Waitomo & Rotorua Full Day Tour With Skyline Gondola Ex Auckland Return

 

Join us for an incredible journey deep into the heart of the North Island, experiencing New Zealand’s incredible natural scenery and Māori culture.

This full day tour aboard our deluxe coach will take you to the magnificent geothermal regions of Waitomo and Rotorua for a truly remarkable day out.

During the scenic drive south from Auckland you will journey through New Zealand’s largest farming region, past towns steeped in early pioneering history.

On arrival at Waitomo, you’ll enjoy a 45-minute tour of the famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves. See these amazing limestone caves with their stalagmites and stalactites, and drift in a boat through the amazing Glowworm Grotto as you gaze at the thousands of glowworms above you.

After your Waitomo Caves tour, continue south to Rotorua. Located inside the rim of a volcano crater, Rotorua is home to a vast array of geothermal activity and is the cultural melting pot of New Zealand. See some of its historic landmarks like the Government Gardens, the iconic Tudor-style museum and the Blue Baths on your way through town.

Next, take in the spectacular panoramic views of Lake Rotorua with a trip on the Skyline Gondola. Drink in the views over the city and Lake Rotorua as the gondola carries you 487 metres above sea level up the side of Mt Ngongotaha.

At Te Puia, New Zealand’s foremost cultural venue, you’ll be welcomed into the marae (Māori meeting house) for a traditional Māori concert with song, dance and the fearsome haka (war dance).

Inside the Māori Arts & Crafts Institute, you'll see artists at work creating traditional wood carvings and weaving. The Whakarewarewa Thermal Valley is home to the famous Pohutu geyser, as well as fumaroles, and boiling mud pools.

At the end of your Te Puia experience, step back on board for the return coach journey to Auckland.

Our compliments on an exceptional trip, especially to Ben the driver- great guy. We enjoyed the entire trip and got more out of it than expected. Great value for money and we thank you profoundly for a brilliant snapshot insight into NZ and Maori cultural highlights.

    comfortable and nice tour

    There are so many people when I departure, and after I relized is_ in bookme site there are 3 of rotorua oneday tour. I went skyline gondola but othter is going agrodome ane the other is goto polinesian spa. We share cosy and free wifi and have a toliet_ bus, sometimes touring together and sometimes sepaeratly go around. I think there is no-one dislike this tour. 와이토모동굴을 당일치기로 다녀올 수 있는 투어 중 하나. 나머지 일정은 같고 아그로돔, 곤돌라, 폴리네시안 스파만 옵션이 달라졌는데 1시간이라도 로토루아 경관을 높이서 보고싶어 곤돌라에 다녀왔다. 따로 루지권을 저렴하게 구입해서 투어 중에 루지까지 추가로 하면 더 좋을듯하다. 오전 오후 간식이랑 점심을 주는데 다 맛있다. 후기가 좋은데 큰 몫을 하는듯. 그리고 버스타고 가면서 유쾌하신 기사 아저씨가 끊임없이 주변경관을 소개해준다. 영어듣기공부를 10시간 정도 한 느낌... 여튼 차가 없는 여행자들에게 강력추천. 마지막에 오클랜드시티로 안돌아오고 로토루아에 남아있을 수 있다.
