Amazing sights
, Mar 2020
The tour was basically transfer to n from our hotel n between the sites, which was perfect for us as we like going at our own pace. Our driver Akira was very helpful n stopped at a couple spots of interest on the way for us to take pictures.

This was a GREAT tour. Keith was more than amazing pointing out things on the drive, showing us cool places that weren’t exactly outlined in the tour as we had some extra time. You can tell he really loves his job and cares about the people he is carrying around. THANK YOU! This was probably one of the best tours I’ve done in NZ so far.
Great thermal park day!

Definitely recommend this tour with thermal land shuttle company. The driver Keith was amazing and very knowledgeable. Perfect tour if you want to combine these two parks in the same day.

I would definitely recommend this tour. The tour guide knows his history of Rotorua. The sites are just amazing and the tour gives you plenty of time to roam around at your own pace. Pick up and drop off to where you are staying also was a bonus.

Kia ora, Thank you for your time to write this brilliant review. We are super lucky to have the tour guides we do. We do aim for the experience to be relaxed where you are not rushed around so you can really soak it all in and enjoy the unique landscape we visit. Thanks
