I was so lucky to have Kevin as my guide and driver in the Rotorua, Taupo tour. He was such a resourceful person who knew the area pretty well. He even brought me to some scenic spots where only the locals knew. Not only that, Kevin was a multi-talented person. He has involved in various industries such as farming, forestry,... More

Martin met us at the cruise ship terminal and was a delightful, well informed and very attentive guide. I appreciated that, despite the persistent... More

Tim's Rotorua in a Day Tour was an easy way to see the major highlights of Rotorua. He arrived promptly for pick up and has the timing of each location down to a science, which makes for an efficient day. This is a good tour for those with that want to maximize limited time in Rotorua.

We are so glad that we extended our Rotoroa day trip another day, as we had the opportunity to visit Taupo sites, which is even better than Rotoroa.
