Andrew met us at the end of the pier and whisked us off for a 6.5 hour tour of the area. Highlights included the redwood forest, the town of Rotarua, the Maori inhabited village of Waku, lunch in a very nice hotel, a trip to a kiwi orchard and of course Andrew's commentary which was informative and interesting. The coach was a nice 15 passenger Mercedes and lunch was fine. Well worth the money.

This tour met us at the end of the wharf from our cruise ship, ready, organised and on time. We were given an upgrade which included a free lunch and extra time because our original tour only had 3 participants. So we were joined with some other customers to make a slightly bigger group. Brand new van with driver Pat took us on a city tour then to the Geothermal area where our Maori guide took us around. It was very informative and finished with a singing and dancing performance. Our group split, some to do their thermal mud spa experience whilst Pat drove the group of 3 around, stopping at interesting sights as well as a short walk through a redwood forest...most enjoyable. The freshly washed spa participants joined up with us again for the sit down lunch after which we headed to the kiwifruit farm. All in all a great day. So thank you again Pat and New Zealand Discovery Tours for kindness and the most refreshing manner in which you do business. Highly recommended and tremendous value for money!

This was an excellent excursion . Our Maori guide showed us how they they live among the hot springs and geysers and use the waters to cook their food and bathing. I would highly recommend this tour.
