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.
