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.

Enjopyable days tour with good weather. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

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!

Lovely dinner and beautiful song and dance

We enjoyed very much the hangi dinner with lots of delicious food to choose from. It was all well organised and the haka song and dance was beautiful. We were also lucky to see the geysers in full action. It is although very “setup” for tourists so if you expect authentic Maori people living in their houses then don’t go here.

Amazing food, amazing staff, amazing view!

We had such a great experience! I took my husband here for his birthday, He loves the food and had a birthday to remember. I would like to thank our waitress for the night, Hana. She was so lovely.
