“Geothermal Wonderland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013 via mobile

We had Trent taking us out for the day, and he did a marvelous job! He knew so much and was very knowledgable regarding the land and the sights! I would definitely recommend this company to anyone wishing to see the spectacular geothermal wonderlands in Rotorua, New Zealand!

Thanks for your kind words Annie, even as a New Zealander its interesting to go with a local and learn a little more about the area, all the stories and secrets. I myself try to go with local guides where ever I travel as you get more from them than internet or books. We look forward to your next visit to Rotorua Annie and if you have any friends or relatives we would love to show them around, cheers Annie!

“Awesome personalized tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2013

My sister bought me the full day tour as my birthday present. I was picked up by my guide, Huru, and since it was off season for tourism, I got a personal tour. Huru was AWESOME. Funny, engaging, personable and knowledgeable. I could not be happier with my experience and will be recommending this tour, and Huru in particular, to anyone I know visiting New Zealand.

“Best half day tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2013

My husband and i were in Rotorua as part of our honeymoon in NZ. We hadn't booked any tours but came across this half day tour with Elite Adventures Rotorua. It was a great price for everything you get and learn. Our guide, Huru, picked us up from our Hotel in the morning, and that's where the fun began. Huru was a great guide, very helpful, he is a local and has lived in Rotorua for, from memory, most of his life, if not his whole life, so he knows what he's talking about. We had a great morning learning about the thermal activity and seeing the sights. On our way back Huru sung my husband and i a song, Pokarekare Ana, a song about love. It was amazing! Thank you Huru!
We'll be coming back to see you again.
Very highly recommended.

“Best Experience-Do Not Miss”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2013

Thank you Trent for sharing your culture with a couple from the US. You allowed us to experience your love of the land, the people and culture. Your personal insight and connection to both Maori and NZ European cultures enabled to educate us through many entertaining and serious stories, plus a few jokes mixed in. Don't be tempted to pass this opportunity up, ask for Trent and be educated and enlightened. Thanks to Trent we will be back to Rotorua.
