Very good service

This tour is perfect for those who don't have neither much time nor a large budget but don't want to lose the opportunity of visiting one of the most famous tourist spots in New Zealand. A fair price for the service. Comfortable coach, enthusiastic, funny and well-informed drive. The sandwiches included have good quality and flavour; and you always will have a bottle of water during the tour. Unfortunatelly, the visits to the spots are not so long, because there is much to see in each place.

Best Day Trip from Auckland

If you have only one day in hand and you wish to see the glow worm caves and the geysers then this is the perfect day trip for you. Loved the whole experience. Saw the magical presence of glow worms at the Waitomo caves, met some adorable farm animals at Agrodome and then saw the majestic geysers and the Maori Cultural experience at Te Puia... All in all a fun day around for all! Our driver/guide Rachel was amazing and gave us a lot of info about NZ, the Maori legends and gave insights about the rivers, forests and mountains during our journey. Thanks Gray Line Tours and Great Sights for the wonderful time!

Superb One Day Trip

Although the weather was not so friendly from the beginning, we could still do all the activity very well. The food was also great and tasty. Thank you, Aotearoa

Great tour, flavours of NZ

The tour is well organized; everything is on-time (except for other tourists!) and well thought out, including: the snacks, meals and water, advice for where to find toilets at the sites, drop-off and pick-up locations and times, etc. Driver was professional and knowledgeable. The longest stretches of driving were 3 hours, but the motor coach is comfortable and clean. Was nice to see the NZ countryside on the way to the sites: Waitomo Caves - a truly unique, natural experience; Agrodome - sheep and other animal farming, a core NZ industry; Te Puia - Maori cultural centre and geothermal hot springs. Recommended.
