Such a fun day adventure!

I booked this day tour as a solo traveller and I was so lucky to get such a great driver (Mike) and group also full of other solo travellers! I originally only booked the Wai-O-Tapu attraction and ended up adding on the Te Puia attraction because there isn't a whole lot else to do in Rotorua (I would recommend seeing both). The drive out to Rotorua was lovely and I loved hearing about NZ history and culture along the way!

Friendly and knowledgeable guide

Our guide Kraig is very knowledgeable and friendly. Small group tour allows our guide to cater more time to the intinary which provides better experience than big tour bus and flexi tour. Will definitely book other tour which cheeckykiwitour

Cool

The tour was really cool, because we had many chances to see the Rotorua lakes. I also liked the people participating at the group and our bus driver was really friendly as well. All in all I really would recommend the tour, but in my opinion we should have spent more time at the lakes and maybe in Rotorua itself. Thank you for the amazing tour!!

Awesome. Highly recommended

We had many options to choose. All were looking good at varied prices. We came across this tour and decided to go with it. We booked for Saturday 23rd Mar Tour operator asked to shift it to 24th as 23 Rd tour oprtation was not confirmed. We agreed. Our tour guide Richard was good. We had wonderful time. After a short in vehicle tour of Rotorua, we went to Wait O Taupo (an awesome wonderland). Our trip wouldn't be successful without waiotaupo visit.
