Waitomo & Rotorua Geothermal Day Tour With Polynesian Spa Ex Auckland Return

 

Discover underground wonders and fascinating Māori culture and immerse yourself in natural geothermal hot springs on a full day tour to Waitomo and Rotorua.

This spectacular tour takes in several of New Zealand’s most popular tourist attractions. Set off from Auckland on board our deluxe coach and travel south through towns steeped in rich pioneering history.

Visit the breathtaking cave formations at Waitomo Glowworm Caves and marvel at stalactites, stalagmites and twinkling glowworms during a 45-minute guided tour. The highlight of your Waitomo Caves tour is a boat ride along an underground river through the stunning Glowworm Grotto - as you glide along in silence you’ll see galaxies of glowworms shining in the darkness all around you.

After your Waitomo experience, continue to Rotorua: the cultural melting pot of New Zealand, located inside the rim of a volcanic crater and home to an awesome array of geothermal activity.

Visit the popular Polynesian Spa and take a relaxing dip in the deluxe spa pool, enjoying amazing views over Lake Rotorua as you soak in the naturally heated mineral waters.

After your Polynesian Spa visit, visit Te Puia, where you will be welcomed onto the marae (Māori meeting house) for a cultural performance including traditional and modern Māori song and dance, including poi dance, stick games and the haka (war dance).

You’ll also see master woodcarvers and weavers at work at the Māori Arts and Crafts Institute, before entering the spectacular Whakarewarewa Thermal Valley to experience Rotorua’s famous geothermal activity in all its glory. Marvel at the geysers, fumaroles and bubbling mud pools.

At the end of your Te Puia tour, board the coach to return to Auckland, arriving in the evening.

    Long day but well worth it

    What a brilliant trip would recommend to everyone, some amazing sites and experiences. It is a long day but well worth it and the lunch and snacks provided were excellent. Our driver Rachel was brilliant and made the long drive much easier. Would recommend to everyone

    Great experiences but rushed for time

    The coach driver was fantastic though it was confusing changing over from one guide to the next at each stop as he stayed with the bus, traffic delayed us by an hour cutting our experiences in Rotorua shorter particularly rushed at Polynesian Spa. Again had a change over to a shuttle for the spa who did not act as a guide neglecting to point out the sites that were highlighted in the itinerary. Would have been amazing if we had the proper time allocated at each venue I'm sure but still maybe having a guide that goes through the day with you instead of changeovers would make the experience better as well
