Te Puia - Review

Home of the world famous Pohutu geyser, the Four Feathers geyser and Waikite geyser and many more the Te Puia has a lot more to explore. Like the geysers, bubbling mud pools abound in this region, with the mud sometimes as viscous as tar or thin like syrup. Visitors have the option to take a guided tour and listen to the fascinating stories and history of the region or simply start exploring, a map in hand. Also of interest in the Reserve is the Kiwi breeding center and the New Zealand Maori Arts and Crafts Institute.

Te Puia, Rotorua Reviews

  • This is such a great place to visit. We did the tour with a performance and dinner. I highly recommend it for everyone. The people love their culture. For the show they wear full cultural regalia. The dining experience was excellent. I really enjoyed the roast pork and chicken. A beautiful culture indeed.

  • Brilliant performers. My daughter literally almost cried when they sang the love song. Bravo to the fat man! Lovely place too with lots to see. Except for the Kiwi as he must have been asleep when we went.

  • Guys, Te Puia it's a MUST SEE in Rotorua! Geyser is big, thick and impressive. Area around him also very picturesque. Maori art is interesting. They keep there in captivity a couple of kiwis, so you can see them, if they are not inside of their home. If you like, you can have a hangi meal. What else you need? And all this is very close to the main street of Rotorua. About 5-7 min. from Visitors centre in downtown. So, whatever your plans are, go there.

  • Illiterate guides. We, 2 of us, spent close to $400 at Te Puia for tour plus meal. Then had to pay for drinks on top of mediocre, authentic? Maori meal. Told to eat as much as you like but to leave an hour after commencing. So eat and drink quickly. No spout from big geyser, either, a natural event which cannot be timed but which was disappointing. Overall unimpressed. Although the waiters we had were great. I see there is a copy and paste reply from Te Puia. Unsurprising.

  • Excellent. Carla, our guide, was brilliant and showed us lots of things that we would have otherwise missed. We saw a Maury greeting, village, the kiwis house, mud pools and Carla seemed to know just when the geyser was going to blow and it was spectacular. After the tour we were left to explore on our own.
