5 Star Tour

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our morning with Geoff. He is a very friendly and knowledgable tour guide and we could both happily listen to him speak about New Zealand all day long. Wai-O-Tapu is a MUST DO trip for anyone traveling through Rotorua. We contemplated using the Intercity busses however they involve a rediculously long walk when you get there so definitely avoid! The other tour companies seem very poor value for money considering what you get with Arden Hybrid Tours. It was our first time using ‘Book Me’ and we were nervous but fear not as it proved to be very reliable and easy and we will continue to use it in New Zealand. My only regret is that we don’t have longer in Rotorua as I would have loved to have joined Geoff again for another one of his tours. Thank you again Geoff!

Very interesting! Amazing nature!

I had a great day and saw so much interesting things! My driver Geoff was very friendly and gave us so much information about New Zealand. He also knew the best times when to arrive and leave the Wai-O-Tapu wonderland, so absolutely highly recommended! Thank you so much!
