Rotorua Tour from Auckland with flexible activity options (small groups)

Full Day tour of the geothermal wonderland and adventures playground of Rotorua where you can choose the activities you want to visit or do.

On this tour you will be picked up from your accommodation in our modern comfortable mini-bus and driven through the stunning Waikato countryside, the most extensive farming area in the world, on a fully guided journey to Rotorua. During the trip south you will encounter stunning scenery, great photo opportunities, beautiful mountains and see several different farm animals along the way.
