What people are saying about Rotorua

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.

Great fun with spectacular view of Rotorua & Redwood Forest

I was looking for activities that my 11 year old son would like while still exploring the beautiful New Zealand landscape and came across the Luge. We took a 20 minute taxi ride from the downtown area and it cost about $30 NZ. I pre-bought the gondola ride and luge tickets but you still have to check in. The line wasn't long for us, so not a big deal. The gondola ride was lovely, which surprised me because both my son and I are afraid of heights. Great views of the forest and the Rotorua area. The luge has three paths, scenic; intermediate and advanced. You have to be over 10 do the intermediate and advanced. the paths go through the redwood forest. You get a brief lesson on the luge which is all you need. I only did the scenic but my son did the intermediate. You take a chair lift back up and they will slow it down for you if you need. Overall a great time. We went down 3 times and spent no more than 2 hours there. Great fun!

Great attraction supported by great customer service.

Great day out to an awesome attraction. The main concern was liaison with the company the previous day to confirm arrangements. This went without a hitch. The rest was as it were plain sailing. The guided tour of the island was informative and paced for ample viewing and photography time. There was a no fuss approach to safety which quelled any doubtful thoughts about potential risk and let everyone get on with enjoying the experience. Staff were really friendly and approachable. Nothing seemed a problem. Within the limitations provided by the trip the vegetarian lunch(I'm no fan) was delicious and ample. Walking inside an active volcanic crater was awesome. It was a top experience maximised by a professional personnel.

White Island Day Tour from Whakatane or Rotorua Reviewed by leighton, 10/05/2018

Fantastic, fun, and completely unique trip.

The Rotorua Lakes Duck Tour was a fun ride. How often do you get to ride in a genuine WW2 amphibious landing craft, and drive around on the roads in the same vehicle? Shelley, our guide, was fun and entertaining, although her jokes are really groan-worthy (just kidding). The look on the face of a driver in the car next to us as we came back into town and 20+ idiots in a DUKW blasted out a cacophony of duck calls was priceless. The views of the lakes were great, both from the road, and from in the lakes themselves. Note to Shelley's boss: we had at least 100 cars and a family of snails backed up behind us going up the hill outside Rotorua.

Fab not to miss, one-off experience. Excellent crew engagement.

So glad I did this, as the whole trip from the boat ride (seeing dolphins), chatting to the other international passengers, was unmissable. nothing was too much trouble for the crew, amazing tour of the island, and a packed lunch of a healthy variety. Would definitely recommend .
