This was truly a wonderful experience! My husband and I really liked the Glow worm caves tour and the entire tour at the Maori Cultural Arts center. When you think about how Mother Nature creates these special places for us to see is pretty amazing. The boat ride in the cave while being steered in the dark by an employee under the glow worms was like you were in another world. This is definitely a must see when visiting NZ! Racheal our driver was the highlight! She was very knowledgeable about the history of NZ and shared her experiences living there. Racheal kept us entertained throughout the entire ride. By far this was one of the best tours I have ever been on. I highly suggest booking this tour!!

Our driver/guide was Rachael, and we were very entertained by the informative and amusing dialogue along the way. The glowworm cave was unbelievable, and the geysers and the geothermal mud pits are a must see for New Zealand. We also did the Agrodome, and the sheep sheering and rounding up were great. I do wish we had more time at each site rather than such a rush that we didn't even have time to look at the gift shops. Overall, we truly enjoyed this tour, and recommend it to anyone, including families with kids who are at least grade school age.
