We really enjoyed all aspects of this trip. Seeing the lifestyle in the village and spending time in the spa was relaxing. So relaxing I wish we could have spent for time there.

Best tour of our 30 day trip
February 22, 2020
This tour was a wonderful relaxed experience. Natalie anticipated our every need on this comprehensive excursion to Rotorua. Whakarewarewa including the guide, hot springs, geysers, and show are not to be missed. Lunch was excellent. The very clean Polynesian Spa had a fantastic view, great soaking pools, water fountains, restrooms, showers, and changing facilities. Natalie gave us all a bottle of water to stay hydrated and coin for the small secure lockers to safely store our belongings.

Fantastic Tour of Maori Thermal Village & Spa
December 02, 2019
Booked this excursion for Nov. 9. In a very pleasant voice, our guide shared many details of the region. Enjoyed our tour of the living Maori thermal village, best corn ever cooked in hot pools, was lucky to see geysers erupting but they usually do every hour or so, very enjoyable Maori show. Then on to lunch, then relaxing in geothermal hot springs at Polynesian spa. Despite sulfur smell in this area, which is to be expected, this was a fantastic trip to a very interesting area & it was a fun, memorable day.

Fantastic day. Going to the Maori village was amazing. great to see how they live their everyday lives. Lunch was perfect! Good selection and also desserts! The Polynesian Spa was good (wish it was a cooler day when we went) but still great. Our tour guide was amazing.

This is my second time doing this tour. I highly recommend it when considering what to do while in port. Do not let the price tag persuade you - it is worth every penny

Interesting Thermal Valley Tour
March 21, 2019
We had a wonderful guide and really enjoyed this tour through the countryside was just gorgeous. The Maori village and cultural performance was a highlight, although it was very hot standing in the sun for over an hour. The lunch provided at the hotel was delicious. The thermal spa wasn't as exotic as we had imagined, but we each received a token to store our belongs, and we enjoyed trying out the different temperature pools. Our stop at a lovely Kiwi farm and gift stop was a pleasant surprise.

Organised tour with great guides. Whilst I truly enjoyed tour and excellent lunch felt time at the Thermal Village was not long enough. More to see than had time for. However what you do see is fantastic and the guide was friendly and passionate about his life and sharing his family experiences and way of life. Polynesian Spar experience was lovely but disappointed it was not in a more environmentally natural setting. Centre had a variety of pools to choose from, gift shop and food area. Only rating as good due to lack of time at village.
Its was good.

Tour hosts had some good information on the area, and about immigration to New Zealand.

Maori history and a lot of hot steam.

Loved Maori history and culture amidst the steaming pools and geysers. Disappointed I could not get closer to the Pohatu Geyser. Lunch was more than tasty followed by leisurely dips in hot pools beside a gorgeous lake.
