“A REAL ADVENTURE DAY OUT - GO FOR IT”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

Highly recommend this day out with John whose cheerful and friendly presence guided us through the days activities. The horse trek was spectatular, the kayaking was an easy
peaceful glide over the lake followed by a delicious picnic lunch. The afternoons activities included a drive in 4x4 across the farmland, boat trip over Lake Tarawera to experience hot water beach and then a relaxing half hour sitting in the hot water pool.
The day was not yet finished after returning across the lake and back to Rotorua by road we ended up in the Pub with John for a friendly farewell drink. Some day out and with pick up and drop off at your Rotorua accommodation fantastic value for money.

“Awesome!!”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

Amazing daytour, you got it all in one day, but still you don't feel like rushing.
Beautiful sceneries, specially when you are on a horseback up in the hills having the lakes under.. Enjoyed also driving at the lake and jumping in to the water in the middle :) and perfect icing on top is the hot pool, after that you feel so relaxed. One word for the day, awesome!!

“Wicked tour, so much fun and really cheap. Gotta do it!”
Reviewed February 14, 2012

The day was excellent! We got picked up and dropped off from our accommodation, had a full on action packed day of horse riding, kayaking, swimming and boating. We loved the boat ride and we were taken to a natural hot pool in the bush that we had all to ourselves! Really reasonably priced for all the cool stuff you get to do. If you want to see and experience Rotorua's lakes and farms this is perfect.
