    Great views of Rotorua and very good food for a buffet. The selection was varied and catered for all tastes. We had a wonderful evening and enjoyed the excellent views of the city which was just as goo after dark.

    Dined with family for a chill day trip. Food was exquisite and staff was accommodating with our requests, particularly PRIYA’s customer service. She found a way to make my father’s request for the shrimps to be heated up and she added garlic butter to make it more delicious.

    Took this as as advised by travel agent. Ride was uneventful. View from top for the town is spectacular if you have not taken gondola ride in Switzerland and seen Alps. We had buffet dinner included. They claimed that seating was allocated depending on if you have paid premium
