    Early morning pickup at hotels are a great benefit but be on time....one was almost left behind for being 5 minutes late--it's tight for time so pickups have to be timely since 2 of the sights have specific times. We loved all 3. The glow worm was most amazing and Hobbiton was perfect and the lunch at the Rotorua geyser area was truly superb with local Maori food prep. Comfy bus was appreciated.

    had a wonderful day. Waitomo caves are interesting, the glow worms cave structure was explained by the local guide and it's really beautiful. Te Puia was also suprising. Because of COVID restrictions, we coudn't enjoy the buffet, neither the Maori performance, but the guide gave us other tracks around Rotorua. Cheeky Kiwi is reliable and safe. Michael was our guide and was very attentive, good driver, kind, respectful, informative, and a good photographer! I really appreciated and recommend the company.

    What an amazing experience me and my family had today!! Our guides Harry and Stacey where beyond Amazing!! We decided to do this adventure as my husband got some medical news that changed our lives forever, so we decided to get out there and make the most of life as a family with the time we have left. So thank you both Harry and Stacey for making our experience today a very memorable one!!! My family will cherish this forever!!

    Really exceeded my expectations! So cool to see Rotorua from above and really surreal being able to land and walk around on Mt Tarawera. Sam was really knowledgeable and has some fun facts about Rotorua and its surrounding areas.

    Grant did a Fabulous job of organizing the day so that everyone got the most of what they wanted to experience. I would highly recommend the geothermal park as it was fascinating and Grant gave us a personal tour. The gondola was a relaxing end to the day in Rotorua. It is a long day but well worth the trip. Exceptional company!

    We took our two daughters, 7 and 11. It was a magical experience. The kayaking was not difficult and the glow worms were just stunning. Our guide, Jess, was just lovely.

    Gary Stickler, our guide, was most informative and helpful...answering a myriad of questions. The drive was delightful as we passed from Tauranga to Rotorua, w/ great stops along the way.

    The guy we had was awesome. Very chill and relaxed dude who cracked a couple of jokes with us. Loved this trip around the lake and learned a little bit of history and facts around the lake. Loved the spins and how fast we were going. Would be super keen to come back.

    Keep up the awesome work guys!

    Simon was early to pick us up at our hotel and over all a total blast to ride with. Lots of great information, but didn't talk the entire time. Very attentive to breaks and drink/food needs. The springs and mud bath are stunning and the spa is extremely relaxing.

    Despite the wet weather, we had fun ziplining and immersing ourselves in the forest. Hopefully, there will be more birds next time.

    Thanks to Matt and Paul for being awesome tour guides as well! 😊

    Jafa here, 24th January was my birthday and decided to spend time in Rotorua for the day. It was a bloody hot day but I really enjoyed exploring both Waiotapu Thermal Wonderland and Te Puia which came with free buffet lunch... yum yum!! Then, we did brief Rotoroa Lake and City tour but ended up staying at a park for over an hour as another driver who was meeting us at Matamata was held up on another tour.

    With regard to the seats in bus, the one that took us from Auckland to Hobbiton stopover I sat in the single seat chair and found it really uncomfortable. It wasn't wide enough to fit in and lock my seat belt in. :( At a quick stop before Hobbiton, I asked to move over to front seat (next to driver) and was so relieved and lucky to sit there most of the trip except from Matamata to Auckland. Front seat was unavailable, so I sat at the back and realised they were large seats, they appeared to be wider than seats in front of me? I was not complaining :-)

    Lastly, we had different drivers throughout the day and each of those drivers took care of us which really made our day, thank you team! :-)
