This tour was one of the highlights of our travels through New Zealand and the credit has to go to our excellent guide, Bronwyn. She did a great job guiding us to the essential Rotorua highlights and efficiently using our time there. The sights were all great to see but I think the best part of this tour was that Bron was able to give me some insight into the character of the New Zealand people themselves and how it was shaped by their history and culture.
We had a wonderful day with Paul Marston at the wheel of our bus. He livened the sights with his own special brand of commentary from the time we pulled away from the dock until our return several hours later.
Had an amazing day at Rotorua with our guide Paul who was very knowledgeable. On the way there we visited a kiwi farm which was very interesting. At Rotorua the mud pools and geysers were spectacular and we thoroughly enjoyed the visit to the workshops together with the Maori culture show. Unfortunately there was insufficient time to look round the excellent gift shop. All in all a great day out.
This was a small group tour of Rotorua with direct pick-up from our ship in Tauranga. The guide was knowledgeable and fun, and with the activities undertaken and the amazing sights encountered, we had a most enjoyable day. This tour is highly recommended. Small intimate groups are always better then big bus tours.
Great tour and great guide. He went out of his way to show us his part of NZ and we were impressed lots of good information and good driver too! We loved the landscapes androstenedione particularly our guide's commentary.
Sixteen of us from Singapore had booked a 1-day Rotorua tour with Tauranga Tasting Tours and Charters. Paul, the proprietor, was our driver and coach. His long years of experience showed. As we drove by the beach road of Tauranga, he could even tell us the price increases of several of the residential properties! And because of his vast knowledge that he wanted to share, he didn't tolerate interruptions to his presentations. The lakeside cafe he drove us to for a late lunch was pleasant.
This was a great day. We met our tour guide Rick, at the cruise port. The tour had a total of 7 people, all of us from the same ship. Rick was a gracious, knowledgable and fun guide. He made the area come alive with its historical and current issues. The village and geothermal spring was a highlight
