geothermal sites. Great value!

Great tour with excellent tour guide

We were on a cruise and booked this tour independently. Our guide Andrew was very knowledgeable, and I learned a lot from him about the history of New Zealand, and the Rotorua region. There were only 8 of us in the group, so there were plenty of chances to communicate with him. The visit to Whakarewarewa geothermal living Maori Village was good, and this part of the tour was conducted by a local guide. We saw hot pools, boiling mud, geysers, etc The highlight of the visit here was the cultural show that included song, poi dance and haka ceremonial dance. Afterwards we had a nice lunch (preordered with Andrew at the beginning of the tour) at a hotel nearby. After lunch, we stopped by a few places in Rotorua - the rose garden, the redwood memorial grove for a short walk in the forest, and finally a kiwi fruit plantation where we could sample and purchase kiwi fruit product. We were taken back to the port by 4 pm, still had a bit of time to walk around the port area. It was a great excursion and many thanks to Andrew who looked after us nicely all the way. I highly recommend this.

took this tour as opposed to the official cruise ship tour. Apart from it being considerably cheaper we were well looked after. The time at Rotorua cultural experience was very authentic. Excellent tour bus guide in a comfortable mini bus. Lunch at the local hotel was 1st class. Recommend this tour.

This Tour was Excellent. Our Guide was also Really Good. Our Cruise ship changed their port times the day before and this company was very flexible and accommodating to our schedule changes. The Maori Village we went to in Rotorua was really interesting. We only needed a little more time here to get closer to the Geysers, as the area was quite large. However a lot was also covered. And the day was very enjoyable.

We had a wonderful day. We were collected from the Wharf in Tauranga and saw the local area before driving to Rotorua to see geysers, mud pools and much more, including the Redwood Forest. The complimentary kiwifruit ice-cream at the Orchard was delicious. We were back at the ship with time to spare so went swimming at the local beach. Would thoroughly recommend this tour, great value for money.
