This was a great tour! I was concerned it would be too long, but the time flew by. The visit to the caves was fabulous. The caves were beautiful and the glowworms breathtaking. I've been to other glowworm caves, but this was by far the best. The visit to the agrodome was fun. We watched a sheep shearing and a herding demo by the sheep dog. We also got to feed the sheep. Next was a visit to a Maori village,where we saw a very good show and then onto the geysers, which were at the peak of their eruptions. Along the way we passed beautiful landscapes.
Our guide was very friendly, informative and knowledgeable. He was able to field all the questions hurled at him. The bus was quite comfortable, with WiFi, and even the box lunch provided I chose the chicken and snacks were delicious.
While this tour is a little pricey, you really do get your money's worth. I'd strongly recommend it.

It was a great tour and certainly did not seem like 13 hours. The time went by quickly but we had enough time in each of the destinations and enjoyed each one thoroughly. Would highly recommend it to anybody our tour guide was named Ben and he was very informative and pleasant. The bus even had Wi-Fi
