Friendly and knowledgeable guide

Our guide Kraig is very knowledgeable and friendly. Small group tour allows our guide to cater more time to the intinary which provides better experience than big tour bus and flexi tour. Will definitely book other tour which cheeckykiwitour

Cool

The tour was really cool, because we had many chances to see the Rotorua lakes. I also liked the people participating at the group and our bus driver was really friendly as well. All in all I really would recommend the tour, but in my opinion we should have spent more time at the lakes and maybe in Rotorua itself. Thank you for the amazing tour!!

Awesome. Highly recommended

We had many options to choose. All were looking good at varied prices. We came across this tour and decided to go with it. We booked for Saturday 23rd Mar Tour operator asked to shift it to 24th as 23 Rd tour oprtation was not confirmed. We agreed. Our tour guide Richard was good. We had wonderful time. After a short in vehicle tour of Rotorua, we went to Wait O Taupo (an awesome wonderland). Our trip wouldn't be successful without waiotaupo visit.

Great Place, One Day Simply Not Enough

Firstly, we’d like to thank Melissa and the Cheeky Kiwi team - they were wonderful. Rotorua will remain in my mind as the one place I never really got to experience properly though - because Waiotapu is so huge that it takes ages to explore!! So as a result, we had to rush through everything else - lunch, seeing the city etc. Overall, it was fantastic, just wish we had more time!
