Not worth the money

, Dec 2018
I kind of feel disappointed with this trip. No where does it mention that they drop you off at the town centre and you get 3 hours for yourself to explore the town. I would have planned my time better if I knew this in advance as the tour description sounds like you have a day full of planned activities. A miscommunication from the drivers meant that I was told I will be picked up at 4:30pm, but the driver was waiting for me at 4, and hence had to rush a bit through the highlights of rotorua (which wasn’t the second drivers fault). The wait of 3 hours is a waste of time as I did not know what I could do best considering I did not know this in advance. Later, The guide showed me some interesting highlights and dropped me off at the Māori village at 5:30pm, however the receptionist there said the show doesn’t start until 6:30pm, so I had no choice but to waste another full hour and wait. Disappointing. The only highlights were that the wai o tapu visit was beautiful, the drivers were both friendly and the Māori village was good. However you can just do the wai o tapu tour and Māori village for much cheaper - I feel I paid so much money for nothing.

Spend the morning in Waiotapu Geothermal Wonderland.- This was great, I would suggest adding 30 minutes onto this part of the tour to walk all the trails you had to hustle. 1 hour SnapShOt Highlights Tour of Rotorua. Meh, not really worth it. Mitai Maori Experience, so much fun, the food was delicious, the show was informative and entertaining

The visit to the Waiotapu Geothermal...

The visit to the Waiotapu Geothermal Wonderland is awesome. However, the afternoon SnapShOt Highlights Tour of Rotorua tour ends up at 17:30 and had to wait at the Mitai Maori village for 1 hour before the Maori performance and the dinner which started at 18:30. Lucky enough was that I was the only guest in the afternoon tour, but not knowing why, we missed to visit the Sulphur Point.
