Very good service

This tour is perfect for those who don't have neither much time nor a large budget but don't want to lose the opportunity of visiting one of the most famous tourist spots in New Zealand. A fair price for the service. Comfortable coach, enthusiastic, funny and well-informed drive. The sandwiches included have good quality and flavour; and you always will have a bottle of water during the tour. Unfortunatelly, the visits to the spots are not so long, because there is much to see in each place.

Best Day Trip from Auckland

If you have only one day in hand and you wish to see the glow worm caves and the geysers then this is the perfect day trip for you. Loved the whole experience. Saw the magical presence of glow worms at the Waitomo caves, met some adorable farm animals at Agrodome and then saw the majestic geysers and the Maori Cultural experience at Te Puia... All in all a fun day around for all! Our driver/guide Rachel was amazing and gave us a lot of info about NZ, the Maori legends and gave insights about the rivers, forests and mountains during our journey. Thanks Gray Line Tours and Great Sights for the wonderful time!

Superb One Day Trip

Although the weather was not so friendly from the beginning, we could still do all the activity very well. The food was also great and tasty. Thank you, Aotearoa

沒有最差只有更差the worst ever

時間安排差,有景點沒有去直接就跳過也不解釋。午餐安排都一團糟,逼素食者吃肉!司機就只是司機揸車,導遊司機什麼都不做,懶到一個點。回程變了背包客巴士,去兩個站接客接到滿坐才返奧克蘭,浪費時間,巴士又逼又臭,職員連安排也懶得。貼錢買難受,巴士又污糟! The driver and the tour guide were heartless and unprofessional and the laziest ones ever!They skipped one of the itinaries without any explanation. Everything was a chaos,meal, admission tickets etc.nothing could be worse than that! On the way back to auckland it was like a coach from hell, they picked up some more passengers and it was a nightmare. Super disappointed! Wasted a lot of time for picking up and waiting!complimentary hotel pick up and drop off was a lie!!
