    Vibrant place to visit

    We were delighted to be greeted by our cheerful double decker bus driver and guide . He has a great knowledge of Rotorua and its culture. He provided stories and information about the Maori who were there before the Europeans. The tour was great and we enjoyed the varieties of places we visited. We do recommend it to any one new to Rotorua.

    A good starting point

    If you're trying to work out what to see or where to go in Rotorua then this little tour is for you. It goes to a wide range of places of interest with a commentary along the way giving you some interesting facts. The one thing I was put off by was there were no stopping points for photos. Yes you can hop off at certain places and pickup the next bus but if you can't get back to the places yourself you miss out on photo opportunities.
