My husband and I booked the morning Wai-O-Tapu tour and were fortunate to be the only ones booked on this particular day. Richard arrived several minutes before our scheduled pickup time and offered to take us on some additional stops since this was our first time in Rotorua. He provided great tips along the way that helped us enjoy our experience even more. Richard was very friendly and knowledgeable. I HIGHLY recommend Grumpy's.

We used Grumpy’s service twice during our stay in the North Island. One was for a transfer plus tour from Auckland to Rotorua,and the other was trabsfer plus tour from Rotorua to Taupo. Both drivers/ guides Richard & Maria were highly professional, honest, and organised. They arrived on time, gave very good advice on the points to visit, and made us feel safe ss well as well taken care of.
I would gladly recommend their service to travellers to the North Island.

The driver picked me up at my hostel on time. Appreciate his time arrangement to leave enough time to enjoy everything in the Wai-O-Tapu. He is nice to share the information about New Zealand and his story. Super nice. Will order the service next time:)

Richard was so helpful, interesting, and insightful. We had a small group and took several unplanned short stops, which ended up being some of my favorite sights. Wai-o-tapu was as pictured and breathtaking to see in person. HIGHLY recommend.

I'm so happy and lucky that I booked my WaiOTapu tour with Grumpy's. Richard picked me up at the hostel and off we go. I had the bus all to myself! On the way, I mentioned that I wanted to see some sheep so Richard pulled over the road and let me get close to a farm with lots of sheep. Then we head straight to WaiOTapu. He was very knowledgable, accommodating, and friendly. I enjoyed the tour and learned so much. Couldn't be better.

Lucky to be alone in the bus on my trip to Wai-O-Tapu.
I was traveling with company owner-she's a very charmfull person and has
great approach to customers.
I've gained a lot valuable and important knowledge about the Rotorua area.
(always ask the locals)
It was great experience.
Thank You and my recommendation!!!!
