    Awesome experience & fantastic guides (Nat & Jessie) .
    I've been wanting to do this for a few years, so decided today was the day to do it.
    Totally recommend doing this, & looking back on my GoPro footage, I'm glad I got upside down 🤘

    First, this is a loooong day. Two hours at each of the three stops and six hours in a very comfortable van. Prior to leaving, I was most excited for the geyser, followed by Waitomo Caves and then Hobbiton. It turned out to be the opposite. Hobbiton was super cool. The detail is amazing. The Caves were cool but I could have skipped the geyser other than the great lunch.

    had a wonderful day. Waitomo caves are interesting, the glow worms cave structure was explained by the local guide and it's really beautiful. Te Puia was also suprising. Because of COVID restrictions, we coudn't enjoy the buffet, neither the Maori performance, but the guide gave us other tracks around Rotorua. Cheeky Kiwi is reliable and safe. Michael was our guide and was very attentive, good driver, kind, respectful, informative, and a good photographer! I really appreciated and recommend the company.

    Grant did a Fabulous job of organizing the day so that everyone got the most of what they wanted to experience. I would highly recommend the geothermal park as it was fascinating and Grant gave us a personal tour. The gondola was a relaxing end to the day in Rotorua. It is a long day but well worth the trip. Exceptional company!

    The guides were very friendly, funny and informative and the kayaking was so fun. The glow worms were amazing to see and kayaking under the stars was sooooo peaceful. So happy, 10/10

    Gary Stickler, our guide, was most informative and helpful...answering a myriad of questions. The drive was delightful as we passed from Tauranga to Rotorua, w/ great stops along the way.

    Really exceeded my expectations! So cool to see Rotorua from above and really surreal being able to land and walk around on Mt Tarawera. Sam was really knowledgeable and has some fun facts about Rotorua and its surrounding areas.

    Such a wonderful experience - Runs so smoothly and is really well managed. Jesse and Natalie were absolutely fabulous - Funny, friendly, knowledgeable & experienced. Everything you want in a guide. The course itself was great and very manageable for all fitness levels. To top it all off, they have a fabulous conservation story and part of the ticket price goes into helping NZ native wildlife in this beautiful forest. Highly recommend giving this experience a go - You won't be disappointed!

    Jafa here, 24th January was my birthday and decided to spend time in Rotorua for the day. It was a bloody hot day but I really enjoyed exploring both Waiotapu Thermal Wonderland and Te Puia which came with free buffet lunch... yum yum!! Then, we did brief Rotoroa Lake and City tour but ended up staying at a park for over an hour as another driver who was meeting us at Matamata was held up on another tour.

    With regard to the seats in bus, the one that took us from Auckland to Hobbiton stopover I sat in the single seat chair and found it really uncomfortable. It wasn't wide enough to fit in and lock my seat belt in. :( At a quick stop before Hobbiton, I asked to move over to front seat (next to driver) and was so relieved and lucky to sit there most of the trip except from Matamata to Auckland. Front seat was unavailable, so I sat at the back and realised they were large seats, they appeared to be wider than seats in front of me? I was not complaining :-)

    Lastly, we had different drivers throughout the day and each of those drivers took care of us which really made our day, thank you team! :-)

    The guy we had was awesome. Very chill and relaxed dude who cracked a couple of jokes with us. Loved this trip around the lake and learned a little bit of history and facts around the lake. Loved the spins and how fast we were going. Would be super keen to come back.

    Keep up the awesome work guys!
