Te Puia, Rotorua Reviews

  • All in one! Covering geysers, mud pool, kiwi bird, Maori performance and culture. If short of time, this is definitely a good option instead of visiting all above individually. Every hour tour guide will start at the hour. This included I the entrance fee. Our tour GUIDE PATRICK very knowledgeable and humour. The only minus point I would say, too small or little for a big entrance fee.

  • Fantastic! Spectacular geothermal features, knowledgeable & jovial staff, unique cultural experiences. Money goes to support the local Maori and their educational and culture preservation mission. See a geyser and traditional woodcarving & weaving all at once. Our guide, called Rob, was excellent in his blend of knowledge and humor. Free guided tours available at the top of every hour are recommended.

  • The whole day&night experience is nice to live rotorua culture. It is a shame that we did not have more time to visit the place at our own pace (except than with the guide) to fully enjoy the park. Also, despite the great efforts from the crew, we can feel they did that the whole summer and that they are tired of it. But otherwise, nice people, very good food, interesting visit and still a good time.

  • Really enjoyed this place. Lots of Natural and Cultural things to see. The Mud pools and Geysers sort of speak for themselves. There is a Kiwi house with two young animals to see. The Maori culture and crafts are well demonstrated within some wonderful new buildings. worth a visit.

  • Probably the biggest attraction in Rotorua. The geyser is simply awe inspiring. Our guide Shane was able to bridge between the mind set of the visitors and the Maori to give a thoughtful interpretation of Maori experience. We spent a long time in the Kiwi House in semi darkness observing this fascinating creature. The students in the craft school were friendly and ready to engage with visitors. We spent more than half a day just soaking up the atmosphere. A visit is a must, if you are in Rotorua.
