Auckland to Rotorua

Will be in Auckland for a couple of days end of March 2013. Would like to visit the Maori village and Hangi dinner as well as the thermal springs area. Most tours do not seem to stay for dinner and also include the glow worm caves (not really interested). We will not have a car. How can we do this?

If you want to include the dinner you really need to stay the night. Take the Intercity coach down in the morning and return next day. Not difficult to organise without a tour.

zhuhai2007, Where does someone catch the Inter City bus? How long a trip is this?

Global-Travel, This looks wonderful and easy. Is the Tamaki Cultural Show and dinner far from town?

Thank you both for replying.
