I had a great time touring Wai o Tapu with Henry despite the heavy rain. Very knowledgeable, warm, and friendly, Henry planned an early morning start which allowed us to have the beautiful park practically all to ourselves, without the crowds. What a treat! I would definitely do his tour again and recommend it to friends!

We and 2 other couples were met at the pier. We wanted to see the most dramatic thermo pools and headed out to Wai-O-Tapu. Though we missed the geyser it was still a fabulous experience. Matt was very knowledgeable as we walked us around the various pools he explained their formation and different colors. Just magnificent. The mud pools were... More

I took a day trip with this company to the Thermal Wonderland, an area of incredible thermal activity. We were only 3 on the trip and our guide was extremely knowledgeable. With such a small group it was easy to get extra attention and information about this amazing area. Excellent value for money.

We used the company for transport to the airport and to attractions around Rotorua over a couple of days. The drivers were very friendly and hospitable. They gave us a lot of good advice on what to do and see, and willingly shared their insight and local information. The vans turned up on time and we found Grumpy's a great... More

We spent a few days in Rotorua recently and used Grumpy's a couple of times. Matt who was our guide and driver, he was not only very friendly and hospitable, but also very well informed about the terrain, he not only took us to a awesome trip to Wai-O-Tapu, also had a wonderful interaction with my 9 year old daughter,...

Grumpy's is seriously awesome. They make everything very easy. No stress at all. The drivers are very informative and friendly. I wish Grumpy's existed all over NZ! Allan is the best!

We used grumpy's both days of our two day trip to Rotorua after having them recommended both while booking our trip to rotorua, and by our hotel. We were not at all disappointed, we met two different drivers across the both days and both were absolutely lovely. The drivers were happy to share their knowledge of the area and to... More

Used Grumpy's for a tour of Wai-O-Tapu and have to say I loved every minute of it. Matt (our driver) was both enthusiastic and informative and seemed to really love strutting his stuff. COuld recommed Grumpy's highly enough. Great prices/rates as well. Thanks!!

We only spent a few days in Rotorua, but we used Grumpy's a number of times since we did not rent a car. Our drivers were always very friendly, and the price was a great deal. We had to take a regular cab for one short trip, and it was twice the cost of the exact trip taken earlier with... More

We had one full day in Rotorua, and wanted to see some of the thermal sights. We didn't have a car, so booked a half day tour with Grumpy's, and were very pleased that we had. We were picked up from our motel by Grumpy himself, and as others had cancelled due to the (very light!) rain, we were the... More
