“Incredible natural beauty and narration”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

A joy to spend the day touring the magnificent sights of this volcanic wonderland. Our guide, Trent, added a glimpse into the Maori culture with his excellent details and anecdotes. He's funny and insightful -- what a treat. As for the sights, up close and personal with the forces of the volcanos -- hot springs, geysers, turquoise mineral pools, bubbling "champagne" pools -- seeing the result of powerful earth is quite humbling. All done with comfort and ease. I highly recommend the full day tour which includes visiting the school of carving and weaving at Te Puia.

“Great day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

I would definately recomand to travel with Elite Adventure. I had a day trip, with Trent in the morning, and he is really funny and knows a lot about New-Zealand, he's a great guide and try to make de journey as confortable as possible. I spent the afternoon with Huru, another guide that has a lot to explain about maori culture and his maori family also.
Thank you guys for this amazing day.
Merci beaucoup!

“Absolutely fantastic. Would definitely recommend it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013 via mobile

I would definitely recommend Elite Adventures. It is ideal for someone who wants to see a lot of different things in a short amount of time. I booked the full day trip and Trent was my guide. We stopped at about 15 different places. Great photo opportunities and you could even swim in the lake if you wanted to.
Great day - Trent was very knowledgeable, lives in the area, very kind and is great at taking photos! I would highly recommend booking the full day trip to get the most out of Rotorua. Not a bad word to say. Best thing I've done in New Zealand so far. Thanks, Trent!

“Rotorua Eco Thermal Small Group Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

booked via 'viator' online. picked up by local FANTASTIC guide (Huru). Highly recommend Huru, his knowledge was fantastic, he showed us a fabulous time around Wai-O-Tapu + mud pools and the Lady Knox Geyser. We had limited time so found this tour good value for the 4.5hrs.
quite a walk around the volcano. Some steep stairs for amazing views but can tailor to suit your needs/fitness

“A great way to see the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

As with many things in NZ the staff makes the difference in making this an outstanding activity. Our guide Trent made the adventure informative, entertaining and enjoyable. His knowledge of the sights, culture and ecology were additions to the spectacular landscape and views. I would highly recommend this as the best way to see the geo thermal phenomenon in this area
