    I enjoyed this tour but felt a bit rushed at some points. I had little interest in the sheep show and would have liked to experience a bit more of the scenery instead.

    The geyser performed dramatically on cue and the porridge pot was amazing. The Agredome must not be missed.

    This was a great tour. The people were knowledgable and very helpfull. As expected we saw a lot and were on and off the bus. the ability to return for a second look on the same pass was good. Definatly a great way to see everything.

    The actual tour was really good, as solid 4 star. The only problem was that the local tour operator had run out of spaces and had emailed Viator to inform me of this problem. Viator completely failed to inform me of this, so I spent a good hour sorting out the tour for the next morning. Not happy having to get up at 6 two days in a row. Otherwise, a great way to get a bearing of Rotorua. Definitely recommend before proceeding with activities in Rotorua - informs you of good or not so good activities to do while there.
