Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the Waitomo Caves and Rotorua Day Trip from Auckland submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
a long drive. however the coach is very comfy so no problem at all. the driver is very good, non-stop commentary except on return journey when most people have gone to sleep.
the waitomo caves is spectacular, been to the glow worm cave in australlia good coast. the waitomo caves have a lot more glow worms, and the boat ride is awesome.
The farm is ok but is more of a show piece, not the authentic farm we expect. but ok, another experience.
the maori village is fun too. the hot spring jet is ok too.
the whole trip is very nicely organised.
The Rotorua area is worth for a longer stay with the hotels with spas, the cable car and luge ride down. next time will spend more time in that area.
will recommend for those who do not drive around NZ
A lot of time on the bus but this tour covered all the highlights of the New Zealand North island except wine tasting. Each of the stops was excellent. Highly recommend this bargain.Reviewed by: Fred, March 2013
This was an excellent tour. The day was very long, but we covered a lot of ground all of the stops were well done.
In particular, the Glow Worm caves were exceptional. At one point there were about 20 tourists in a boat in the dark cave and all of us were completely spellbound looking at the glow worms which resembled a night sky which was fully of constellations of stars.
We'll organized and very interestingReviewed by: William R M, February 2013
This was a very educational and scenic experience to see and learn about some of the many fascinating and unusual geological effects of New Zealand, the local aboriginal culture, thermal hot springs, travel through a glow worm cave, visit a working sheep farm and enjoy a nice lunch along the way.
Its a very long day, but it goes quickly.
Wonderful Tour . the Tour Guide was really excellent. and the attractions were beautiful.Reviewed by: Eliezer I, January 2013
this tour was a must do for me and my partner going to NZ, the caves were amazing with all the formed structures and getting down to the glowworm caves was defenitely once in a lifetime experience, the agridome is great for animal lovers, and rotorua was great with the mudpools and geysers :)Reviewed by: Brock S, January 2013
From the pick up from the hotel until the end of the day it was an excellent tour. The driver is very knowledgeable about the area. The highlight of the tour were the Waitomo caves, the Rotorua with the welcome presentation and the bubbling mud and eruption.Reviewed by: Shirley, January 2013
