My family and I had an amazing time on this tour. I searched quite a bit to find a tour that was able to do the Rotorua trip with both the Te Puia & Wai-O-Tapu add ons, and I’m so glad I found this because both parts were definitely worth it! Lance was our guide, and he went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and engaged on our drive with interesting stories and his sense of humour. Lance is very knowledgeable and gave us a guided tour within both locations as well. Our highlights were the Champagne Pool, Devil’s Bath, Pohutu Geyser, and the cultural performances. Would definitely recommend this tour for anyone visiting Auckland!

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!

One of the best travel experiences I had. Simon, the tour guide, was fantastic, knew everything about the different spots visited and was very friendly.

Andre, our driver and tour guide, was excellent. Highly recommend this tour company.
