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.

An absolutely amazing dag, full of beautiful sightseeing, heartbreaking stories and great knowledge of the New Zealand people, historia and traditions. Lance is and amazing guide, and I coul keep on listening to his stories for A VERY LONG TIME!
