Highlights
What makes this tour special
  1. Get close to Kiwi birds and tuatara - the magnificent living dinosaurs – all nestled amongst a spectacular native bush setting with spring-fed pools full of rainbow trout.
  2. Visit Four Internationally recognised wineries, where you'll take part in a series of comprehensive wine tastings.
  3. Visit the Agrodome Farm Show, an exciting and informative insight into the world of New Zealand agriculture, featuring 19 breeds of sheep, sheep shearing, cow milking, lamb feeding and dog demonstrations.
  4. The highlight of your tour is an unrivalled boat trip through the spectacular Glowworm Grotto. As your eyes adjust to the dark, the walls and roof sparkle with the lights of glowworm larvae. Glide silently through the starry wonderland of the glowworm grotto, your way lit by a myriad of tiny glowworm lights glittering, and reflecting off the water.
  5. Experience an authentic Maori welcome - When you visit Te Puia at night, you enjoy an in-depth experience of the customs and traditions of Maori, with a traditional powhiri (Maori welcoming ceremony), a warrior's challenge and a full kapa haka (Maori performing arts) concert.
  6. Enjoy a first-class Maori feast - Feeding guests is regarded by Maori as an honour and a sign of a tribe’s mana (standing), so a sumptuous banquet is provided during the evening. This banquet combines contemporary cuisine with a traditional hangi (earth-cooked oven meal), where kai (food) is steam-cooked by hot rocks in the earth, giving it a delicious smokey flavour.
  7. Enjoy our illuminated thermal valley - Following dessert, you will be transported by our 'people movers' to enjoy the spectacular lighting of the Te Whakarewarewa Geothermal Valley. Guests can wander around the illuminated natural attractions, including our world famous Pohutu geyser, while enjoying more Maori-inspired delicacies and a hot drink.
  8. Discover stories of New Zealand's ancestors' arrival and settlement in Rotorua at the world class exhibition gallery at Te Puia.
  9. See the New Zealand's flightless bird in a specially lit kiwi house with kiwi specialist guides at hand.
  10. Explore Te Whakarewarewa Thermal Valley - the unique geothermal reserve, with thermal activity ranging from boiling mud pools to the world famous 30 metre (100 foot) Pohutu geyser, which erupts up to 20 times a day.
  11. Enjoy the cultural performance - Haka
