“Excellent tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

My wife and I spent a very interesting 2 hours on the Waihi Gold Tour. Our guide, Norm, was interesting and knowledgable about all things mining. Access was gained to areas that are normally out of bounds. Worth the cost

“Good value for money and a very knowledgeable guide”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2011

Its more of a van tour rather than a bus tour. Good views all around and we learnt a lot of stuff about gold mining. Nice to see some gold mining ruins of the past era. Would highly recommend. We went when it was raining the whole time and still had fun, now that says a lot, doesn't it?
