As you experience one of the best spa pools Rotorua has to offer, Polynesian Spa, you'll have the opportunity to switch off and soak up the minerals and the views in these naturally heated pools overlooking Lake Rotorua.

After reaching new levels of relaxation, we head to Te Puia to learn about Māori culture in New Zealand; you’ll be welcomed on to the marae (Māori meeting house) in the traditional way before experiencing a Māori cultural performance. You’ll also have the opportunity to see master woodcarvers and weavers at work at the Māori Arts and Crafts Institute.

To conclude your Waitomo and Rotorua day trip, head to Whakarewarewa Thermal Valley; marvel at the most famous of Rotorua geysers - Pohutu geyser - as well as mud pools, as you experience the famous Rotorua geothermal activity!

After Te Puia, your coach tour will return to Auckland in the evening.

Long day but well worth it

What a brilliant trip would recommend to everyone, some amazing sites and experiences. It is a long day but well worth it and the lunch and snacks provided were excellent. Our driver Rachel was brilliant and made the long drive much easier. Would recommend to everyone

Great experiences but rushed for time

The coach driver was fantastic though it was confusing changing over from one guide to the next at each stop as he stayed with the bus, traffic delayed us by an hour cutting our experiences in Rotorua shorter particularly rushed at Polynesian Spa. Again had a change over to a shuttle for the spa who did not act as a guide neglecting to point out the sites that were highlighted in the itinerary. Would have been amazing if we had the proper time allocated at each venue I'm sure but still maybe having a guide that goes through the day with you instead of changeovers would make the experience better as well
