What people are saying about Bay of Plenty Region

Our guide was exceptional, our experience was memorable.

Louise, our guide, was incredibly inviting and informative throughout the entirety of our trip. We spent about three hours driving through beautiful countryside learning about New Zealand’s history, agriculture, and Maori culture. We went to both Wai o Tapu Geothermal Park and the geothermal park/Maori culture park at Te Puia. The former was beautiful, and Louise made sure we knew how these geothermal areas were used by the Maori. Te Puia was an amazing experience, as we were graciously invited to participate in a welcome ceremony and performance, and toured the on-site school that teaches traditional arts and culture to new generations. It was extremely interesting (and heartening) to learn about the Maori and see the work being done to preserve their traditions. Walking through the rest of the park, we even got to see a geyser erupt amidst the smoking craters and pools. The day was extremely memorable, and our guide was one of the most pleasant people we met.

Good to visit at least once if you like the Lord of the Rings

The place was nice and great to have a walk around and take photos. The downside of the tour was that it was too short and too fast-paced so we didn't have enough time to take the photo as we needed to follow the group that we belong to. The tour guide's voice wasn't very loud so it was difficult to catch what he was saying. Other than that, it was nice and kids were also enjoyed.

A nice way to see 3 famous places in NZ in one day!

If you don't have a lot of time left and you're in hurry, go for this trip and you shouldn't be disappointed! Right, everything was kinda rushed and I just wish there was more time in Rotorua but c'mon, there's no other way to see these all places in barely one day! The guide made sure everyone is safe and sound and on time.

Enjoyable, professional experience that lived up to expectations.

Very good tour. Guide was nice and helpful, often offering to take group photos. Information was good, though perhaps a little scripted. The dark beer in the green dragon was pretty decent. Overall an enjoyable, professional experience that lived up to expectations.

Hobbiton was a hit amongst our whole family group of 8 people!

We travelled from Australia to NZ on a holiday to visit family. Our trip to Hobbiton was a surprise to my 11 year old son and it did not disappoint! Our tour guide Louis was a bonus too!
