Great 3 stop tour! Kelly was a great host and very kind to fellow passengers that made him repeat information when they didn't listen the first time. The caves were other worldly! Biggest geyser in southern hemisphere. Hobbiton movie set was a great tour too! Well worth the price! Take a pillow to nap between stops.

Our driver Ron was very knowledgeable and informative which made the tour enjoyable. Overall the tour was good value for money. The buffet lunch at Rotorua is plentiful with a wide variety of good quality tasty food. It is a long day tour but there is plenty to see and do that breaks up the time spent traveling on the bus.

This tour shows all these three must-see places in the best way possible. Our guide/driver Daryl was super in providing information on all these three stops and gently organized all of us in the tour so that we could be on time in all those stops. He is knowledgeable, amiable and a true gentleman. We were very happy and satisfied with this 13 hour tour.

Our guide Darryl ( hope spelling his name correct) was the most efficient guide I have ever seen. We covered three major points in a day and he explained everything so well that we still keep on thinking about the trip. I am going to recommend about this to my friends and family. One of the Best guided trip!
