The highlight of my Rotorua trip

We've been welcomed by the most friendly, informative and amazing guides which walked us thru the most important part of their culture in perfect English stopping for any questions. They made the whole time to be extremely fun. The food was delicious and getting involved in preparing it made it taste even better! I totally recommend this experience!
