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

Reviewer: Cherlyn Johnson
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.

4 StarsIts was good.March 13, 2019
