Awesome tour and fantastic guide. Even though it was just the four of us, Josh took us out on the tour. The kids got to "drive" out on the lake while Josh drank his coffee courtesy of a stop at BP along the way for refreshments, not a standard part of the tour! Josh was a great guide, knew his stuff and was just great to chat to on the trip. We had a really good time and the kids loved it. Great thing to do if you have a few hours in Rotorua. Really appreciate that we were able to go even with so few of us.

We had a great time on our Tarawera and Lakes tour. Josh was awesome as our guide - he was very entertaining and knew a lot about the area. Thanks for a great afternoon, well worth it. A really great family activity.

Josh has been described as many things, but modest is not normally one of them! So glad you enjoyed your time with us. Nga Mihi!

A fun, informative experience. Loved the transitions from road to lake and our tour guide kept us thoroughly entertained. Was a great activity to rest the legs after all the walking I did during the previous days excursion.
