Perfect for travelers with limited time

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour, and would definitely do it again. It is a long tour-- the coach bus left at 730am, and it didn't return to Auckland until 8pm--but the coach bus was comfortable, the lunch and snacks were adequate and tasty, and the guide, Jamie, was entertaining and has a phenomenal voice. We didn't have to wait at each of the sites: Waitomo, Agrodome, and Te Puia, and it was so well-organised that I am amazed how much we have accomplished in just 1 day! Thanks bookme for the arrangement and GreatSight for the wonderful tour!!!

Great Day trip

It was an even more wonderful trip than I had expected..! I enjoyed not only Waitomo cave but also many other things like visiting farm and HAKA performance. I recommend this tour especially for the person who first visit to Auckland ;)

Out of the world!

To begin with, the bus journey covers a total of 650+ kms and thanks to our well informed coach driver “Rachael”, kept us occupied with him continuous commentry (really ongoing for hours) about everything we passed, kept us busy. The glow worms were surreal, some chinese fellow tourists just couldn’t keep their mouth shut, but other than that it was simply superb. Water and snacks are provided. The Mauri cultural show is lovely. If u wanna buy green stones/jade momentos, Rotarua souvenir shop is a good place to buy.

Excellent, well organized tour

I was very impressed with the quality of the bus and the knowledge of the driver. He relayed much information about the countryside as we drove to our destination. We went to the caves first, then the Agrodome farm, then Rotora. We had a lot of territory to cover, but the tours were well organized. I think it was worth the time and money. I am glad that I did the tour and would do it again.

Great tour, flavours of NZ

The tour is well organized; everything is on-time (except for other tourists!) and well thought out, including: the snacks, meals and water, advice for where to find toilets at the sites, drop-off and pick-up locations and times, etc. Driver was professional and knowledgeable. The longest stretches of driving were 3 hours, but the motor coach is comfortable and clean. Was nice to see the NZ countryside on the way to the sites: Waitomo Caves - a truly unique, natural experience; Agrodome - sheep and other animal farming, a core NZ industry; Te Puia - Maori cultural centre and geothermal hot springs. Recommended.
