Not to be missed

This place is absolutely amazing! I visited with a group of four fellow PhD students, and it made our experience in Rotorua truly unforgettable. Discovering more about New Zealand and Maori culture was incredible. The guided tour was a standout feature, as our guide, Daniel, spoke with such passion. I loved the experience and getting to know this beautiful culture. I have immense respect for the Maori people and hope their lifestyle, culture, and values continue to flourish. Thank you for everything. Additionally, we witnessed a breathtaking geyser eruption. Watching the Haka was also a stunning and exhilarating experience. I highly recommend this visit!
