An excellent day trip with plenty of time at both Wai-o-tapu & Te Puia geothermal parks. Tour guide Grant is a lovely man & an excellent tour guide. He was very informative along the drive and in Rotorua and he was very careful to accommodate everyone's needs while also making sure we were at the geyser Pohutu in plenty of time to watch it errupt. There was plenty of time at both parks and a lovely hangi buffet lunch at Te Puia overlooking Pohutu. Beautiful views of Lake Rotorua on the return trip. Grant also made great time on the return trip even though he had to make a detour to avoid a traffic issue. I highly recommend this tour.
A very relaxed and informative excursion, perhaps one of the best excursions my wife and I have experienced. Our guide Paul made the whole experience very personal, with some lovely stories and anecdotes. We learned much about the Maori culture and history of New Zealand. It was a great way to see Auckland in a short time, had great views from Mount Eden. The Winter Gardens were special, especially learning about the Silver Fern. My wife and I would thoroughly recommend this type of excursion.
It was really nice trip. It would make it excellent if the price would be a bit less than I paid. The guide was attentive, had a good sense of humour and entertained us all trip. The van was not completely full, and it made journey even more comfy, as you spend a lot of time in the car. Guide had a good organisation skills, therefore the drops off and pick ups were really smooth and quick. It would be nice to have a bit longer time for the second activity (for me was Spa).
What a fantastic experience. Pick up was punctual at 8.10am. David our tour guide and driver was very welcoming. Our 8 hour tour gave us a very comprehensive overview of Auckland city and it’s surrounds. We covered approximately 200klm so we certainly got to see and learn so much about the area. David’s local knowledge was excellent and delivered with humour
Guide was knowledgeable and very fun. He made sure even with bad traffic that he used our time wisely. Gave us suggestions of places to go and things to do for the rest of the day. Really enjoyed the tour
