We took this tour as a part of our Royal Caribbean cruise. The guides were very knowledgeable and funny. The boat was a blast. My wife and daughter had a great time even though my wife's hand prints are probably permanently crimped into the boats handrail.

It's not cheap but I'd still recommend this. Staff were all excellent and everything is well run and organised. The hot springs are gorgeous but I'd hate to be there if it was busy (the area is quite small). Great way to see the area.

Hi there, Thank you for your review. We to think the Manupirua Hot pools in Lake Rotoiti are quite special. Also you can only get there by boat so no roads here. Our price of 125.00 does include the entry to the pools. So 90 minutes of jet boating as well as the soak in the natural pools. Some people say we are to cheap :) but we try and keep our prices down so that we are affordable for all. I really thank you for taking the time to review. cheers Fiona
