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

  • From the sulphur geysers to the Maori artifacts and the cultural presentations/demonstrations this place is nothing short of amazing. It's truly an enriching experience from the very moment you step foot on the premises and see the massive wood carvings and sculptures through the Maraes and the breathtaking walks around the grounds where you can witness Mother Nature work her wonder and finishing up at the store where you can again view (and potentially purchase if you do wish) even more Maori artifacts and trinkets. A must see when visiting Rotorua/New Zealand.

  • Great place very close to Rotorua to see the natural geysers! Entry price includes access to all locations of the park and tours by friendly local guides. Definitely recommend spending a while here as there is a lot to explore with both the local culture and geyser park - even many walking tracks within the park itself.

  • What a great place to visit. People were very friendly and accommodating of some of the tourists that didn't respect their culture or rules. We saw the welcome and the show inside and would definitely recommend it. We then went to the thermal pools and geysers, and thoroughly enjoyed the spectacular scenery. Highly recommended the visit and please respect the opportunity.

  • We paid for the day and night combo experience and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were generous, kind, and very helpful. The day tour is well worth the excursion out to Te Puia so you can see the geysers in the daylight. Plus you get to see the Kiwi birds and can just walk around and explore the marvelous woods with fascinating geothermal activity. Then at night, the haka and the Hangi dinner were excellent. The staff were all committed to giving us a genuine experience of their culture.

  • Great central place to visit. Very slick and touristy but if that doesn't bother you you'll love this place. Lots of geysers, volcanic activity, culture and history. I love the way they present the Maori people as friendly and hospitable as this is the truth even if its not always what people may observe in Rotorua. Once in the guided tour is free and we'll worth while (just go off-peak).. There's also a good cafe / shop and this massive heated dining area (that has over 24 x 2500watt heaters mounted on the ceiling so I hate to think how much they'd pay for power! They could just turn the heaters off and give everyone a discount!) ... ANYWAY... :-) well worth the visit!
