This was the best tour I have ever been on. I got to see so many beautiful and amazing sites. Everything included in this trip is most definitely worth it. The tour was constantly moving so I never felt like I was just staring at something for a long time. there was so much to do and see and I got to experience it all in one day, which I would not have done without this tour. I wouldn't have even known about half of these places without going on the tour. The tour guide was so nice and she knew an insane amount of details and history everywhere we went. It is something I could have never gotten from just googling anything. I saw more than I thought was included on the tour, and got to experience more than I ever thought I would. Highly recommend, it is a must.

Brian was amazing

Brian was a fantastic guide. It was amazing to have an amazing local indigenous guide with wealth of knowledge. Good conversations and very accommodating. Didn’t feel rushed and ticked off all the list of what I wanted to see in Rotorua. I have a keen interest in indigenous culture as I’ve worked with indigenous Australians, it was amazing to get insight into Maori culture and life. Brian was proud to be Maori and proud to impart knowledge. Thank you Brian, amazing work! :)

La guide était vraiment très sympathique. Outre les visites prévues, elle nous a tout expliqué et montré les différentes choses à voir dans la région (lac vert et bleu), la ville,... Malgré mes difficultés en anglais, elle faisait tout de même les efforts nécessaires pour la compréhension. A recommander, visite très complète
